The European BIM Summit in Barcelona on 18 & 19 February presented the most interesting experiences and the latest advances within this new work process.
Opening the Summit, EBC explained how to make BIM an SME-friendly tool to avoid the development of standards only driven by the commercial interests of a limited number of players.
The main points were the following:
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is transforming the way buildings are designed to perform throughout their entire life cycle. This is a digital model tool that integrates all the information related to a construction project from its design phase to the management years after the construction.
Over 450 participants from across Europe took part in the Summit; among them there were BIM experts, public administrators, developers, service consultants, material suppliers and, in general, relevant decision-makers for the construction industry.
