Malaysia’s Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) invested MYR 1.5 million on BIM-awareness programme, 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 government has also increased the 2018 budget on technical and vocational education and training of MYR 4.9 billion, which will increase the number of local skilled and productivity in construction projects.

Conference highlights:

  • Malaysia’s BIM national guide and roadmap from the Ministry of Work.
  • Mass Rapid Transit Corporation (MRTC) latest showcase of BIM level 2 implementation in Malaysia’s infrastructure project.
  • Digitalisation and technological support for BIM implementation in the construction lifecycle.
