More emerging markets in Asia are aware that BIM implementation is critical in achieving the 60% growth in infrastructure projects expected by 2025.
Asia has fostered BIM implementation throughout the development of its roadmap. In ASEAN, Singapore is considered to have implemented BIM effectively and Malaysia is increasingly fostering the implementation to support the Construction Industry Transformation Plan (CITP) 2020. A minimum of 40% implementation rate of BIM for public projects above MYR 100 million is recommended by CITP.
The Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) invested MYR 1.5 million on BIM-awareness programme. The government has also increased the 2018 budget on technical and vocational education and training of MYR 4.9 billion. This is to increase the number of local skilled and productivity in construction projects.
RICS BIM Conference 2018 will look at the national guide, roadmap and international standards of BIM implementation. It will cover the key factors, challenges and obligations of project stakeholders in implementing BIM throughout the construction lifecycle.
Topics covered include:
Opening & keynote address from Ministry of Works, Malaysia
Panel discussion: BIM implementation-digitalisation and technological disruption in the construction lifecycle
RICS guidance note: International BIM implementation
Infrastructure project: Adoption of BIM Level 2
Panel discussion: BIM implementation — what does it take for quantity surveyors?
