Global BIM policies can help break down information silos—and economic barriers—by sharing common processes, workflows, and data across borders.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) has transformed how structures are designed, planned, built, and operated. Projects are delivered faster with less waste; using BIM also creates opportunities to reskill workers. Worldwide, digital transformation in construction has been slow. But global BIM policies are now being championed at the government level, which is accelerating digital transformation, aligning countries on building standards, and creating a common language to facilitate international collaboration.
Digital transformation in the architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry has historically been fragmented, with industry and governments at varying stages of adoption. Digitally progressive companies have a competitive advantage: They are able to deliver projects faster and for less money. With governments taking the lead in the global BIM movement, there will be added incentives to strengthen the construction industry and build smarter.
What Is Global BIM?
Global BIM is the idea that nations create and implement a common set of standards for built assets in the digital realm. Global BIM promotes shared learning, collaboration, and mentoring between nations—the UK, for example, is well advanced in construction technologies and is partnering with countries such as Singapore, Colombia, Vietnam, and the United States to share learnings about digital transformation. The goal is to create a digital approach to design, plan, build, and operate buildings and infrastructure.
