The BIM Institute was established in May 2015 in partnership with Hypenica and CanBIM.

The overriding objective of the BIM Institute is to promote the development and improvement of information technology processes in the construction industry.

The BIM Institute and its solution providers recognize that a successful construction industry is essential to us all and now is the time for us to rethink our quality control systems for us all to benefit. We wish to see the dramatic improvements by helping deliver the standards and requirements of the Building Information Modelling strategy for Africa while also promoting other information technology processes and standards in our industry that can help strengthen South Africa’s construction industry for the future of any construction project implementation and beyond.

The BIM Institute are in alliance with organisations within the construction and facilities management sectors dedicated to improving processes within the industry through defining the use and sharing of information.

The current work being carried out by the BIM Institute includes:

  • Education and BIM Accredited professional status
  • Interfacing with local and international partners to tackle the BIM strategy for Africa.
  • Hosting events and providing media publications to promote BIM in Africa

Partners and affiliated members within the BIM Institute include architects, engineers and contractors, building owners, facility managers, manufacturers, software vendors, information providers, universities and more.

We encourage all industry members from every part of our industry to join the BIM Institute as an individual or company. When we collectively use information technology or BIM, everyone stands to gain.
