About Us

Welcome to the BIM Institute for learning

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

As a nonprofit company, our objective is to improve the construction quality and productivity of the built environment through the 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  serves as Africa’s BIM voice in learning and development for the built environment. The organisation also provides guidance to AEC organisations wanting to implement Building Information Modelling (BIM) and programmes specially designed for students and post graduate in the built environment industry in the form of blended learning modules of interactive online LMS, ongoing webinars with experts around the world, range of online BIM tools software courses and access to virtual expo demonstrations with leading technology vendors.

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 for Africa provides some generic guidance that will need to be adapted to suit the particular needs of your organisation or project.
