Who we are

Planbim is a 10-year Corfo initiative, which was born in 2016. Our goal is to increase productivity and sustainability - social, economic and environmental - of the construction industry through the incorporation of processes, work methodologies and information and communications technologies that promote its modernization throughout the entire life cycle of projects.

National BIM Goals 2020 and 2025

BIM Implementation

Planbim has among its goals the implementation of the BIM methodology for the development and operation of public building and infrastructure projects starting 2020, and also the incorporation of BIM in private projects by 2025.



BIM Standardization

To achieve these goals, Planbim has developed the BIM Standard for Public Projects; It has built terms of reference to request BIM in a standardized way in various types of State projects; and has developed platforms, tutorials and technical guides for a better understanding of BIM.

Digital Capabilities

In addition, Planbim has worked with industry and academia to define a matrix of BIM roles and capabilities so that they can be integrated into the academic networks of universities and training centers. It has also promoted, together with the Ministry of Education and other public and private institutions, the incorporation of BIM in Technical High Schools.
