International requirements, examples on Integrated BIM

Thursday, 20 of March at KTH, Stockholm

We will present the business value when implementing open BIM standards. The speakers come from Sweden and abroad. International buildingSMART members from Norway, Finland, Holland, Germany, UK and US will participate and show how they use the open BIM standards in their organisations.

Listen to how the United Kingdom government’s requirement on using BIM in both building construction and infrastructure projects already 2016 will influence Sweden and Swedish development towards open BIM standards.

Trafikverket, the Swedish Transport Administration, and Rijkswaterstaat, their corresponding organisation in the Netherlands, influence the development of BIM for infrastructure. In the afternoon one track will present the EU project V-con, Virtual construction for Roads, and results from ongoing projects in several countries.

See how you can get BIM, Building Information Modelling – based on open standards to improve your business processes and collaborate with other companies. For open BIM, IFC is today the most developed and open international standard for integrated BIM.
