This webinar took place Wednesday, 3 December 2019.

The digitalisation of the design and construction process of the European built environment is remodelling the way of work inside the whole value chain. The adaptation to this new work environment is a challenge to be faced by all stakeholders across the construction chain, affecting professionals such as architects and engineers, as well as contractors and construction workers. BIM could be regarded as the driving force of this transformation. At the moment, eight European member states (Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Italy, Luxemburg, Spain and United Kingdom) have made the use of BIM mandatory for public works.


For the past two years, the BIMplement team has been developing a BIM based training for white- and blue-collar workers on topics such as ventilation and airtightness.


This interactive panel discussion uncovered the training experiences in each of the 5 countries involved in the project (France, Lithuania, Poland, Spain and the Netherlands). The webinar addressed the impact BIM maturity had on these training experiences, the potential of BIM to improve the construction quality, and last but not least the tools developed by each partner to address the chosen focus of ventilation and airtightness.


Watch this webinar and learn more about the project and the experiences we faced in this exciting time of the digitalisation of the construction industry.


The project welcomes stakeholders to join the debate and suggest ways to overcome the encountered barriers, name best practice examples and help us to succeed.
