White Paper: Building Information Modeling

November 2019 | Construction

The construction industry has been booming for years. It currently accounts for 9 percent of the EU's gross domestic product. But the industry still has plenty of room for improvement, because compared to other sectors, such as manufacturing, the construction industry is inefficient and not very productive. Above all, digital transformation is needed. A first step towards digitalization in the construction industry is Building Information Modelling (BIM). However, the full potential of BIM is still underestimated in the industry. This whitepaper shows the relevance of the data model for the entire life cycle of a building and provides assistance for a successful start with the intelligent digital building twin.
