But who are the BIM Champions that are driving these processes? A BIM Champion is the person who […]

There is no universally accepted definition of BIM yet, the unavoidable truth is that Africa will never join any of the earlier adopters or have the resources to accomplish the huge amount of infrastructure development that Africa needs. Unless we all work together and produce a new way of working on our continent. Some of […]
Africa’s Google for BIM This is an exciting time for the African construction sector, as it moves into its own era of digital construction and unlocks the efficiencies of digital construction and information management not only during the design stages of projects, but throughout the construction and operational stages too. The key to unlocking this […]
