Who we are | What we do | How we do it

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 caused by digital transformation across the Built Environment.


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.
