The age of guessing is over

The BIM Institute is the business voice for Africa’s BIM community. To help develop that voice, the BIM Institute have developed a five year strategic business plan to help enhance and develop BIM across South Africa and its neighbouring countries.

The business plan strategy includes a big five approach:

  1. Strategy: The mission, vision, goals, and objectives, along with management support, BIM champions, and BIM strategic advisors.
  2. Uses: The specific strategies of implementing BIM in South Africa, including those BIM uses for generating, processing, communicating, executing, and managing facility information.
  3. Process: The means and methods by which the BIM National guide are accomplished, including understanding current South African processes, designing new BIM processes and developing transition processes within an African context.
  4. Partnerships: The resources needed to support the BIM initiative, including building relationships with software vendors, hardware vendors, and industry professionals.
  5. Personnel: The effects of BIM on the personnel, including the roles and responsibilities, the structure or hierarchy, the education and training programs, and change readiness required for Africa to adopt BIM.
