Peru currently faces inefficient performance, cost overruns, delays and stoppages in the construction of public investment projects; of the 2346 paralyzed building projects, 1042 appear as the application result of the traditional methodology for the planning and execution of projects. In the present work, an alternative to solve this problem is the application of the BIM methodology in electrical and communications installations associated with public and private investment projects through Revit 2023 software. As a result of the present study, it was possible to streamline the documentation, obtaining a multidisciplinary environment of three-dimensional modeling of both electrical and telecommunications installations with parametric and precise accuracy hand in hand with technological advances such as 3D printing, augmented reality, and industry 5.0, among others and leading a correct administration and supervision of all parties involved in the building throughout the life cycle of the project. These results demonstrate the multiple benefits of the BIM methodology applied in public or private projects related to electrical and telecommunications installations, serving as a basis for future actions.
