Advancing BIM for Infrastructure, National Strategic Roadmap
This document from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) provides an example of a national-level BIM roadmap focussed specifically on highways and roads.
The objective of the Roadmap outlined in this document is to help state Departments of Transportation (DOTs) strategically develop a uniform, nationwide framework related to BIM for infrastructure, open data-exchange standards and methods for adopting those standards. BIM tools and a robust personnel training and upskilling programme are also included.
These state-led and FHWA-supported actions can then become the basis for planning and implementing BIM for infrastructure to better deliver projects and transportation services at the state’s DOT level. Adopting BIM for infrastructure with a coordinated approach will allow the greater highway industry to make investments with fewer concerns about differing requirements across the states.
