Webinar: Building Information modelling (BIM) supports digitalization of standards for the Construction sector. First elements on Building Information Modeling (BIM)


15 Feb 2021 14:00 to 16:30





Event Description

The digital transformation of the built environment involves the digitalization of business processes, business data and strategic information. For this transformation to be successful it needs to consider technical, organizational, informational, or human aspects. Due to the amount of multidisciplinary actors, this digitalization also needs to include a structured collaborative environment.
BIM (Building Information Modelling) is an enabler for this digitalization. Information Management using BIM contributes to the strategic positioning of companies to build value. The development of digital technology in the built environment requires consistent information based on enabling standards and coordinated active support and involvement from national standards bodies (NSBs) and other technical committees (TCs). Like any change process, this change needs to be structured and agreed between all actors and stakeholders to mitigate concerns. While the existing standards provides requirements and recommendations on how to undertake information management using BIM, the answers to some questions remain unclear.

For these reasons CEN/TC442 and CCMC (CEN CENELEC Management Center) have decided to collaborate to host a web conference to provide some answers and as well any associated clarifications.

This webinar will present what CEN/TC 442 BIM can do for other TCs and some supporting standards available to contribute to the objective of a digital transformation of standards’ TCs.

Target audience: Secretaries, convenors, and delegates of CEN and CENELEC TCs, but also at national level through secretaries of National mirror committees; all members of National TCs are invited to participate.
