Details :

On 27 December 2018, DEVB TC(W) No. 18/2018 was issued to mandate some BIM uses including cost estimation (5-D) so as to promote a wider use of BIM technology in the construction industry. Two years later, DEVB TC(W) No. 12/2020 was issued on 23 December 2020 to announce a BIM road map for the enhancement of BIM uses, mentioning the adoption of BIM for e-tendering.

While two years ago we needed to think about how a Quantity Surveyor was going to survive in the Era of BIM, what have changed in the past two years? Has our pace in adopting BIM been good enough in this ever-changing environment? Have the constraints faced by Quantity Surveyors in the BIM implementation been resolved? It’s time to do an evaluation and set up a new Survival Kit.
