Building Information Modelling (BIM) benefits government and industry by boosting innovation, productivity and competitiveness in the construction industry.

Queensland is leading the way with our coordinated whole-of-government approach following the release of the Digital Enablement for Queensland Infrastructure - Principles for BIM implementation (PDF icon 248 KB) in November 2018.

Transitioning from paper-based plans to digital ones will deliver significant benefits during the design, construction and, most significantly, the operational phase of a project’s life.

BIM is already being used on major projects, including Cross River Rail. Since 1 July 2019, all Queensland Government construction projects with a value of $50 million or more are required to use BIM from the early planning phase.

All major government infrastructure projects will transition to implement BIM by 2023.
