India aims to spend $1.4 Trillion building Infrastructure. Prime Minister launched Gati Shakti – National Master Plan for Multi-modal Connectivity, essentially a digital platform to bring 16 Ministries including Railways and Roadways together for integrated planning and coordinated implementation of infrastructure connectivity projects with the goal of developing infrastructure to lower logistic costs and improve the economy. Digitalization and BIM will play a very important role in helping India achieve its Infrastructure Goals. CDCPIndia has been conceived by veterans from the industry who has been directly or indirectly practicing and promoting Digital ways of working in the Construction & Infrastructure Industry. Vision of CDCPIndia is to “Inspire and Collaborate with Construction Professionals across India to advance Digitally enabled Processes and Technologies in construction & Infrastructure sector”. CDCPIndia shall work in collaboration with several existing Institutions, Professional Bodies, Academia, Corporates and Government to Improve the Project Delivery & Asset Management Efficiency by use of Digital Technologies and Processes. CDCPIndia is a not-for-profit organization and has been registered as a Society under Society Registration Act
BIM Community for Africa with the aim to encourage BIM adoption across the continent.
buildingSMART Chapter Slovenia is a local branch of the international organization buildingSMART International (bSI), which is the leading initiator of the development of Â“open BIMÂ” standards in the field of digitalization of the built environment. buildingSMART Chapter Slovenia operates within the Association for Information Modeling of Construction, siBIM. The mission of the buildingSMART Chapter Slovenia is the promotion of open BIM in Slovenia and everything related to it: support for the development of open standards in bSI and local promotion and implementation at home. The main goal is to educate the stakeholders involved, to implement current transfers of information and data within BIM processes with the help of developed open standards, especially between all software tools.
BuildingSMART Chapter Slovenia has set itself the following specific tasks for the period 2021 – 2023:
Â· Raising awareness and educating the Slovenian professional public about the importance of open BIM standards;
Â· Active participation in local initiatives related to the digitization of the built environment;
Â· Organizing the implementation of bSI educational programs and certifications;
Â· Encouraging and involving our members in working groups within bSI;
Â· Cooperation with other Chapters and exchange of experiences.
The Slovenian Association for Information Modelling of Works (abbreviated name is Association siBIM, abbreviated as siBIM) is a voluntary, independent, and non-profit organisation that brings together engineers and supporters of engineering fields who actively participate or want to participate in information modelling of buildings of the built environment (BIM), with the aim of organized integration and education, professional development, mutual socialization and exchange of experience. The association was founded on 30.1.2015 in Ljubljana on the initiative of individuals from the construction industry and the university. The founding assembly was home to 32 interested engineers and experts from all over Slovenia who represented the fields of civil engineering, architecture, mechanical engineering, ICT, economics, etc.
The objectives of the association are to:
– Education and information of members and the general public on information modelling of the built environment (BIM approaches, BIM-technologies), its practical application and developments in this field.
– Organisation of education, consultations, workshops and conferences on information modelling (BIM) of the built environment.
– Organisation and assistance in the preparation of working groups, preparation of guidelines and recommendations for the profession.
– Providing examples of good practice in the field of information modelling (BIM) of the built environment and promoting the exchange of experience between members.
– Representation of the interests of all Slovenian sectors operating in the field of information modelling (BIM) of the built environment at international level.
– Cooperation in the preparation of guidelines and regulations in the field of information modelling of the built environment.
– Connecting with related associations in the world.
The siBIM website contains information on how to join the association as well as lots of other useful information for BIM adoption relevant to Slovenia. The site contains information about the association, news and current events. As well as this information there is also a document collection which shares useful info such as the manual for the implementation of BIM and the Guide to introducing information modelling in the European public sector.
Public institution “Skaitmenine statyba” (“Digital Construction“) is an organization that joins associations of Lithuanian construction sector and coordinates the digitalization process of Lithuanian construction.
This website is focused on Green and Energy Efficiency Building in Vietnam. The website is collated and hosted by the Ministry of Construction (MOC) to promote this topic within industry. The project is to improve energy efficiency in commercial buildings and high-rise apartments in Vietnam. It is funded and supported by the United Nations Development Program/Global Environment Facility (UNDP/GEF). The project aims to reduce the intensity of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the Construction industry in Vietnam over the next few years. The direct objective of the project is to improve energy efficiency in commercial and apartment buildings in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi. This objective is accomplished through three components (1) Improving the enforcement capacity of the Code on Energy Efficient Buildings; (2) Initiatives to support the development of the construction market; and (3) Applications and replication of energy-saving construction technologies. Each component includes a number of complementary activities designed to remove barriers to strict implementation of the Code and greater adoption of energy-saving technologies, systems and practices. in construction in commercial buildings and high-rise apartments.
The website contains lots of useful information about how to provide greener and more energy efficient buildings. Whilst not directly BIM focused the site make references back to the BIM initiatives in Vietnam and the importance of this in the next steps. The website has lots of news and updates as well as containing resources such as documents and support tools / templates which can be used.
The Association “Information Modeling Technologies in Construction” was established in Ukraine in June 2018 as a voluntary association of legal entities, with the aim of non-profit activities aimed at promoting the development, popularization and implementation of information modeling technologies in the construction industry of Ukraine. The members carry out the implementation of this goal through the provision of engineering and information and consulting intellectual services in the field of construction activities. The motto of the Association is Â‘Bright Ideas TrustÂ’, where BRIGHT IDEAS refer to innovative construction solutions based primarily on the introduction of information technology (BIM), and TRUST is the basic principle of activity of all members and partners of the Association among themselves. The groups mission is to Combine enterprises and organizations to develop consolidated proposals for the development and promotion of information modeling technologies in the construction industry of the domestic and international market through effective interregional and international integration. The mission also includes participation in the formation of the regulatory framework, including national BIM standards, in accordance with the needs of society and the market.
The association website contains many resources related to BIM adoption in Ukraine, including, standards and a roadmap for BIM implemtentation. The web site also contains sections with guidance on BIM for clients, contractors, designers and operators to help them with their BIM journey. The website contains links to news, events and other useful publications.
