The Kazakh Research and Design Institute of Construction and Architecture began in 1931, it was then the Council of People’s Commissars of the Kazakh Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic (KASSR). In January 1990, on the basis of the scientific part of the Kazakh State Design and Research Institute (KazpromstroyNII project), the Kazakh Research and Design-Experimental Institute of Earthquake-Resistant Construction and Architecture (KazNIISSA) was established. Since 1990, KazNIISSA has been the only leading state research and design organization in the Republic on the problems of the construction complex of Kazakhstan, including areas with particularly complex engineering and geological conditions and regions prone to earthquakes. The group have formed the Commission for the Development of the Regulatory and Technical Framework in the Field of Information Modeling Technology in Construction. The framework for this is strengthening intergovernmental relations and resolving issues related to integration processes, the Basic Organization of the CIS Member States was established by the decision of the CIS Economic Council in order to pursue a coordinated policy in the field of technical regulation and create a unified regulatory framework in the field of construction.
The concept of introducing information modeling technology into industrial and civil construction of the Republic of Kazakhstan was developed in order to meet modern requirements and demands of the industry, also in the face of increasing competition in world markets, tightening requirements for new or existing construction projects, increasing the technological, structural and architectural complexity of modern buildings and structures, as well as the rapid development of information technology. The shortcomings of the two-dimensional design that has passed from the past technological era and further work with paper drawings do not provide sufficient manoeuvrability and resource efficiency for market participants. The introduction of information modeling of building objects implies the transition of the construction industry to a new technology that changes the nature of the work. The purpose of the Concept is to formulate a vision and create conditions for the development of the domestic construction industry through the transfer of modern technologies for information modeling of construction projects, which should subsequently have a positive impact on the growth of competitiveness in foreign markets of enterprises.
