THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW
The Queensland Government recently released its draft
BIM policy and principles and is now seeking feedback from
industry, government and interested parties by 21 April
The Queensland Government has recognised the importance of
Building Information Modelling (BIM) in the
delivery and management of infrastructure assets and is looking to
implement the use of BIM on all major state infrastructure projects
by 2023. As a first step to achieving this, the
Queensland Government has released its draft BIM policy and
principles and is now seeking industry and government feedback.
The draft BIM policy and principles provides a high level
framework for how the Queensland Government proposes to implement
the use of BIM on Queensland infrastructure. It also outlines the
Queensland Government's proposed commitment to using 'Open
BIM' so that BIM information, systems, standards and processes,
enable interoperability and interconnectivity.
The BIM framework (as contemplated by the draft policy and
principles) will apply to:
all Queensland Government departments, agencies and statutory
the full lifecycle of all new state infrastructure assets,
including all vertical (e.g. hospitals and schools) and linear
infrastructure (e.g. roads and railways), and
smaller new and existing projects where cost effective.
The draft policy is looking to advance the use of BIM in the
regulatory areas of workplace health and safety and heritage
conservation by 2020 with a more thorough application to
infrastructure by 2023.
The draft raises a number of key issues that will need to be
how will BIM impact on procurement and contractual
will it apply to local government and to what extent?
how will the transition occur by 2023 and who will fund the
the draft policy flags a central repository of the BIM data -
who will manage this and under what arrangements? and
the draft policy flags the need for building capability and
capacity, including a Centre of Excellence - how will this be
undertaken and at whose cost?
