BIM Germany is the national hub for the digitalization of construction. It serves as the federal government's central public point of contact for information and activities pertaining to Building Information Modeling (BIM), and it is jointly operated by the Federal Ministry of Digital Affairs and Transport and the Federal Ministry of Housing, Urban Development and Building. Its purpose is to bundle competencies in those fields, to act as a central point of contact, and to coordinate and drive forward all necessary developments. Coordination efforts concerning international developments and standardization are also part of the tasks assigned to BIM Germany.

In addition, HOCHTIEF ViCon supports the harmonization and introduction of the most important BIM applications that have been selected by the ministries.
