A global team of over 200 experts are continually improving these templates for free access to all BIM communities around the word.

In alignment with ISO 19650, the templates team didn’t want the world to keep reinventing the wheel when it comes to BEPs and other ISO 19650 resources. Having a central resource for experts to curate and all teams around the world to access for free helps advance the use of BIM more rapidly – but importantly – in a standardised way.


The field of construction is one of the most important industries for most countries, which affects the efficiency of the entire management system, including the state of the environment. The importance of this industry for the economy of any country can be explained by the fact that capital construction creates a large number of jobs and is the main consumer of intermediate products and related services. Due to its economic importance, the results of the construction sector can significantly affect the development of the economy as a whole. The economic benefit of the development of this industry is the multiplier effect of funds invested in construction and interconnected processes. After all, with the development of the construction industry are developing: production of building materials and equipment for their manufacture, engineering, metallurgy and metalworking, petrochemistry, glass production, woodworking and porcelain industry, transport, energy and more. Also, construction creates the basis for the development of small and medium-sized businesses, thus creating new jobs. Thus, the growth of the construction industry contributes to the strengthening of the country’s economy and solves many social problems. The construction industry is one of the key sectors of any economy. For example, in the EU its share is 9% of GDP, while in Ukraine this value is at 3.97% of GDP, although with a gradual increase in recent years. It should be noted that construction consists of three main sectors: residential, non-residential (commercial and social) and infrastructure. In Europe, in 2016, 78% of all construction was residential and non-residential, and the remaining 22% were engineering structures.

This report talks through the current state of the construction industry in Ukraine and then goes on to illustrate and explain the problem that needs to be solved. The main conclusion of the document comes in the sections around ways to implement BIM for success and the expected results which this can deliver.


The Ministry of Communities and Territories is the Ukrainian government ministry responsible for public housing infrastructure development. The Ministry was established in 2005 as the Ministry of Construction, Architecture, Public Housing and Utilities. It also can be considered as a successor of the Ministry of Construction and Architecture that existed before 1994. In 2007-2010 the ministry was split into two: Ministry of Regional Development & Construction and Ministry of Public Housing and Utilities.
The purpose of adopting the order of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine “On approval of the Concept of implementation of technologies of construction information modelling (VIM-technologies) in Ukraine and approval of the action plan for its implementation” is to determine the principles and mechanisms for implementing state policy on the introduction of construction information modeling technologies as a tool for further reform, modernization and digital transformation of the construction industry of Ukraine.

The draft act proposes the introduction of phased, gradual modernization and digital transformation of the construction industry of Ukraine through the introduction of construction information modeling with the simultaneous creation of appropriate conditions, including the implementation of regulatory and regulatory and regulatory regulation of the processes of implementation of projects for the construction and operation of buildings and structures.


Provides an international framework for the creation of a information Schema for the Railway infrastructure domain

This guidance was issued in July 2019 by the UK BIM Alliance, BSI and CDDB as a complement to?Information Management according to BS EN ISO 19650 – Guidance Part 1: Concepts, published in April 2019.??
It aims to help UK businesses and public clients understand the processes?indicated?in ISO 19650, with a focus on the different parties and their team activities referred in the standard:?the?Appointing Party, Lead Appointed Party and Appointed Party; the Project Team, Delivery Team and Task Team.?
The guidance explains the role of each party by summarising their activities and outputs at each stage of the construction project, for instance how to coordinate information requirements, delivery milestones and information standards. It covers how to?establish?the information protocol, the management of the common data environment, how the information should be shared,?reviewed?and eventually archived alongside the lessons learned to help with future projects.??
It details how each party fits into a team and across teams, which documents need compiling, which resources need sourcing and/or mobilising, how information models are assessed for compliance and which party?is in charge of, say,?establishing?the delivery team’s capability and?capacity.?
A summary?provides?an overview of the Information Management Process, divided in stages, from Assessment and Need through Tender, Appointment, Mobilization, Collaborative Production of information and Information Model Delivery to Project Close-out.


Dubai Municipality is one of the largest governmental institutions in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), it is considered as one of Dubai’s leading growth and development institutions in terms of its smart projects and services. Over the years, Dubai Municipality has excelled in managing 6 vital sectors. This has helped to make Dubai one of the most advanced and sustainable global cities. Dubai Municipality has also been able to expand and grow through 34 Departments, 126 sections and 4 Centres within an organizational structure that includes support and development offices and the persistent efforts of more than 11,000 employees and workers. The Dubai Municipality mission is to plan, develop and manage an excellent city that provides the essence of success and sustainable living.

Dubai Municipality released a circular updating its mandate regarding the usage of BIM systems across construction projects in the Emirate. Circular (207) is titled ‘Regarding the expansion of applying the (BIM) on buildings and facilities in the emirate of Dubai. The circular is dated 23 July, 2015, and states Dubai Municipality’s intent to expand the usage of BIM. According to the circular, Dubai Municipality’s BIM mandate from 2013, issued through circular (196), has been succeeded by circular (207), as part of the civil body’s efforts “to follow up on the latest construction trends from all over the world, for all the benefits that come to all the parts involved in this, from project owners to consulting firms and contractors and government departments.” BIM is being encouraged “because of how much it lowers the cost of construction projects and the time taken to finish them; and increases the level of coordination between the engineers working on designing and implementing the project, and their counterparts in the management and funding and manufacturing the project.”
The latest circular aims to expand the usage of it (the technology) to include the following as part of the BIM mandate:
BIM Should be applied to the architectural and mechanical works for the following buildings:
– buildings that are above 20 floors.
– buildings and facilities and compounds with areas larger than 200 thousand square foot.
– buildings and special facilities like hospitals and universities and all that is similar to that.
– all governmental projects.
– all buildings and projects that are requested from a foreign office.”
The circular also repeats the requirements of its previous circular, which would continue to stay in effect:
BIM should be applied to:
– Buildings that are above 40 floors.
– Building with area’s larger than 300 thousand square feet.
– Specialised buildings such as hospitals, universities, and all that is similar to that.
– All buildings requested on behalf of a foreign office.
