ON MARCH 3-5, BATIMAT CONSTRUCTION SUMMIT 2020 EXHIBITION WAS HELD. IN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE SUMMIT A FORUM DEDICATED TO THE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION OF CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY WAS ORGANIZED. IT IS CALLED “DIGITAL ECOSYSTEM IN CONSTRUCTION”. THE FORUM IS LOGIC CONTINUATION OF CONFERENCES DEDICATED TO BIM, WHICH HAVE BEEN ALL OVER THE PREVIOUS YEARS.
This year, the organizers significantly expanded the topic of expert presentations, which were previously limited only by BIM, and also demonstrated the wide possibilities of IT technologies for the industry, the introduction of which can greatly facilitate many technological and business processes.
Information modeling, due to the high level of automation, allows to avoid errors and collisions at the design stage, to accelerate the design and construction processes.
The transition to digital modeling only at the design stage leads to obvious economic efficiency, and the Forum’s task is to discuss and demonstrate with concrete examples what economic effect the transition to BIM can give at all stages of the construction project’s life cycle. Participants in the discussion, including Pavel Lyulin, CEO of SVN, summed up the results that were achieved in previous years and outlined the prospects for introducing BIM into the industry.
Participants discussed the most pressing issues of the implementation and application of BIM technologies in the design, construction and operation of buildings, regulatory and technical regulation of the industry, prospects for the transition to BIM for developers, in addition, experts discussed the use of IT technologies and on-line platforms for effective work and increase attractiveness of the construction site for the end user.
Experts also shared with students specific experience in implementing projects using the latest digital tools.
