GRAPHISOFT hosts EU Committee for Standardization BIM Working Group session
BUDAPEST, October 24, 2017 – The European Committee for Standardization's BIM Working Group is focused on developing a coherent standard for the AEC industry in Europe. The BIM-based standardization will result in increased efficiency as well as huge ecological benefits. Nemetschek Group's GRAPHISOFT, representing Hungary in the CEN Working Group, hosted the session.
The standardization of Building Information Modelling (BIM) is one of the biggest challenges the European AEC industry has yet to solve. Developed countries are implementing architectural standards based on the Open BIM platform aligning design and construction processes in a transparent and effective way. It will increase efficiency and decrease costs, and will contribute to global environmental protection as well.
BIM-based standardization can be a revolutionary solution bringing about an economic and ecological breakthrough. The proposed standard covers architectural planning as well as the entire life cycle of construction projects, where design represents 1-3 percent, construction costs 20-25 percent and operational costs 72-78 percent.
