Welcome to the BIM Institute

The BIM Institute is a national non-profit organisation whose objective is to improve the construction quality and productivity of the built environment through leadership of information and education. It is impartial and remains software agnostic while supporting and helping to deliver the standards and requirements for Building Information Modelling/Management (BIM) in Africa.
The BIM Institute also serves as Africa’s business voice for the education community and owners who are working collectively with documents and tools that will assist the implementation of BIM in the construction industry.
This website is home to the  National BIM Guide and other BIM brief templates. It is also a repository of documents and tools that will assist the implementation of BIM in the construction industry. The National BIM Guide is developed through various international partnerships including  AEC UK BIM Standards , Canadian BIM Council Natspec (Australia), BIMExcellenceRoyal Institute of Ireland Architects and the BIM Institute steering committee members.

BIM is an innovative technology and process that has transformed the way buildings are designed, analysed, constructed, and managed.
The time for us to rethink our quality control systems is now and for us all to benefit from information technology that is constructed and developed efficiently for a construction environment. Indeed, before we can even think BIM we need to educate industry members and stakeholders that all software solutions are vital if the industry is to satisfy all its players. The BIM institute is setup to provide neutral and non-biased information on all construction technology, standards and processes supported by solution providers, professionals and experts in the industry.
We connect the industry.
