Built2Spec (Built to specifications) is an EU-funded project carried out by 20 European partners. The project aims to revolutionise construction practices by introducing a new set of breakthrough technological advances for self-inspection and quality assurance to the construction site that will be put into the hands of construction professionals to help meeting EU energy efficiency targets, new build standards and related policy goals.

A new book has been presented and seeks to take stock of the BIM with the help of some of the leading experts from all over Italy. Its aim consists in understanding what the BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING is, how it can be applied, which advantages it gives, what are its interactions with other advanced tools.
The book was produced with the support of STR, an established brand for over 30 years in the field of construction management software, recently joined the group TeamSystem.

A process, called Building Information Modelling (BIM), is used by architects and building engineers to manage large data sets required for implementing building components during construction.

Renovations of entire districts, designed to reach near zero-energy consumption, need to be replicable if they are to be widely adopted The overall building stock represents about 40% of the EU’s energy consumption. It also produces about 36% of its total CO2 emissions. Besides, new buildings only account for 1% to 1.5% of the building stock. This means that renovation of existing buildings could be relevant for energy saving and greenhouse gases reduction.

Building projects require processing and communication of large amounts of complex data. Now, software solutions make it possible to retrieve details of a given project at any time.
The building sector has traditionally been fragmented. Many different actors are involved at different stages, from the design to the performance monitoring stage. They typically work separately at different times of the development of the building and rarely collaborate. The trouble is that it is not standard practice to perform overall simulations of the project before it starts.
