The BIM methodology is making its way to an increasing extent within the asset management market. There are experiences fundamentally focused on buildings and industrial installations. However, projects are also advancing in civil engineering, some involving ports, where project contracts have already been submitted with BIM requirements.
Puertos del Estado (State-owned Ports) have started a process that helps in the implementation of the BIM within port assets, with this BIM Guide (GUÍA BIM) being the first step.
This document is a reference for Port Authorities when launching their projects, executing their works and finally managing the assets that are generated. It aims to foster the development of the “intelligent port” concept in an environment in which the digitisation of processes advances inexorably.
Given the changing technological environment in which this initiative is developed, this BIM Guide must be understood as a living element, susceptible to future updates, contributions and improvements
Puertos del Estado will continue to play a coordinating and leadership role in this field, supporting the Port Authorities in their digitalisation journey and in the sphere of competence established by the current port legislation.
