About Us - Nepal BIM Forum

Nepal Building Information Modeling Forum (NBIMF) is a non-profit organization officially registered in Finland (2018) and Nepal (2020).  It is a group of scholars who work collectively to educate the Nepalese Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC)  industry about BIM. NBIMF mainly focus on the four areas of BIM as Research, Implementation, Standardization, and Education of Building Information Modeling (BIM). In short, we call it a “RISE” revolution of the Nepalese AEC industry.

Our Mission is to support the Nepalese AEC industry in adopting BIM in its projects and to help them deliver high-quality construction projects. We actively coordinate with various stakeholders of the Nepalese construction industry and provide them with necessary technical support in BIM implementation. Our vision is to see Building Information Modeling (BIM) being used in infrastructure projects at the Nepalese AEC industry from the preliminary phase of the project to the final phase of construction and operation management.

We support and educate the Nepalese AEC industry and make them aware of the benefits of BIM. We also work with the Nepalese government to implement BIM in various Nepalese infrastructure projects. NBIMF also work together with Nepalese BIM professionals and discuss digital construction solutions that can be adopted by the professionals of Nepalese AEC industry. 

BIM Research

NBIMF works for the Research on various BIM topics that would help Nepal to develop its AEC industry. We are actively looking for students and professionals who want to research on BIM topics, if you want to research on BIM topics, you can always contact us.

BIM Implementation

NBIMF supports Nepalese government agencies and various Nepalese AEC stakeholders in implementing BIM. We provide the government agencies with required support to implement the BIM in various projects.  

BIM Standards

BIM is a powerful tool that can change the way Nepalese AEC industry designs, constructs, operates and maintains facilities We help various institutions to prepare BIM standards. We are also actively working with the Nepalese government to establish the Nepalese BIM standards.

BIM Education

BIM Education is a very important part of NBIMF, to understand how BIM works, and how it is changing the AEC industries, we work with various organizations and institutions to teach them the benefits of BIM.
