In 2015, the BIM Laboratory of Santa Catarina was created, known as LaBIM-SC, which was part of the BIM GOV SUL Network together with the states of Paraná and Rio Grande do Sul. LaBIM-SC was in charge of preparing case studies, with the aim of maximizing the potential gains with the use of the BIM methodology applied to projects, execution and inspection of works, as well as management and operation of assets.
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
- Stimulate and promote training in BIM
- Propose regulatory acts that establish parameters for purchases and public contracts with the use of BIM
- Develop technical standards, guides and specific protocols for the adoption of BIM
- Develop the portal and BIM SC library
- Stimulate the development and application of new technologies related to BIM
- Encourage competition in the market through neutral standards of BIM interoperability

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 Philippines Department of Trade and Industry (abbreviated as DTI) is the executive department of the Philippine government tasked as the main economic catalyst that enables innovative, competitive, job generating, inclusive business, and empowers consumers. It acts as a catalyst for intensified private sector activity in order to accelerate and sustain economic growth through comprehensive industrial growth strategy, progressive and socially responsible trade liberalization and deregulation programs and policymaking designed for the expansion and diversification of Philippine trade, both domestic and foreign.
The DTI, through the Construction Industry Authority of the Philippines (CIAP), and the Philippine Contractors Association (PCA) launched the Construction Industry Roadmap 2020-2030 on 28 March 2019 with the theme ‘Tatag at Tapat 2030’, which will ensure the sustainability of the construction industry’s growth and its competitiveness. The roadmap will also complement the government’s massive infrastructure program, Build Build Build. The roadmap aligns its goals and strategies with the Philippine Development Plan and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. It highlights the vision of the Philippine Construction Industry to be a global partner in building nations by 2030 through the achievement of the integrated four pillars: Productivity, Sustainability, Globalization, and Institutions.
BIM is a high-potential future innovative technology with high potential for exchanging and utilizing building information. The World Economic Forum (’16) selected BIM as a ripple technology for the building and construction industry. BIM-based design is effective in improving design office work efficiency and productivity by improving design quality by minimizing construction errors. This BIM roadmap document looks at how BIM should be implemented, the challenges and how these can be addressed.
The main part of this document looks at the diagnosis of problems, these include:
1. The need to improve standards, systems and administrative systems for BIM utilization. There is currently an inadequate practical application of guidelines because the standards for creating BIM models for each design and construction stage and submitting BIM models/books are not specific
2. The lack of infrastructure for BIM utilization and insufficient technological development. International standards ISO 16739 and ISO 19650 were enacted, but in the case of a domestic BIM national standard and data management environment there is insufficient basis for BIM utilization.
3. There is insufficient training for BIM. Projects are currently outsourced to BIM-specialized companies due to lack of BIM performance of design practitioners due to scattered educational programs and BIM certification operation.
4. There is insufficient BIM integrated management due to lack of an official BIM operating organization. Establishment of a BIM implementation strategy for BIM-related policies, R&D and revitalization is needed.
The Construction Industry Council (CIC) of Hong Kong was set up with the main function of forging consensus on long-term strategic issues, conveying the industrys needs and aspirations to Government, as well as providing a communication channel for Government to solicit advice on all construction-related matters. The CIC developed itself as a Centre of Excellence for BIM, formulating strategies for market transformation and promoting cross-discipline collaboration and wider adoption of BIM. The CIC provides support to the industry in five aspects, promotion on BIM adoption, training, standards, guidelines and specifications, BIM personnel certification and BIM courses accreditation, and BIM-related researches using the CIC Research Fund.
To lead Hong Kong’s construction industry into a new digital era, the Construction Industry Council has worked with key industry stakeholders to prepare the Roadmap. The vision is set SMART Construction Empowered by Digitalisation: all processes involved in the built asset lifecycle are streamlined and digitalised to continuously improve productivity and safety during planning, design, construction and operation, and sustainability for better quality of life.
