The EU BIM Task Group, a pan-European collaboration collecting public sector expertise from infrastructure and public estate owners, public clients and policy makers from 21 nations, launched their Handbook for the Introduction of Building Information Modelling by the European Public Sector on 6 July 2017.
The publication encourages the wider introduction of BIM in response to the growing challenges faced by governments across Europe and public clients to stimulate economic growth and competitiveness while delivering value for public money.
In her foreword to the handbook, Elzbieta Bienkowska, EU Commissioner, Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship, and SMEs says “I believe this handbook and its wide use will contribute to an open, competitive and world-leading digital single market for construction and I would like to call for its broadest possible adoption and use. I also would encourage a wider conversation across the public and private sectors for further collective action”.
The Handbook for the Introduction of Building Information Modelling by the European Public Sector can be downloaded from the EU BIM Task Group website at Eubim.eu
