Basic BIM Guide for Public Officials


State institutions in different countries in Latin America and the Caribbean have begun to implement BIM, in order to more accurately calculate the costs and times of the projects, as well as generate more fluid communication between the different actors involved. increasing the efficiency and transparency of processes. Internationally, a series of cases demonstrate the benefits of implementing BIM. Among them, one in the United States where, after its implementation in 32 projects, it identified: i) a 7% reduction in time, ii) a 10% reduction in costs through early detection of interference, iii) ) the elimination of 40% of the changes not considered, and iv) and the reduction of 80% of the time for cost estimation. The Physical Infrastructure and Digital Transformation Management generated this guide with the objective of promoting knowledge about the implementation of the BIM methodology in the public sphere. It explains what BIM is, identifies the minimum steps for its implementation in a public institution, and provides simple tools for public officials to integrate it into their institutions.
