BIM Roadmap 2021-2030

Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport Korea

BIM is a high-potential future innovative technology with high potential for exchanging and utilizing building information. The World Economic Forum (’16) selected BIM as a ripple technology for the building and construction industry. BIM-based design is effective in improving design office work efficiency and productivity by improving design quality by minimizing construction errors. This BIM roadmap document looks at how BIM should be implemented, the challenges and how these can be addressed.

The main part of this document looks at the diagnosis of problems, these include:
1. The need to improve standards, systems and administrative systems for BIM utilization. There is currently an inadequate practical application of guidelines because the standards for creating BIM models for each design and construction stage and submitting BIM models/books are not specific
2. The lack of infrastructure for BIM utilization and insufficient technological development. International standards ISO 16739 and ISO 19650 were enacted, but in the case of a domestic BIM national standard and data management environment there is insufficient basis for BIM utilization.
3. There is insufficient training for BIM. Projects are currently outsourced to BIM-specialized companies due to lack of BIM performance of design practitioners due to scattered educational programs and BIM certification operation.
4. There is insufficient BIM integrated management due to lack of an official BIM operating organization. Establishment of a BIM implementation strategy for BIM-related policies, R&D and revitalization is needed.
