Sundt is pleased to announce that Dan Russell, our director of construction technology, is among the country’s first construction professionals to receive a new national accreditation in the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) offered by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). Just 34 people across the country tested successfully to receive the new professional accreditation, known as the Certificate of Management-Building Information Modeling (CM-BIM). It is the first assessment-based credential to recognize construction professionals on their ability to use the process.
“What I have always enjoyed about construction is working with different disciplines on the challenge of converting the intent of the design team into a physical building. With the emergence of BIM over the last few years, we now have a better tool to communicate the intent, work collaboratively as a team and deliver better projects to our clients,” said Russell. “Getting credentialed shows our clients, their designers and our subcontractor partners Sundt’s commitment to using innovative technology to provide the highest quality projects in a cost effective manner.”
Stephen E. Sandher, AGC’s chief executive officer, calls the new credential “a way to recognize professionals who have demonstrated a real mastery of the building information modeling process.”
