Advancing knowledge

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an innovative process and technology that is transforming the way buildings and city infrastructure are designed, analyzed, constructed, and managed.

Despite its numerous advantages, the construction industry in Africa is slow to adopt the BIM process.

We believe that the ignorance of the modalities and benefits of BIM is a major cause of the resistance to adoption.

BIM Africa Initiative is a civil society organization formed to enable and regulate the adoption and implementation of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in the Architecture Engineering and Construction (AEC) Industry across Africa.
