Vietnam BIM & VDC 

Academic Alliance

Powered by Our Industry.


Vietnam BIM & VDC Academic Alliance (VBAA) is a non-profit education and training collaborative organization developed by TBF Academy to elevate BIM and VDC use within Vietnam's AEC industry.

The TBF Academy's VBAA platform focuses on the development of BIM and VDC training and education content specifically for the building industry in Vietnam.


Our objective is to partner with industry leaders (Contractors, Designers, Owners, Suppliers, Manufacturers, etc.) to tailor content specifically for each industry’s needs when it comes to industry-specific BIM and VDC training.

Why we established this forum?
  • There are too many independent training and education outfits that are not providing real-world and industry-related focused materials for the mass professionals in our building industry.

  • There are too many theoretical BIM and technical BIM software courses and none on actual benefits and challenges of BIM in Vietnam by the people who are actually working on the BIM projects.

  • Our industry needs to team up and support each other in order to be more efficient and effective when it comes to the advancement of BIM knowledge in Vietnam. 

  • Support our country to be first in the region to create an industry academic alliance for the BIM-skill and knowledge development of our people. 

"Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence."
