The Global BIM Network was recently featured in the Global Infrastructure Hub‘s stocktake of InfraTech as a case study. Which showcases an exemplar of international cooperation and knowledge transfer to enable and scale investment in infrastructure technology. The case study detailed the importance of public policy in advancing the digitization of the construction sector, and the social, environmental, and economic benefits resulting from digital transformation.
The case study further highlighted how the Global BIM Network has been enabling the global employment of Building Information Modelling (BIM) methodology through a host of public events and knowledge exchange activities. This has enabled members to address similar challenges by sharing findings, resources, outputs, and lessons learned.
It further highlighted the Network’s Information Collection, an online, open-access repository of resources which provides public leadership materials, collaborative frameworks, references for communication & communities, and materials for capability and capacity building. These resources have been contributed by Network members to provide relevant information for building the global public sector’s digital capacity and capability in relation to BIM.
The Infratech case study also highlighted the Global BIM Network’s Roadmap 2021-25, which was launched at the first General Assembly in 2021. The roadmap outlines a shared vision for the built environment and collaborative pathways that the network will take to advance digitalization.
