The Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing (Kementerian Pekerjaan Umum dan Perumahan Rakyat – PUPR) is a government entity responsible for public housing and associated infrastructure in Indonesia. It is responsible for national BIM implementation and has produced a BIM implementation roadmap. The roadmap consists of several main stages, namely Adoption, Digitalization, Collaboration and Integration, which is expected to be achieved within a maximum of five years. As a follow-up to this roadmap release, a PUPR BIM Team was formed, which was tasked with “controlling” the implementation of BIM.

The PUPR BIM team has prepared various initiatives for the national implementation of BIM. Activities that have been carried out include:

  • BIM technical debriefing in the design, engineering and construction phases so that the Team is able to analyse the output of BIM data and information
  • The preparation of the BIM Model “Application of R&D Technology in KSPN Morotai”
  • Exploring collaboration with UII and ITB as BIM Center of Excellence (CoE) so that all UNOR can utilise this CoE for training and certification, both for PUPR ASN, and service providers (consultants and contractors)
  • A collaboration with a BIM Authoring Software organisation, which will provide free software licenses to the Ministry of PUPR.

The BIM Advisory Board was established by the Australasian Procurement and Construction Council (APCC) and the Australian Construction Industry Forum (ACIF), together with the key standard-setting bodies, NATSPEC, buildingSMART and Standards Australia. They have produced a number of resources, including a guide to the adoption of BIM. Two recent Australian Government reports (SmartICT and the Australian Infrastructure Report) recommended an integrated approach between government, industry and researchers for the development of BIM in Australia.

The Australasian Advisory Board’s membership consists of those organisations who have a pivotal role to play in influencing and leading the adoption and changes required for the optimum delivery of construction projects through BIM. It is a team of experts from government construction policy agencies, peak construction associations and standard setting bodies who share their valuable knowledge, skill and experience to set goals and deliver on the Advisory Board’s strategic direction.

The BIM Advisory Board has defined the strategic framework for BIM in Australia. Its vision includes improved productivity and asset outcomes. It is hoped to be achieved by the Board’s strategy to take a leadership and coordinating role in the consistent adoption of BIM and associated integration and collaborative processes.
