Analysis of national BIM implementation strategies, for the creation of a reference frame-work for the implementation of BIM in Mexico.
Keywords:Building information modeling, BIM implementation strategy, National BIM standards, BIM framework, BIM regulations
For some years now, the construction industry has been looking to improve productivity levels, reduce time and avoid cost overruns of the projects they perform; and has found a solution in BIM. In Mexico, the lack of national standards for the use of BIM makes it difficult to reach its potential. This research located different national strategies for BIM implementation world-wide; which were analyzed through a comparative analysis of qualitative content, in order to identify the various actions, and regulations that these countries have used to homogenize this implementation. The research concluded that the public and private sectors must create the con-ditions to promote implementing BIM, by creating criteria and standards related to the man-agement and delivery of the information in the projects, to successfully take advantage of this approach. The results will serve as support for the creation of a reference framework to imple-ment BIM in Mexico.
