The Building Information Modelling situation in Europe today is very interesting. The context is so heterogeneous that the continent acts as a laboratory to study the different projects that can be carried out using the BIM process.
It always starts with a vision of the BIM in Europe and Spain, a start that is essential for Spanish professionals, who can learn the calendar in which the BIM will become mandatory and how the approval of the new Contract Law will affect them.
After the BIMCAT Barcelona Manifesto of the EBS15, signed by 5 administrations, iTeC prepared in 2017 a roadmap to launch the 88 actions necessary for its development in collaboration with 42 entities in the construction sector.
Absolutely all those who are involved in what we call the construction life cycle will be affected. The Agency for Professional Certification is currently certifying profiles that did not exist only a few years ago.Change will be unstoppable
The first big novelty is that the EBS18 changes its location to provide spaces with greater capacity: the AXA Auditorium will welcome 597 visitors in an ideal environment and will have the presence of 6 German speaking countries.
From its origins, the EBS has focused on an aspect never seen in other similar meetings, one of the keys of the BIM, the collaborative processes, and has established permanent links with other events dedicated to construction.
The fourth edition of the European BIM Summit (EBS18) will be held on March 8 and 9, 2018 in the AXA Auditorium, located in the business and commercial center of Illa Diagonal in Barcelona, with the challenge of continuing to be the reference meeting in Europe the most advanced in BIM.
The fourth edition of EBS18 will bring together professionals from 12 countries with a renewed format and the incorporation of very high level and complexity cases.
