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 EBS19 maintains its new location to provide spaces with greater capacity: the AXA Auditorium will welcome nearly 800 visitors in an ideal environment and will have the presence of Finland and the Scandinavian 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 fifth edition of the European BIM Summit (EBS19) will be held on April 11 and 12, 2019 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 first day of the contest is open to the local public in general and the latest technical opportunities are presented with the BIM Experience, to which is added the BIM4Students, a space dedicated to future professionals in the sector.
On the second and third days, the summit opens up to the international public where the BIM situation in Europe and in the world is analyzed. The first day of the EBS19, under the title BIM Presente, will be dedicated to BIM applications in the countries that have advanced the most in the world, the Nordic countries, with Finland as the leading country. It will delve into topics such as services and practical methodologies aimed at maintaining and managing the built heritage or the role of the Facility
