The State Planning and Management Department (Seplag) and the General State Control (CGE-MT) are developing a series of actions to promote the use of the BIM platform, an acronym for Building Information Modeling, whose free translation is Information Modeling of Construction, by state agencies/entities. The objective is to improve the quality, reduce the costs and the execution times of public works in the Government of Mato Grosso.
For Seplag’s Deputy Secretary for Planning and Public Policy Management, Sandro Brandão, BIM is a proposal for innovation in corporate governance, planning management, risk and compliance for the modeling of information in the context of construction in order to better produce, communicate and analyze government construction projects. .
“Such a strategy not only facilitates digital transformation in the project management environment, but also contributes to the work dynamics of government agencies by creating a single space for data control and management, avoiding errors, inconsistencies and data loss. fundamental issues for public administration in the short, medium and long term”, he underlines.
The actions consist of training civil servants for an update of information on the methodology, such as the training organized last May for civil engineers from the secretariats of State for public security (Sesp), for health (SES) , finance (Sefaz), infrastructure (Sinfra) and education. (Seduce).
“This is a joint action between Seplag and CGE, of data governance, to allow all the secretariats to work in a homogeneous way, allowing the State to receive projects with the same quality standards” , observes the auditor CGE-MT, civil engineer André Luiz Costa Ferreira.
Following the training, the use of BIM in infrastructure projects will be the subject of training for the “Programa CGE Orienta – Estado Íntegro e Eficaz” in July.
“The idea is to promote the improvement of the quality of the projects so that we can achieve what the population really expects from the public administration of the State. For this, we must start thinking about improving projects, training servers and employees, in a common effort to change the culture,” argues the auditor.
The actions for disseminating the implementation of the technology also involve the development of a manual with technical standards, guides and specific protocols for the adoption of BIM both in civil works (hospitals, schools, etc.)
In addition, as part of the strategy to promote the use of BIM, Seplag and the Comptroller conducted a survey of state agencies/entities regarding the works needed to renovate public buildings that could be included in the pilot project for the implementation of the BIM platform within the government. of state.
“Within the state executive, we are starting to think about BIM in the renovation of public buildings, because we already have knowledge of the building, and the level of intervention is not so high”, specifies the state auditor.
BIM technology enables the creation of a shared construction project with integrated design, architecture and engineering information in a format that simulates real work in 3D, models the structure and all phases of the project (design, execution, operation and post-construction maintenance) . constructions).
According to auditor CGE-MT, with BIM technology, the computer-generated model contains the precise geometry and data necessary to support construction, manufacturing and material supply activities throughout the life cycle of the building. structure, allowing better analysis and control than conventional methods. process.
“BIM allows not only a graphic representation of the construction, but of the building with all its constructive systems, which allows to improve the quality of engineering projects and, more importantly, to improve the maintenance of the works, both in the electrical, hydraulic and structural fields,” he explains.
The use of the BIM concept is more advanced in the private sphere. In the public sector, there are already remarkable initiatives, with different levels of maturity in the implementation of technology, such as the federal government, the armed forces and the government of the state of Santa Catarina.
