Last night saw the successful launch of the Australasian Procurement and Construction Council (APCC) and Australian Construction Industry Forum (ACIF) BIM Knowledge and Skills framework at Standards Australia in Sydney.

 

BIM Academy is proud to have been a contributing partner to this initiative over the last two years and Will Joske received an award of appreciation at the launch ceremony.

 

This Framework is an important and timely resource that articulates the BIM knowledge and skills required for disciplines in the building and construction industry, across all project phases. It provides guidance for the required knowledge and skills to enable the upskilling of the market sector through a consistent approach.

 

Given the benefits of BIM to the construction sector, a Knowledge and Skills Framework is necessary to ensure that Australia harnesses BIM’s potential and strategically engages and applies this new technology in a consistent manner.

 

The joint initiative will assist the sector to optimise BIM technology, ensuring that expertise is shared across the industry in a consistent manner. The Framework is a critical element in the construction sector’s approach to improvement and is the guide to establishing a national standard for BIM knowledge and skills.