The Construction Digitalisation Roadmap serves as a reference material for industry practitioners to facilitate construction digitalisation in Hong Kong. The Roadmap has been developed through extensive consultations with industry stakeholders. Between mid-2020 and early 2021, surveys, interviews and forums were conducted to gather ideas and create a consensus to drive digitalisation forward. The Roadmap summarises the background, approach, strategies and action plans based on extensive industry consultations, and finishes with key milestones and a way forward regarding the development of construction digitalisation in Hong Kong. Digitalisation in Hong Kong and as part of this Roadmap is all about leveraging technologies to continuously improve business processes. The CIC will regularly monitor and review the implementation of the Roadmap.
The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT), is a ministry of the Japanese government. It is responsible for one-third of all the laws and orders in Japan, and is the largest Japanese ministry in terms of employees, as well as the second-largest executive agency of the Japanese government after the Ministry of Defence. MLIT has been promoting the adoption of Building/Construction Information Modelling/Management (BIM/CIM) technologies, and has been working with Japanese national and local governments to utilize BIM/CIM in their business operations. As part of this work MLIT have provided the public leadership for BIM in Japan and supported BIM pilot projects within the country.
The Vision for the Future and Roadmap to BIM document published by MLIT is the outcome of a roundtable session in 2019. The document looks at the defininition of BIM, as well as the visions and uses for it both now and in the future. The document also contains a roadmap for BIM adoption which includes a more detailed process to action and achieve this. Included in this report are 3 strategies that MLIT propose in order to realise the future values of BIM, these are:
– Utilizing market functions, the public and private sectors shall work together under appropriate roles.
– Advance efforts that could precede others and then attempt generalization (Improve accuracy by Plan, Do, Check, Action cycle)
– In order to strengthen the international competitiveness of the Japanese building industry, proceed as much as possible in accordance with international standards and norms.
The Strategic Plan for the Implementation of BIM (Plan Estratégico MIC) establishes, from a government perspective, how the government will provide support for this goal, based on an innovative methodology to improve the construction processes with the aim to improve the public infrastructure.
BIM will enable construction stakeholders to generate, exchange and manage information among the multiple actors that participate in building projects throughout their entire lifecycle. This Strategy plan will consider the efficiency of planning, decrease overtime and cost overruns, as well as strengthen transparency and accountability of costs.
BIM adoption will improve the quality of projects and their comprehensive monitoring, as well as offering resilient infrastructure, making the best use of public resources and stimulating the global competitiveness of the Mexican construction industry. This document presents the specific objectives and strategies planned to fulfil these purposes, indicates the actors involved to achieve them, and takes into consideration public, private and academic sectors. A roadmap has been produced, which contains the specific lines of action that must be implemented to implement BIM.
Construction processes are subject to outdated procedures and sets of requirements, which prevent progress in the industry. The Polish Roadmap for BIM implementation is an attempt to outline the direction of changes that will allow the construction industry to shift to more modern and, at the same time, more effective ways of working.
Developing a national Roadmap and strategy for transformation is necessary, because due to the different specificity of the market and legal conditions in different countries, it is not possible to adopt new solutions by means of regulations.
The main goal of the Polish BIM Roadmap is to achieve a level of adoption similar to the British BIM implementation level by 2025, but enriched with many additional elements, such as Digital Twins, digital security in distributed processing technology, Lean methodology and ecology. The process of implementing BIM in Poland should be based both on top-down activities (legislative, standardisation, standardization and pilot) and self-organisation of the construction market in the form of bottom-up activities (organisation of work in Lean, integration of processes, systems and information).
The Federal Government created the Committee for Strategic Implementation of the Building Information Modelling (CE-BIM) in June 2017 to formulate a strategy that would align public and private sector initiatives and boost the use of BIM in Brazil. This document (Estratégia Nacional de Disseminação do Building Information Modelling – BIM) was produced to encourage the development of the construction sector and bring more cost effectiveness and greater transparency to the bidding processes, in addition to contributing to the optimisation of process maintenance and asset management.
The report gives the strategy, specific objectives, indicators and targets, a roadmap from 2018 to 2028, and information on the escalation of BIM.
