A global team of over 200 experts are continually improving these templates for free access to all BIM communities around the word.

In alignment with ISO 19650, the templates team didn’t want the world to keep reinventing the wheel when it comes to BEPs and other ISO 19650 resources. Having a central resource for experts to curate and all teams around the world to access for free helps advance the use of BIM more rapidly – but importantly – in a standardised way.

The BIM toolkit has been created with the intention of supporting different countries with the creation of their technical BIM framework. The toolkit is aligned with the ISO 19650 standards series, to assist with BIM adoption and open global opportunities. The overview document explains the various companents of the toolkit, how to use each of the documents, and provides advice on how to best start your journey depending on BIM maturity.

Hosted on the CDBB’s website, this massive open online training course (MOOC), launched in 2019, is presented in timed modules including reference materials and explanatory videos. It offers a guided pathway to a standards-based, public sector-led Building Information Modelling (BIM) implementation and is aimed at policymakers and public clients involved with procuring, owning or operating built assets.  

The modules provide an understanding of BIM and the strategic building blocks of its implementation, alongside other topics such as the importance of public leadership in the construction sector’s digital transformation and how digital transformation can create private and public sector benefits.  

The MOOC is delivered in two ways:  

  • A self-study option for public sector stakeholders who cannot engage with CDBB’s international team.  
  • More interactive reference material that supports and supplements direct engagement with the CDBB’s International team and partner consultants.  

Additional modules will be published over time.
