The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) champions the development and transformation of the built environment sector, in order to improve Singapores living environment. BCA oversees areas such as safety, quality, inclusiveness, sustainability and productivity, all of which, together with their stakeholders and partners help enables them to meet their mission to transform the Built Environment sector and shape a liveable and smart built environment for Singapore. BCA leads the transformation of the built environment sector through developing a highly competent professional workforce, adopting productive and game-changing technologies, and promoting the sectors niche expertise overseas.
Integrated Digital Delivery (IDD) is the use of digital technologies to integrate work processes and connect stakeholders working on the same project throughout the construction and building life-cycle. This includes design, fabrication and assembly on-site, as well as the operations and maintenance of buildings. IDD is one of the key thrusts in the Construction Industry Transformation Map (ITM), and is aligned to Singapore’s efforts to transform the construction industry by creating a highly-skilled workforce trained in use of the latest architecture, engineering, construction and operations technologies.
The Singapore IDD builds on the use of BIM and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC), which have been implemented in many projects over the past few years. The BCA guide to IDD presented on this website includes and covers 4 main areas: Digital Design, Digital Fabrication, Digital Construction, and Digital Asset Delivery and Management. The IDD simplifies the different stages of a construction project with the integration of digital technologies that improve collaboration among stakeholders and construction efficiency, minimises construction mistakes and costly rework, and delivers smarter buildings. This website contains all of the links and resources related to BCAs current implementation of IDD.
