Having invested in BIM technology over two decades, Brunsfield is committed to embracing BIM technology to enable the industrialisation of the construction industry in Malaysia. Brunsfield BIM (BBIM) Innovation Centre focus is to work collaboratively with industry players to facilitate the use of BIM in the Malaysian construction industry through knowledge-sharing, training and development of BIM resources. An integral part of the Centre’s focus is on the development of BIM policies and BIM standards and methodologies that will enable the enhancement of the Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) process.
Located in Kuala Lumpur, the BBIM Innovation Centre has been working with the latest in technology from industry vendors, including Trimble. In this collaboration, Trimble will provide Tekla software to facilitate BIM training purposes, as well as technical support and product showcase at the BBIM Innovation Centre.
