Australia: An interesting framework about BIM adoption

Today I came across an interesting Australian documentation.
It mainly talks about:

  • People: Behaviour and Capability
  • Procurement and contracting
  • PTI/BIM protocols
  • Asset management
  • Information exchange and National Object Library
  • Standards
  • Technology

In the document are interesting graphs, e.g. about BIM users experiences:

To me, as a German, it is surprising to see that BIM experiences in Germany are very far behind other high tech countries.

The document can be opened at:

LOD: The Level of Development (LOD) Specification is a reference that enables practitioners in the AEC Industry to specify and articulate with a high level of clarity the content and reliability of Building Information Models (BIMs) at various stages in the design and construction process.

There is a new LOD specification on bimforum.org.
