Welcome Message

Welcome to the Centre of Excellence in BIM Integration (BIM COE) website.

The National University of Singapore (NUS) has developed an Integrated BIM Roadmap to influence the state of art of BIM technologies across research, industry and education to augment the BIM capability of the Singapore Construction Industry. The NUS BIM Centre of Excellence (COE) will assist the local construction industry to achieve Productivity Improvement by transforming the way people design, deliver and manage the built environment through BIM innovation and practice. This will deliver greater value to clients and users in terms of cost reduction, higher quality, safety, and better performance of facilities over the entire life cycle. To achieve this goal, the NUS COE will be embarking on a series of BIM research projects to develop and implement best practices. It will work with local stakeholders as well as international collaborators.

The centre's aim is "Having Solutions Targeted for the People, by the People"

To Fulfill this aim, the centre is committed to work along three paths:

  • Bridging Disciplines :Synergizing fragmented disciplines in order to enable more effective BIM collaboration.

  • Innovating Solutions : Researching state-of-the-art solutions in order to inspire BIM innovation.

  • Managing Process : Analysing user feedback in order to guide future directions in BIM development.

The BIM COE encompasses professors, researchers and PhD scholars from two departments : Department of Architecture and Department of Building, both under the School of Design and Environment (SDE).It is managed by two NUS academics as Co-Directors, Associate Professor Teo Ai Lin, Evelyn from the Department of Building and Associate Professor Patrick Janssen from the Department of Architecture. The centre is supported by a Steering Committee, comprising NUS staff and representatives from BCA, BCA Academy and industry.
