Dr. Judit Kimpian, Chair of ACE Sustainability work group

The ACE brought together architects and professionals of the built environment for a two­ hour debate on Level(s) : What is the potential of Level(s) to support sustainable architectural quality? What is the first feedback from pilots? What amendments are needed to achieve a broader uptake?
A study commissioned by the ACE, summarising a holistic, architectural perspective of Level(s) was presented on this occasion.

Amandine De Coster-Lacourt, Project Advisor at EASME

This session brought together experiences from four Horizon 2020 projects (BIMplement, BIMCertBIMeet, Net­UBIEP) working with BIM as a training tool and developing qualification frameworks in order to deliver a high quality performing built result. Themes such as indoor environmental quality (IEQ) and building performance are the focus of the developed trainings.
