Harmonisation of Building Information Modelling and Digital Engineering Services Procurement: A Guide to Contemporary Practices
The Australasian BIM Advisory Board (ABAB) is thrilled to announce the release of ‘Harmonisation of Building Information Modelling and Digital Engineering Services Procurement: A Guide to Contemporary Practices’.
Andrew Curthoys, Chair of ABAB, said “This guide aims to streamline the procurement of Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Digital Engineering (DE) services, anticipating the growth in demand from Australasian governments, and to provide confidence to industry to invest”.
Established in 2017, the ABAB represents an innovative partnership in the Australasian building sector, uniting government and industry to enhance project outcomes through BIM. With this new guide, ABAB addresses the current inconsistencies in BIM requirements, offering a flexible template for various government jurisdictions and agencies.
Andrew Curthoys acknowledged the work of Transport for NSW noting that, “The DE Services Prequalification Scheme by Transport for NSW and insights from BIM experts has ensured that the guide is tailored for government agencies looking to procure BIM services and BIM providers aiming to collaborate with the government”.
This release underscores ABAB’s commitment to driving consistency, fostering competition, and promoting best practices in the BIM services sector. The guide is a testament to the collaborative spirit of Australasia’s building sector, poised to improve the future of BIM and DE services procurement.
