BIM for Environment Sustainability Assessment


A lack of interest in or understanding of the importance of sustainability in modern construction and infrastructure development is a recipe for career failure. The same might soon be said about lack of understanding of the full range of openBIM technologies. The BIM for Environment Sustainability Assessment course will ensure that learners are never labelled in either of the above categories.

In this course, you will learn essential environmental sustainability assessment tools used in the openBIM environment, and on completion of the course, will have a good understanding of energy performance analyses, carbon omission analyses, solar radiation and lighting analyses, natural ventilation system analyses and water acoustics analyses, as well as thermal comfort control and acoustics analyses. These skills, combined with the ability to analyse energy embedded in materials used for project design will equip you with the requisite knowledge and skills for a successful career in construction and infrastructure industries that are increasingly defined by the rapidly emerging openBIM technologies.

The BIM for Environment Sustainability Assessment course is one of eight specialised BIM microcredentials available.


  1. Delivered by industry experts, this course is delivered over a three (3) day workshop.
  2. On-campus participants will be provided with an exclusive welcome session prior to commencing the first workshop.
  3. Successfully completing the course will equip participants with a microcredential digital certificate.
  4. This microcredential aligns with the 5-credit point subject, BIM for Environment Sustainability Assessment (SSUD70-306) in the Master of Building Information Modelling and Integrated Project Delivery. The microcredential may qualify for credit towards a Bond University Program. Review the full course outline including details of all assessments required.


This microcredential is aimed at professionals in architecture, project management, construction, valuation and property development, city planning or related fields with an interest in gaining a foundational understanding of Building Information Modelling concepts.

Assumed Knowledge*
Participants require basic skills in architecture, construction or a related field; or experience in the building, construction industry.

*Assumed knowledge is the minimum level of knowledge of a subject area that students are assumed to have acquired through previous study. It is the responsibility of students to ensure they meet the assumed knowledge expectations of the subject. Students who do not possess this prior knowledge are strongly recommended against enrolling and do so at their own risk. No concessions will be made for students’ lack of prior knowledge.
