Welcome to the BIM Institute

The BIM Institute is Africa’s voice for Building Information Modelling (BIM).

As a non-profit organisation our 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 and BIM Academy Africa serve as Africa’s BIM voice in developing standards and education for the built environment. The organisation also provides guidance to Architectural or Engineering organisations wanting to implement Building Information Modelling (BIM) within their organisation.

Our information is directed at organisations that have already made the decision to implement BIM and are now asking the question ‘So what do we do next?’

One might ask: “Can I just buy the BIM and get on with it?”

The short answer is “No”. The process and experience of implementing BIM within an organisation is likely to be different from one organisation to another. The BIM Institute provides some generic guidance that will need to be adapted to suit the particular needs of your organisation or project.
