This document compiles the experience of promoting BIM, and the design and implementation of national plans, related to the methodology by the member countries of the BIM Network of Latin American Governments. The strategies and actions that public institutions in the region applied according to the BIM Initiatives of each country are identified. The intention is that this document is a point of reference for the implementation and promotion of BIM by the State, from a Latin American perspective built on the basis of the local realities of each of the countries that make up the Network. With this document , we hope to encourage the creation of support networks for the transfer of knowledge, experiences and lessons learned.
This report presents the results of a first regional survey of companies in the construction sector in Latin America and the Caribbean to better understand the slow adoption of Building Information Modeling (BIM), a new collaborative work methodology based on data models that contributes enormously to improving the productivity of the sector.
With the aim of understanding the degree of progress in the implementation of BIM in Latin America and the main actions that have been carried out, CAF—development bank of Latin America—promoted the development of a survey of information on this methodology. in the region. This survey includes a diagnosis of the progress of BIM implementation at the national level in different countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. It is important to highlight that this diagnosis presents the specific state of progress of the period of its development, between January and May 2022, so, at the time of reading, it may not coincide in some aspects with the current situation of the countries.
State institutions in different countries in Latin America and the Caribbean have begun to implement BIM, in order to more accurately calculate the costs and times of the projects, as well as generate more fluid communication between the different actors involved. increasing the efficiency and transparency of processes. Internationally, a series of cases demonstrate the benefits of implementing BIM. Among them, one in the United States where, after its implementation in 32 projects, it identified: i) a 7% reduction in time, ii) a 10% reduction in costs through early detection of interference, iii) ) the elimination of 40% of the changes not considered, and iv) and the reduction of 80% of the time for cost estimation. The Physical Infrastructure and Digital Transformation Management generated this guide with the objective of promoting knowledge about the implementation of the BIM methodology in the public sphere. It explains what BIM is, identifies the minimum steps for its implementation in a public institution, and provides simple tools for public officials to integrate it into their institutions.
BIM Community for Africa with the aim to encourage BIM adoption across the continent.
This document consolidates the methodologies and learnings of Planbim of Chile and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) in the incorporation of the Building Information Modeling (BIM) methodology in pilot projects. In the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region
