Welcome to the BIMe Initiative!
A summary of the BIMe Initiative is available below in a number of languages.
The BIMe Initiative is a not-for-profit knowledge generation and sharing effort undertaken by volunteer researchers from both industry and academia. The BIMe Initiative provides a community-based, research-driven alternative to top-down, authority-led, and prescriptive BIM diffusion policies. Supported by clear knowledge structures, a network of international subject matter experts, and an expanding modular language, the BIMe Initiative delivers an innovative, coherent and timely response to the opportunities and challenges brought-forward by BIM adoption at all organisational scales.
BIMe Initiative Projects are supported by in-kind contributions, research grants, commercial services, and institutional sponsorship.
The BIMe Initiative aims to improve the performance of individuals, organisations and project teams in the construction industry through:
- Developing a modular language for digital transformation across the Construction Industry. The language will simplify complex topics and weave multiple research efforts into one consistent whole;
- Generating reliable industry-wide competency benchmarks and identifying competency gaps to be addressed through continuous performance improvement activities;
- Developing competency-based learning methods, tools and materials applicable across tertiary education, vocational training, self-learning and professional development;
- Facilitating the exchange of knowledge and experience between academia and industry; and
- Developing free-to-use tools and templates to simplify decision-making processes and automate repetitive procedures.
