Easy-to-use BIM tools for collaborative construction energy renovation works: new Horizon 2020 project BIM4REN

The construction industry is among the least digitalised industries of the EU economy, while also being responsible for about 40% of final energy consumption and generates 36% of greenhouse gases in Europe. In this context, the EU-funded project BIM4REN, gathering 23 construction stakeholders under the lead of French RTO Nobatek/INEF4, aims at developing user-friendly BIM tools and services in the field of energy renovation of existing buildings.
