SIBIM is the Ministry of Public Works’ (Ministerio de Obras Públicas) BIM task force, which aims to implement BIM in the different areas of public affairs in Argentina. It is part of the Strategic Plan for Digital Transformation of the Ministry, consisting of the implementation of technological tools that contribute to making national public projects more transparent, participatory and efficient. The documents of the SIBIM library are created to guide the implementation process. For more information contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The main objectives of SIBIM are to:
- Develop an orderly set of principles, guidelines and procedures to regulate and establish a work methodology.
- Study alternatives that promote national alignment in relation to efficiency in information management, quality in public works, and inclusion and neutrality in the use of technologies.
- Generate references to expand the use of BIM in Argentina.
SIBIM’s documents are the result of national and international experiences, and are in continuous development. These documents are freely downloadable. Also relevant is the SIBIM’s YouTube channel.
BIM in Action (Bim En Acción) is an initiative of the School of Construction Management (ECG), belonging to the Argentine Construction Chamber (CAMARCO). BIM in Action develops meetings, documents and articles for studios or companies to implement BIM. Its objectives include information exchange, collaborative work and the commitment of the different actors in the construction value chain. The various BIM in Action activities are promoted with the help and support of different companies and software developers.
The BIM in Action website contains past and future events alongside many documents and downloads focused on explaining specific BIM topics. Some of these resources have a more technical aspect. Events are shared on YouTube here.
The BIM Forum Argentina arises from the awareness of various professionals and institutions in recognising the historical moment that the architecture, engineering and construction industry is going through in Argentina and the opportunities that BIM offers in this context. It is a technical and permanent instance that summons companies, institutions and professionals linked to BIM in Argentina.
The Forum is set up to promote the use of BIM in Argentine architecture, engineering and construction, through research, dissemination, training and development of good practices guiding its implementation responsibly for the benefit of society as a whole. It is organised through a Council and represents, in the most varied way possible, the main objectives mentioned above. The website contains details of the BIM Forum’s activities and many documents.
The Ministry of Public Works is spearheading this plan to implement digitisation into the lifecycle of public sector projects for more transparency, efficiency and increased citizen participation. The plan will push the use of BIM to incorporate new technological and innovative tools within digital government actions and initiatives.
