New European BIM Summit Day on BIM Standards: Guides, manuals and formats

On Tuesday, June 12, the next European BIM Summit Day will be held; on this occasion, the monographic day will be dedicated to the “BIM Standards: Guides, manuals and formats”. The meeting will run from 11 am to 2 pm and will take place at the ROCA Barcelona Gallery (Joan Güell 211-213, Barcelona)

In recent months different organizations and administrations have presented their novelties, updates and innovations in the BIM world, generating an important volume of documents, guides and manuals with the aim of setting standards in the work of the different professionals in the construction sector.

The present encounter will try to show these advances and novelties taking as a starting point the conclusions of the presentations shown in the last edition of the European BIM Summit 2018.

In this EBS Day we will inform you about the most significant of each of the standardization systems or work organization methodologies in the BIM environments that currently exist.
