22 April 2019 – On 9 May, the Technological Institute of Galicia (ITG) will organize a high-level professional event at its headquarters in A Coruña on 9 May to discuss the present and future of BIM (Building Information Modeling).
BIM is a methodology that centralizes all the data from a construction project in a digital data model which is an evolution of the traditional plan-based design systems as it includes geometric information (3D), time information (4D), costs (5D), environmental information (6D) and maintenance information (7D).
In this event, architects, promoters and the administrations of Catalonia, Madrid and Galicia will share their vision and discuss key aspects of this methodology, which has been progressively implemented in other European countries over the past decade, pursuant to the recommendations of the European Directive 2014/24/EU on Public Procurement.
Jorge Torrico, secretary of the es.BIM Commission created in 2015 by the Ministry of Public Works and Transport, and responsible for analyzing how to implement BIM in the sector and use it in public tenders in Spain, will make the first presentation of the morning.
During the morning, companies and experts will analyze the transformation of this sector and discuss several case studies. The presentations will be made by prestigious institutions such as es.BIM, easyBIM, BuildingSmart, C&S Consulting and the Higher Technical School of Architecture of A Coruña. The collaborating entities, the Association of Architects of Galicia (COAG) and the Association of Civil Engineers (CICCP), and this event’s training partner, the Institute of Construction Technology of Catalonia (ITeC), will also share their vision.
In the afternoon, there will be a theoretical/practical workshop limited to 30 attendees, in strict order of registration, where they will learn about project management tools (measuring, budgets, planning, certification) which are interoperable in Open BIM.
