Vladimir Putin ordered transfer to BIM technology during this year
President Vladimir Putin instructed the Government of the Russian Federation to introduce information modeling technologies in construction until July 1, 2019. This should encourage the modernization of the industry and improve the quality of construction.
To ensure the transition to BIM technologies, the government is tasked with developing performance indicators for the life-cycle management system and approving information modeling standards. In addition, it is necessary to bring new standards into line with previously adopted normative and technical documents and with international and Russian legislation, and also to create libraries of standard project documentation.
The government was instructed to provide appropriate training for specialists working in the field of design and take measures to stimulate the development and implementation of domestic software for BIM.
