QLD Government Releases Digital Enablement for Queensland Infrastructure – Principles for BIM Implementation

The Queensland Government has released its approach to the consistent and progressive implementation of Building Information Modelling (BIM) on major government infrastructure projects.

The Digital Enablement for Queensland Infrastructure – principles for BIM implementation can be found here – www.dsdmip.qld.gov.au/bim

In 2017, the government released the Building Information Modelling – draft policy and principles for Queensland for public consultation.

Following consultation, the revised document has been renamed the Digital Enablement for Queensland Infrastructure – principles for BIM implementation (the principles) to reflect connections to a broader range of initiatives.

The principles will guide government agencies in their consistent implementation of BIM and will provide certainty to industry for its future investment and training decisions. The principles are required to establish a whole-of-government framework to meet the goal of implementing BIM on major government infrastructure projects by 2023.

The Government decision will see all major government construction projects with an estimated capital cost of $50 million or more, which commence a detailed business case from 1 July 2019, required to use BIM in accordance with the principles.
