About 40 professionals are interested in digital models of work management

The Fundación Estatal para la Formación en el Empleo (Fundae) organised, as a partner of Construye 2020+, a workshop on “BIM management, challenge of construction industry 4.0”, in collaboration with the coordinating body of project, Fundación Laboral de la Construcción.

Yesterday, Fundae addressed the new challenges of theConstruction Industry 4.0. The chosen place for this issue was Fundación Laboral de la Construcción at Castile and Leon, and specifically its training centre at Valladolid, as an example of good practice in Building Information Modeling (BIM) application in design and construction process.

In this sense, BIM was defended not as a methodology but as a collaborative system that integrates all agents involved in a project.

The digitalization of sector is an increasingly visible reality, so SMEs (which are 99% of sectoral companies, according to Construction Observatory) must join this trend and must evolve advances.

This conference, which was part of Construye 2020+ activities, had a double purpose: on the one hand, it has to disseminate and to show practical application of BIM in a construction site, to raise awareness of the needed of the digitalisation of the sector; on the other hand, a round table was organised to bring the BIM experience of the Labour Foundation closer to the construction of its centre in Valladolid.

Marco Antonio Pizarro, architect consultant and trainer in BIM methodology, explained the pillars of this management model based on a digital system, and it’s application in the different phases of the project (design-build-maintenance). In this model, the collaboration is the central focus for the new work-flows and the main driver of sectoral digitalization.
