Natalia Lasarte (TECNALIA), Project Coordinator of BERTIM, successfully presented BIM - smart, innovative technical tool elaborated within the project's framework - during Digital Tools Day (DTD), in Bordeaux, France, on 23rd October 2018. The particular presentation, entitled "How BIM can ensure quickness, quality and high performance in renovation with timber prefabricated modules" was given in the framework of this event.
Approximately 80 people attended the event devoted to digitalization of the construction sector and gained knowledge on the available tools, reasons to invest in this field and to join some European initiatives on renovation and tools developments.
The conference was focused mainly on two European H2020 projects coordinated by Nobatek/INEF4, both making the most of new BIM related technologies and digital opportunities for more efficient buildings. The event itself was part of the final conference of the H2020 project "Tools for the 21st Century Construction Worksite (BUILT2SPEC)". "Sister" EU projects, - as BERTIM - dedicated to novel solutions in the area of energy efficiency and the using of digital tools – were also invited to present its findings. The message of the conference was clear - among the digital tools, Building Information Modelling (BIM) is the cornerstone to meet the growing technical complexity of the sector, to overcome the fragmentation of the construction process and problems of communication between stakeholders, spot errors before they happen, as well as reduce time and improve quality.
