Navigating BIM

What is NavBIM?

The NavBIM portal is owned and managed exclusively by the BIM Academy Africa and aims to provide a guide to help an organisation to jump start its Building Information Modelling (BIM) adoption journey.

The categories are developed to help disciplines and organisations journey towards business excellence practices in BIM.

The organisation’s BIM adoption plan should be endorsed by the organisation’s senior management and be reviewed and refined regularly to monitor and guide the organisation moving towards successful BIM adoption.

Software vendors are recommended to contact the BIM Institute to discuss opportunities for listing their software education programs and information with NavBIM to help grow Africa’s ‘Google’ to BIM.

The Navigator BIM (NavBIM) and BIM Workflows is based on the international best practice BIM Framework and is delivered exclusively through the BIM Institute web platform. All information and links provided is through the guidance development philosophy from Australian Natspec. and the Singapore Building Construction Authority . NavBIM  provides guidance to Architectural or Engineering organisations wanting to implement Building Information Modelling (BIM) within their organisation.

NavBIM is directed at organisations and professionals now asking the question So what do we do next?’

How does NavBIM work?

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

The short answer is “ Definitely No”. This portal spells out the issues you need to be aware of to make sure your organisation’s or project transition to BIM takes place with the least problems and best results.

The process and experience of implementing BIM within an organisation is likely to be different from one organisation to another. This portal provides generic guidance that will need to be adapted to suit the particular needs of your organisation.
