Queensland Government’s infrastructure of the future will now be delivered using more efficient digital methods thanks to the implementation of building information modelling (BIM) principles.

BIM is an intelligent 3D model-based process that digitally presents physical features and characteristics of buildings, infrastructure and environment.

Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Cameron Dick said the new Digital Enablement for Queensland Infrastructure – Principles for BIM Implementation policy will help improve the way government infrastructure is designed, constructed and used.

“The Queensland Government will now be leveraging building information modelling, which is an emerging process currently transforming the construction business,” Mr Dick said.

“It’s a collaborative and productive way of working that will help us to better design, construct, manage and operate the assets that we build.

“This will ultimately de-risk projects by improving their on-time and on-budget delivery, as well as reduce work place health and safety issues.

“BIM is a ‘win-win’ for designers, builders, asset managers, and all stakeholders helping us deliver the government infrastructure we all need and use.”

Mr Dick said the use of BIM will now be required on all new government construction projects with an estimated capital cost of $50 million or more.

“The principles used to implement BIM will be put to work as the system is progressively applied on all new major government construction projects by 2023,” he said.

“Our leading approach to the digital design and delivery of Queensland’s public infrastructure is front and centre, particularly for our number one infrastructure project – Cross River Rail.”

Chair of the Infrastructure Association of Queensland (IAQ) Terry Rossitto said the release of the BIM principles policy gives the industry confidence to invest in education and training opportunities, and provides certainty for the sector.

“An example of this is the good work progressed by the Cross River Rail Delivery Authority in developing a digital model illustrating the value these practices can bring to major infrastructure project delivery,” Mr Rossitto said.

“We want to build on the skill base of companies that tender for state government business, and in turn, advance Queensland into the digital infrastructure era.”
