The application of Building Information Modelling (BIM) is widely recognised as a solution to the efficient management of a project’s information over its entire life cycle.
Geospatial Media and Communications launched the GeoBIM Europe conference in 2014. Its aim is highlighting the critical role of geospatial technology in BIM processes within the European construction sector. It shows how aligning geospatial and BIM improves collaboration, efficiency and performance of a building/infrastructure throughout its lifecycle, right from planning and design, to construction, and finally the operational and maintenance phases.
This year edition took place on 24 and 25 November in Amsterdam.
GeoBIM Europe is the leading industry-outreach initiative, which serves as a platform for geospatial community to interact closely with planners, architects, engineers, builders, building owners and operators; and discuss the potential and challenges of geospatial and BIM integration in Europe.
The conference featured over 40 speakers – including EBC – from the Netherlands, United Kingdom, France, Finland, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, United States, Canada and India.
