As the construction sector transitions from paper-based plans to digital ones, the Digital Enablement for Queensland Infrastructure - Principles for BIM implementation (PDF icon 248 KB) will guide the Queensland Government’s consistent adoption of this new approach. This will provide certainty to industry for its future investment and training decisions.

The principles and overarching workplan are required to establish a whole-of-government framework to meet the goal of implementing BIM on major government infrastructure projects by 2023.

The rich information generated for each government project will improve the design, construction, management and operation of each asset.

All major government construction projects with an estimated capital cost of $50 million or more, which commence a detailed business case from 1 July 2019, will be required to use Building Information Modelling in accordance with the principles.
