BIM is the digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a building, piece of physical infrastructure or environment. BIM serves as a shared knowledge resource for information about an asset throughout its lifecycle—supporting decision making—from strategic appraisal and planning, design and construction to operation, maintenance and renewal.

BIM enables a collaborative way of working using digital processes to enable more productive methods of planning, designing, constructing, operating and maintaining assets through their lifecycle.

Governments in Australia recognise the importance of BIM in the delivery and management of infrastructure assets as it offers many benefits throughout the asset lifecycle and has the potential to drive efficiency, value for money, productivity, innovation and safety.
