This CONPES document formulates a national policy for digital transformation and artificial intelligence. This policy aims to promote the generation of social and economic value in the country through the strategic use of digital technologies in the public sector and the private sector, to boost productivity and promote the well-being of citizens, as well as generating transversal enablers for digital transformation, so that Colombia can take advantage of the opportunities and face the challenges related to the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). Digital transformation of construction is specifically mentioned within section 5.3.2. Create enabling conditions for digital innovation in the public and private sectors, with the purpose of being a mechanism for the development of digital transformation. On page 47 of the policy.
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.
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 document indicates how information management aligned with ISO 19650 will be carried out on the Aeropuerto del Café project.
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.
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.
Between 2017 and 2022, Planbim worked collaboratively with Minvu in the implementation of BIM in new home construction projects, as well as in initiatives to improve existing homes and their surroundings. This process allowed the generation of BIM Information Requests for four types of ministry projects, as well as a technological tool to support the review of BIM projects in the institution.
After reviewing different existing BIM role matrices internationally, in 2017 Planbim worked with representatives of the public, private and academic sectors to define BIM roles for the Chilean industry. In November of the same year, this work resulted in the BIM Role Matrix that defines five roles (Direction, Review, Modeling, Coordination and Management in BIM), and identifies the BIM capabilities necessary to exercise them, as well as the knowledge and previous experience, not related to BIM, that the people who perform them must have. This Matrix is connected with the Uses and with the BIM execution plan that is requested from Suppliers in public project tenders, all included in the Chilean BIM Standard for Public Projects.
The Automated Project Review Platform (PARPro) is an automatic verification tool for IFC models, whose main objective is to reduce the time that Ministry teams, without having expert knowledge in BIM, spend reviewing projects received from suppliers. The use of BIM in the Ministry’s first pilot projects has already helped reduce review time by 75%. PARPro will further increase the efficiency of review processes.
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
