The construction industry is the cornerstone of many African economies. However, it faces many challenges including high carbon emissions, overlapping work streams, cost overruns and lengthy lead times. Building Information Modelling (BIM) has emerged as a transformative tool that addresses these challenges by streamlining the construction process, maximising its limited resources and promoting sustainability. While BIM has progressively gained traction in many African economies, mass adoption in South Africa requires support and intervention from the government and regulatory bodies. The introduction of global standards in BIM represents a pivotal moment in the construction industry and underscores its importance as a catalyst for profound change across various facets of the industry.
he BIM Conference provides a platform for AECO (Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Operation) professionals to share knowledge and best practices and stay updated on the latest developments in BIM. It serves as a nexus where AECO professionals can explore opportunities for growth and advancement in the sector while addressing key challenges. The current year’s BIM conference will discuss an array of topics including, amongst others, BIM technology advancements shaping the construction industry, sustainability in the construction industry, updates in the regulatory framework and how BIM adoption can be fast-tracked.
