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.

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.

The Building Information Council (Bouw Informatie Raad, or BIR) promotes widespread application of BIM in the Dutch construction and infrastructure industry. BIM improves cooperation between the links in the construction chain through a system of integrated building information management, whereby all relevant information is available during the complete life cycle of the building, from design to maintenance. BIR is a unique partnership between various stakeholders in the construction industry. The members represent both their construction industry segment and their own company. They make practical agreements that are in the interests of the entire industry and ensure these are implemented within their own segment. The partnership focuses on implementing BIM to strengthen the quality, continuity and competitive position of the Dutch construction and infrastructure industry. The construction industry could be given a real boost if the implementation of BIM can be accelerated in close cooperation with all industry stakeholders. BIM facilitates quality and efficiency improvements and faster construction at lower costs. BIR is organized in three administrative units: the Council, the Programme Office and the Programme Team.

BIR aims to be the driving force behind the implementation and development of BIM by coordinating, directing, streamlining and linking the various BIM initiatives. BIR further wishes to promote knowledge sharing and the integration of BIM in construction education. BIR’s goals and activities are described in a programme plan hosted on the website which is updated annually. The programme plan published in 2014 and entitled ‘BIM: the driving force behind a stronger construction industry’ describes BIR’s vision of BIM, its goals and the strategy it has set out to achieve these. In 2015, this programme plan was updated with the addendum ‘Communicating and assimilating BIM’, followed in 2016 by ‘Sharing BIM knowledge and BIM Loket’. ‘Assimilating BIM in government policy’ was published in 2017. The website contains areas around BIM education and explaining ‘what is BIM’. There is also a publication section with several resources which can be used.

The Construction Industry Transformation Programme (CITP) was developed to address the issues in the industry and also to enact a transformation of the industry into one which is modern and updated. Central to this the CITP’s aim to become the catalyst for generating a succession of interlinked multiplier effects on a host of sectors, to help transform Malaysia to be a developed nation with a sustainable high-income economy. The CITP is only the first step in transforming the construction industry; the successful interdependence among the various ministries and agencies is paramount for the sustainability of Malaysia’s long-term goals. The CITB collaborates with myBIM to provide BIM Training. This program is mainly targeting the industry player such as Contractors, Architect, Engineer , Surveyor etc. to learn the process of implementing the BIM process including the usage of tools and managing the construction site by using BIM. Adapting to the advantages BIM offers requires investment in staff, processes, and technology. Approaching these changes with a positive attitude will speed the transition and allow firms to quickly realise the productivity and quality gains possible with BIM.

The myBIM website contains details of the physical myBIM centre as well as detail around their programme and approach to providing upskilling related to BIM in Malaysia. The website also contains sections on BIM resources, current training courses and the facilities available at myBIM. The website also contains other knowledge resources and media links.

IM Forum Panama is a permanent technical council, which brings together the main professionals and institutions related to BIM in Panama. BIM Forum Panama, seeks to channel technical concerns, knowledge and information related to BIM, also constituting an instance of development, dissemination and good practices for technological development in the construction sector.

Statsbygg is the Norwegian state’s key advisor in construction and real estate matters, including property owners, managers and developers. It aims to be the state’s first choice in organising and planning, usually leading a number of the country’s largest and most complex construction projects.

At any given time Statsbygg will usually have over 100 live projects running. The use of BIM is an important part of its work on digitising building information. The organisation has set requirements for the use of BIM in all projects since 2011 and has developed its own requirement set for BIM deliveries.

This website contains information about Statsbygg and Norway’s current BIM deliverable requirements. All projects shall, unless otherwise agreed, submit in accordance with the requirements of Statsbygg’s BIM manual. Digital submissions, coupled with machine validation of model files, makes it possible to assess the progress of a model and the quality of deliverables related to a project phase. To facilitate this, there is a system called SIMBA, which compares reviews models against Statsbygg’s BIM requirements.

BIM requirements specify how BIM models are to be created, what information they need to contain and how it is structured. The quality of BIM models is important because the aim is to connect BIM models with information from other sources, so stakeholders must be able to trust that the information is correct and in the right place in all projects.
