BIM in Africa
If your located in Africa or do work in that region of the world I encourage you to become a member of the BIM Institute.
The overriding objective of the BIM Institute is to promote the development and improvement of information technology processes in the construction industry.
The BIM Institute and its solution providers recognize that a successful construction industry is essential to us all and now is the time for us to rethink our quality control systems for us all to benefit. We wish to see the dramatic improvements by helping deliver the standards and requirements of the Building Information Modelling strategy for Africa while also promoting other information technology processes and standards in our industry that can help strengthen South Africa’s construction industry for the future of any construction project implementation and beyond.
The BIM Institute are in alliance with organisations within the construction and facilities management sectors dedicated to improving processes within the industry through defining the use and sharing of information.
The current work being carried out by the BIM Institute includes:
Partners and affiliated members within the BIM Institute include architects, engineers, contractors, building owners, facility managers, manufacturers, software vendors, information providers, universities and more.
We encourage all industry members from every part of our industry to join the BIM Institute as an individual or company. When we collectively use information technology or BIM, everyone stands to gain.
