In view of the growth of Building Information Modelling in various EU Member States, in 2015 ACE has established a work group to look at the legal, technical and financial issues surrounding the advent of BIM, develop its policy and engage with work to develop an European (CEN) standard.

The ''BIM IN EUROPE'' Conference presented the results of three years of work of the ACE BIM Work Group, together with interventions by the EU BIM Task Group, CEN Committee and BIM users. The event was organised with the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
