Building Information Modelling (BIM)

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 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. As of December 2020, there are 22 government projects valued at $50 million or more using BIM, and three government projects valued at less than $50 million.

Departmental approaches which have been developed to align with our Principles for BIM implementation can be found at the following links:
