BIM4Ren project: fourth webinar “BIM4Ren tools: BIM bots added-value in energy renovation projects” on 20 May

The Horizon 2020 BIM4Ren project is investigating a wide range of developments on the topic of the exploitation of BIM potential for the energy renovation of existing buildings for the whole construction value chain.

The 4th BIM4Ren webinar will be dedicated to presenting tools and methods to enrich geometric BIM models, as well as to show how to optimize the use of BIM bots in energy renovation projects.

When: May 20th, 2021

Time: 13:00 – 14:00 CEST

Where: ONLINE! Registration is now OPEN HERE!
