Who we are

The European BIM Summit is an international congress about Building Information Modelling (BIM) whose attendance-based version is held in Barcelona.

It was started in 2015 as a forum of debate on BIM, intended to promote a more efficient, collaborative, modern construction sector, respectful in its use of public, private and natural resources.

Organised by the Col·legi d’Aparelladors, Arquitectes Tècnics i Enginyers d’Edificació de Barcelona (CAATEEB), the aim is to disseminate good practice in the use of BIM, to share work methodologies and promote international alignment in the construction sector.

CAATEB has always opted for the BIM methodology, being a pioneer in the organization of an international congress of this magnitude, as well as in the training of BIM professionals, through innovation and technical skills.



Col·legi d’Aparelladors, arquitectes tècnics i enginyers d’edificació de Barcelona (CAATEB) was built in 1940 and currently integrates a professional collective formed by more than 7,200 riggers, technical architects and building engineers. Its members are technical experts in all phases of the building cycle, from the planning to the execution of the works, their maintenance and rehabilitation.

CAATEB represents the collective before society and works as a service entity to provide it with the tools for its professional and technical excellence. He has been a pioneer in the diffusion and applications of BIM technology among professionals, as well as in training with the Postgraduate of BIM Manager, which has fifteen promotions.
