This seminar took place at Messe Frankfurt, during Light + Building.


Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a shared knowledge resource of information for a vast range of professionals -architects, engineers, AEC- involved throughout the building lifecycle, from modelling to management. However, buildings are complex objects to design, construct and maintain, and BIM faces challenges on integrating inhomogeneous data across multiple disciplines and formats: this is where BIM interoperability issue arises.

The diversity of actors and systems involved coupled with the long-life cycle of a building decrease the ability to solve identified problems. In addition to this issue, the heterogeneous nature of applications and software systems used across the construction industry makes the BIM flow of information even more complex.

In this Expert talk, international REHVA experts from academia and industry will tackle the importance and necessity of achieving interoperability in BIM, overviewing challenges and presenting existing solutions.
