The European BIM Summit is an annual international conference on Building Information Modeling (BIM) held in Barcelona, organized by the Col·legi d’Aparelladors, arquitectes tècnics i enginyers d’edificació de Barcelona (CAATEEB), BIM Academy and BuildingSMART Spanish Chapter, with the common objective of spreading good practices in the use of BIM, as well as the sharing of BIM methodologies and international alignment.
An organization that brings together more than 8,000 building professionals and experts in all phases of the cycle that includes from planning to the execution of the works, subsequent maintenance and rehabilitation; always providing value in the planning, project and execution phases, quality control and economic control of the building process.
An organization that arises from the need to transform the professional profiles that intervene in the Construction Sector to make it sustainable and industrialize it. This need prompted WITS Institute to create the BIM division, whose mission is to help disseminate and implement this process through training programs, informative and experiential events..
A non-profit association, part of BuildingSMART International, whose main objective is to promote efficiency in the construction sector through interoperability based on the use of open standards on BIM (Building Information Modeling) to reach new levels in reduction of costs and execution times and increase in quality.
Together, the three are currently working to improve training and knowledge in this field, both in person and online (with AreaBS), of all types of professionals and experts, which represent nearly 55,000 associates nationwide. The importance that this new transversal model of organizing the building process is for the sector both in Europe and in the rest of the world, together with the need for the good practices that are already applied in other countries to be adopted in our environment , make it essential to summon international experts in the field to help us reflect on the change that will entail for the sector and professionals. With a worn-out current model, it is essential to identify opportunities and, most especially, improvements in efficiency and transparency
