Creating a Better Built Environment

National BIM Initiative

Working Groups have been set up for each of the six priority areas identified by the National BIM Initiative Report

They are:

BIM Guidelines
- Develop Australian technical codes and standards for BIM for adoption,
- Align Australian BIM codes and standards with international equivalents.
Integrated Project Delivery
- Risk can be mitigated through better provision of information prior to construction and significant speed and cost advantages can be achieved through contracts that are based on mutual trust and shared risk.
Object Libraries
- Enable progressive access to an Australian library of generic BIM objects and information for manufactured products that comply with Australian BIM standards.
Education
- Develop and deliver a BIM awareness and promotion program for key government and broader industry participants,
- Develop and start delivery of BIM training packages to industry practitioners,
- Encourage the inclusion of BIM as a collaborative technology for both professional education and vocational training in the tertiary sector.
