Trimble Malaysia and Brunsfield International Group have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), expressing their readiness to develop a collaborative partnership focused on accelerating Building Information Modeling (BIM) adoption in Malaysia’s construction industry. The initiative supports the push for modernisation by advocating the use of technology in creating a more efficient, lean and productive industry that is fit for the digital economy.
In September 2017, Brunsfield BIM (BBIM) Innovation Centre was established with the aim to enable BIM practices and support the growth of the BIM community in Malaysia. The centre’s 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. Trimble will also collaborate with Brunsfield on research and software application in real projects as case studies. — Construction+ Online
