The ongoing development of the digital built environment in Australia is further instigated by the recent release of the Digital Engineering Framework in New South Wales, the Victorian Digital Asset Strategy (VDAS), and the Principles for Building Information Modelling (BIM) Implementation in Queensland. These documents have all highlighted the need to visit BIM concepts from various perspectives. In September 2018, representatives from Australian universities attending the 42nd Australian Universities and Building Education Association (AUBEA) Conference announced the formation of the Australian BIM Academic Forum (ABAF), with the aim of promoting the academic aspects of Building Information Modelling (BIM). The discussion of the aspiration and expectations revealed unbounded commonality. The membership of the ABAF is organisation-based. Champions within each organisation are to undertake representation as well as delegation.
