BIM becomes obligatory in construction of social infrastructure
Starting January 1, 2023, the creation and maintenance of an information model (BIM) may become mandatory in the design, construction or reconstruction of healthcare facilities if the construction cost exceeds 500 million rubles and the work is funded from the federal budget.
The draft of the relevant resolution of the Government of the Russian Federation is now at the stage of public discussion and examination.
The new document also says that from January 2024 these requirements will apply to all capital construction projects of social infrastructure (education and science, health care, physical education and art, social services), where financing is carried out with the involvement of budgetary funds or funds of legal entities with a share participation of the Russian Federation more than 50%.
Recall that in June of this year, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law that formally enshrines the concept of “information modeling in construction” (BIM technologies) in the Town Planning Code of the Russian Federation. The Ministry of Construction noted that the adoption of this law will optimize business processes and reduce the cost of construction and operation, as well as reduce the time of work.
