Especially in the times of pandemics, it is important that different building occupants are aware of the invisible correlation between indoor environmental quality (IEQ), personal health and energy efficiency as through such established awareness, we can nudge new behaviours that can lead to a better well-being as more energy efficient buildings.

The 5th Consortium meeting of the BIMplement project was held on September 26 and 27 in Vilnius (Lithuania). At the meeting the progress that each partner is making was shared and special information was given on the trainings that have already been started in several of the participating countries, that are: France, the Netherlands, Poland, Lithuania and Spain.

Topic of the month 'Digitalisation of the Building and Construction sector'.
Improve building energy efficiency is one of the main issues of the BIMplement project. To that end, BIM (Building information modelling) is used as an on-site tool for Blue collar workers to better understand the type of work to be implemented.

The project objectives are to enhance nZEB construction and renovation, while easy up collaboration and up-skilling of stakeholders.
• The focus will be given to two major subjects, that will have a great influence on the nZEB result: ventilation and airtightness.
• BIM modelling and BIM model use will be the essential tools that will allow all stakeholders to collaborate

For quite some time, the need to upskill the construction industry labour force to deliver quality nearly zero-energy buildings (nZEB) and deep energy renovations is quoted as one of the main challenges to the sector nowadays.

Nearly Zero Energy Building (nZEB) construction and renovation need an enhanced systematic approach for the quality control of the entire process. This is the first prerequisite to reduce the gap between designed (predicted) and actual performances of buildings, both in terms of energy efficiency and in indoor environmental quality. The most important part of this enhanced quality control approach is a fully qualified and equipped workforce, capable to implement, execute and perform all the necessary labor actions with a full understanding of the responsibility of
