There are numerous initiatives within the scope of the Federal Government for the adoption of BIM in Brazil, one of them is the publication of Decree nº 9.983, in 2019, which established the National Strategy for the Dissemination of BIM. This action, in addition to structuring the adoption of BIM at the federal level, also fostered and encouraged the use of BIM in state projects and works.
In order to coordinate and structure BIM actions in Catarina, Decree No. 1,370 of 2021 was published, which establishes the State Strategy for the Implementation and Dissemination of BIM in Santa Catarina (BIM SC Strategy) and the Technical Committee of the BIM SC Strategy (CT-BIM SC), currently formed by eleven public entities. This document shares the BIM Roadmap as well as the 10 objectives of the strategy which include:
- Disseminate the BIM concept and its benefits
- Coordinate the structuring of the public sector for the adoption of BIM
- Promote organizational, cultural and process changes for the adoption of BIM
- Create conditions for the adoption of the BIM methodology throughout the construction life cycle

Plan BIM Peru is the programme supported and promoted by the Peru Ministry of Economy & Finance (MEF) for the successful adoption of BIM Methodologies in public infrastructure investment throughout the country. Within the framework of Plan BIM Peru, BIM is defined as a collaborative work methodology for the management of public investment information, which makes use of an information model created by the parties involved, to facilitate multi-year programming, formulation, design, construction, operation and maintenance of public infrastructure, ensuring a reliable basis for decision-making. BIM does not only refer to the use of technological tools. Its main objective is to ensure efficient information management. BIM is essential for the planning and execution of an investment, from the definition of asset requirements to the end of their use, covering their conception, development, operation, maintenance and disposal.
Plan BIM Peru is the policy measure that defines the national strategy for the progressive implementation of the adoption and use of BIM in the processes of the phases of the investment cycle developed by entities and public companies subject to the National System of Multiannual Programming and Investment Management, in an articulated and concerted manner, and in coordination with the private sector and academia. Plan BIM Peru was born as a political measure of the National Competitiveness and Productivity Plan, recognizing the need to modernize and digitize the systems for the formulation and evaluation, execution and operation of investment projects. The resources on the website help with the implementation of BIM.
PlanBIM Peru Implementation Plan and Roadmap
The National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) initiated the U.S. National BIM Program (NBP or Program) to bring industry stakeholders together to achieve critical digital transformation throughout the entire lifecycle of designing, constructing, and operating the built environment. The Program concept has evolved through conversations and collaborations with leading organizations and communities, involving both the public and private sectors, spanning a diverse cross-section of asset/project types. This effort has recently accelerated combined with significant increases in interest from the owner community throughout the U.S., including both building and infrastructure owners.
The National Institute of Building Sciences is leading the development and dissemination of the next-generation of practice standards and processes for the built environment. The U.S. National Building Information Management Program will provide a step-change in capacity, creating a platform and community to support for digital innovation. Building information modeling is now a widely used technology providing a data foundation for increasingly digitized processes, yet practices and procedures across the architecture/engineering/construction/operation (AECO) marketplace operate under no common standards for data formats. This program offers the opportunity to improve the relationships, performance and profitability of the increasingly digitized U.S. AECO industry.
