BIM4REN is a European funded research project involving 23 European partners. Its general objective is to help improving the low productivity rate of the European construction sector in the market segment of energy renovation. By innovating and allowing every kind of construction actor to easily use novel and adequate BIM based digital tools, the project aims to overcome current barriers in culture, knowledge, tradition, affordability and opportunity that hinder the access to the digital revolution.

With 3 million enterprises and 18 million workers, the construction industry represents around 9% of the European Union GDP. However, the sector is among the least digitalised industries of the European economy. The construction industry is also responsible for about 40% of final energy consumption in the EU and generates 36% of greenhouse gases in Europe.

Ninety percent of the existing building stock in Europe was built before 1990. These buildings are in urgent need for a significant improvement of energy-efficiency through renovation.
State-of-the-art renovation solutions are available, but costly and lengthy renovation processes and incomprehensible technical complexities hinder the achievement of a wide impact at a European scale.
