ptBIM 2018 – Building Information Modelling Portuguese Congress

Técnico - Alameda campus

The 2nd Edition of Building Information Modelling Portuguese Congress will take place on 17th and 18th May, at IST Congress Centre.

The growing importance of digital tools in the construction industry, made possible by Building Information Modeling (BIM) methodologies, is making very relevant changes in the design, construction and management of operations. These digital tools will introduce new paradigms of relationship between the various actors involved in the process and will have a great impact on working methods.

The purpose of the PTBIM Congress is to promote a technical-scientific discussion forum, involving the active participation of the professional and academic communities in the Architecture and Engineering sector. It is intended to emphasize the problems and implementation efforts in the Construction Industry and to strengthen the professionals’ networks of those who incorporate BIM into their activities.

CT197-BIM is coordinated by Organismo de Normalização Setorial at Instituto Superior Técnico (ONS/IST). It´s also the mirror committee of CEN/TC442 and ISO/TC59, and it’s the entity delegated by the Portuguese Quality Institute (IPQ) as responsible for the development of standardisation in the scope of classification systems, information modelling and processes throughout the life cycle of the construction projects.
