Call for proposals: Support of a common European network aiming at aligning the use of Building Information Modelling in public works Published on: 22/05/2015, Last update: 04/08/2015
The main objective of this call is to develop activities, projects and actions and a common European strategy for the introduction and specification of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in Europe’s public works.
European public works and construction stakeholders face challenges which must be tackled in order to improve their performance:
- structural issues of inefficiencies resulting from miscommunication, poor coordination and errors in a highly-fragmented supply chain;
- information access issues for delivery and operations requirements due to the absence of consistent public procurement demand, custom-built approaches and different standards;
- procurement and legal issues where contractual and procurement methods are incompatible or discourage the adoption of modern digital processes and solutions.
Work undertaken should achieve the consolidation of existing work, specification and a consistent use of this promising digital tool. The initiative could be based on a network which would provide guidance, vision and promote common principles for the introduction of BIM to the stakeholders of public works and the construction sector.
