BIM is a key part of the fourth revolution (digitalisation) of the AEC industry and an enabling tool for a cleaner and more sustainable built environment. This has been recognised by the European commission and a number of H2020-funded projects – including BIMcert – are focused on providing training frameworks and support to upskill the industry.
The BIMcert partners are Belfast Met, CITB, Future Analytics, Technological University Dublin (TU), IST/CERIS Portugal, IECE Macedonia and EIHP Croatia. Here Paul McCormack the BIMcert Programme Manager and Innovation Manager at Belfast Met, gives a summary on how BIM can effectively achieve sustainability and energy efficiency goals and targets, and explains why upskilling the industry is a key requirement.
