Building Information Modelling (BIM) has gained much traction in recent years as digital construction technology that will fundamentally transform
the building and construction industry practice in the delivery of an excellent built environment. It is a game changing technology that will
improve the construction productivity as well as the level of integration and collaboration across the various disciplines in the
construction value chain. It is therefore important for the industry to embrace the technology with clarity.
The Singapore BIM Guide Version 2 is part of the industry’s efforts to demystify BIM and to give clarity on the requirement of BIM usage at different stages of a project.
Under the leadership of the BIM Steering Committee chaired by Er Lee Chuan Seng, Emeritus Chairman, Beca Carter, and comprising of leaders in BIM, the BIM Guide Workgroup has contributed much time and effort to compile the various best practices to make this Guide possible over a short span of time. We would like to thank them for their contribution.
We hope that every BIM user can truly reap the benefits of BIM by integrating it into his/her day-to-day workflow – from feasibility study to facility management. We hope that BIM users can use these guides as a platform to jumpstart their BIM adoption, before they leap to greater heights, innovating and transforming their workflow.
BIM is a journey. We envisage that it will grow with time and will inspire more advanced and innovative use of BIM. I would like to encourage all BIM practitioners to join in this industry effort to grow this Guide into a wealth of BIM knowledge.
