BIM must be SME-friendly if it is to trigger deep innovation in construction

Last Friday representatives from European construction SMEs gathered in Brussels at the EBC Annual Congress to discuss how to adapt Building Information Modelling (BIM) to construction SMEs’ needs. BIM appears as the ultimate innovative process in the sector. But if this revolution is to take place, small and medium-sized construction companies, which make up 99.9% of the sector, have to take part in it.


EBC adopts its position paper on an SME-friendly BIM

Today the EBC Board approved the position paper of EBC on Building Information Modelling (BIM). With 92% of the EU construction sector made up of micro enterprises, responsible for 80% of the construction industry output, it is imperative that these players are not left behind in the definition and in reaping the benefits of this digitised information management process.
