The attraction of the EUE (Energizing Urban Ecosystems) research program that focuses on sustainable urban development and the regional innovation ecosystems, services and business models supporting it is growing. At the start of the third season, the number of participants is double that of the previous season. The program aims e.g. to develop and introduce… Continue Reading

Safer construction through BIM

Safer construction through BIM

BIM-based design improves considerably the safety of a building over its life cycle – from the construction phase to the maintenance of the occupied building. When standards and regulations are defined by programs, inspection and design may in the future be automatic at all phases of work, says Research Scientist  Kristiina Sulankivi at VTT Technical… Continue Reading

By means of BIM radical improvements to productivity, quality and safety

The main objective of BIMCON work package was to develop a comprehensive product data management procedure for industrialized construction process that is based on usage of building information model (BIM) for common data management in the supply chains. The general aim was to encourage the construction branch to adopt rapidly ICT in construction supply networks.… Continue Reading

Web technology opens a whole new market for information management

Web technology opens a whole new market for information management

According to latest research, the most practical and productive way to benefit from building information modeling is to combine the process with web technologies based on linked data. Building information modeling and management are no longer considered a process of centralizing all building-related data to a single model but rather a distributed, linked network of… Continue Reading

BIM based management of road networks improves efficiency

BIM based management of road networks improves efficiency

Using Building Information Modelling (BIM) can be divided in three procedures in road maintenance process. First procedure is similar to a typical BIM process when building new infrastructure.  Second one is maintenance sectors’ own model for to handle one maintenance site or even whole road network. The third procedure is to know, how to store… Continue Reading
