BIM-SPEED launches EU BIM for Building Renovation Competition for construction professionals and students

The EU project BIM-SPEED invites architects, engineers, construction professional and students to participate in the “EU BIM for Building Renovation Competition”.

The challenge is to develop a renovation project that applies sustainable strategies that reduces the energy consumption and increases the comfort for the occupants while reducing the duration and cost of the overall renovation process. The multi-disciplinary teams must apply the Building Information Model (BIM) tools and methods developed by the partners, such as the BIM-Speed platform, tools for energy simulation, decision-making process, inhabitant’s involvement, existing building data collection and much more. The competition is free of charge for the participants and divided in two categories: professionals and students enrolled in an academic programme from an accredited educational institution.
