Leaders from Europe’s architecture, engineering and construction industry expressed their support today of the European Parliament’s decision to modernise European public procurement rules by recommending the use of electronic tools such as building information electronic modelling, or BIM, for public works contracts and design contests.
As a result, building and infrastructure projects are created and completed faster, more economically and sustainably.
The adoption of the directive, officially called the European Union Public Procurement Directive (EUPPD) means that all the 28 European Member States may encourage, specify or mandate the use of BIM for publicly funded construction and building projects in the European Union by 2016. The UK, Netherlands, Denmark, Finland and Norway already require the use of BIM for publicly funded building projects.
