Statsbygg BIM Website

Public Leadership

Statsbygg is the Norwegian state's key advisor in construction and real estate matters, including property owners, managers and developers. It aims to be the state's first choice in organising and planning, usually leading a number of the country's largest and most complex construction projects.

At any given time Statsbygg will usually have over 100 live projects running. The use of BIM is an important part of its work on digitising building information. The organisation has set requirements for the use of BIM in all projects since 2011 and has developed its own requirement set for BIM deliveries.

This website contains information about Statsbygg and Norway’s current BIM deliverable requirements. All projects shall, unless otherwise agreed, submit in accordance with the requirements of Statsbygg's BIM manual. Digital submissions, coupled with machine validation of model files, makes it possible to assess the progress of a model and the quality of deliverables related to a project phase. To facilitate this, there is a system called SIMBA, which compares reviews models against Statsbygg's BIM requirements.

BIM requirements specify how BIM models are to be created, what information they need to contain and how it is structured. The quality of BIM models is important because the aim is to connect BIM models with information from other sources, so stakeholders must be able to trust that the information is correct and in the right place in all projects.
