The objective of this call is to develop activities, projects and actions and a common European strategy for the introduction and specification of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in Europe’s public works.

Priorities and funded actions:

– To contribute to the creation of a digital world-class, open, fair and more competitive European public works and construction sector
– To optimise the full life-cycle of public works
– To improve the efficiency, effectiveness and economy, thus more generally the public value for money in this sector

– Structural issues of inefficiencies resulting from miscommunication, poor coordination and errors in a highly fragmented supply chain
– Information access issues for delivery and operations requirements due to the absence of consistent public procurement demand, custom-built approaches and different standards
– Procurement and legal issues where contractual and procurement methods are incompatible or discouraging to the adoption of modern digital processes and solutions.

Among financed actions
– The elaboration of an inventory / state of play / state of the art
– Alignment and convergence of different public procurement practices and BIM strategies and tools
– Develop a stakeholder engagement and public procurer support strategy
– Elaboration of technical guidelines for different types of public procurement practices
– Elaborate and implement a communication strategy
– Dissemination of good practice in the European Union and beyond
– Cooperation and alignment with other organisations’ BIM activities such as standardisation organisations, research entities, industrial stakeholders, designers, architects
