Abstract: Building information modeling adoption, as well as the use of new technologies are gaining relevance in Brazilian civil construction industry, mainly at construction jobsites, where its benefits have already been proven. Given the increasing trend for developing innovation practices through infrastructure projects lifecycle, this article aims to discuss and exemplify the adaptation of AACE cost estimate classification system in order to guide building information modeling uses during the bidding stages of a Brazilian general contractor. By adopting the methodologies, it was possible to structure and standardize bidding processes, providing better value engineering, and giving the client high-quality analysis given the use of technology.
