The India BIM Association is the voice of India’s BIM community. To help develop that voice, we have created Committees to take on projects relating to the advancement of BIM across India. At India BIM Association we majorly focus on: (1) BIM education & training; (2) BIM summits & events; (3) BIM policy development; (4) BIM maturity assessments & certifications. 

India BIM Association has its Steering committee and International advisory committee. We have working committee getting formed. We are on the process of launching few other committees for policy field players, process field players, technology field players, etc. These committees need to actively support steering and acceleration committees in executing the IBIMA’s Vision/Mission.

Each committee is designed to encourage collaboration, communication and coordination to promote BIM diffusion in Indian sector. Each Committee has its own Terms of Reference used as a guide to inform Committee Members of the Purpose, Goals, and Operations of the Committee. Each Committee will work to create relevant content to share with the India BIM Association Members and the Industry. If you would like to know more or would like to get more involved, we encourage you to contact us at
