Computational BIM Community (from bimsg.org)

Workgroup

From March to September 2017, a small group of invited practitioners and experts formed a pro-tem 'Computational BIM' workgroup in Singapore. The pro-tem workgroup includes contractors, consultants and professors from Institutes of Higher Learning.


The pro-tem 'Computational BIM' workgroup defined 'Computational BIM' as the innovative problem-solving approach where user-defined algorithms have automated generation and manipulation of building-related information to achieve better work efficiency, effectiveness and productivity gains.


The vision is for the widespread use of computational BIM in Singapore's construction industry to improve the building design and construction processes.


Consequentially, there were good initiatives on computational BIM efforts since 2017 to-date, including:

  • Events & Publications, 
  • Awards & Competitions, 
  • Workshops & Training, 
  • Courses & Certifications, 
  • Pilot Projects & Collaborations.
