Building information modeling (BIM) implementation is a major change management task, involving a diversity of risk areas. The identification of the challenges and barriers is, therefore, an imperative precondition of this change process. The creation of the document Roadmap for the introduction of BIM aims to diagnose the construction industry to develop a clear understanding of BIM adoption and to form an imperative step of consolidating collective movements towards wider BIM implementation and to provide strategies and recommendations for the construction industry for BIM implementation. The Roadmap’s usually suggesting structured patterns to systematically tackle technology, process and people issues in BIM implementation and require consideration for organizations to progress on the BIM maturity ladder. Practical implications ‐ It paves a solid foundation for organizations to make informed decisions in BIM adaptation within the overall organization structure.
For the purpose of raising the capacities in the construction sector to introduce energy efficiency when constructing energy-efficient buildings, four BIM training programs have been prepared concerning all phases of construction, utilization, and maintenance of the buildings. The training programs have been prepared and supported by BIM Academy, Barcelona, project partner, and consist of:
- 5 days (40 hours) for practitioners (architects, engineers, and technicians)
- 5 days (40 hours) for construction companies and subcontractors
- 15 hours of online training for the policymakers, public institutions, building owners
- 15 hours of online training for the construction industry and the producers of building materials
The training participants will use licensed ACCA software for operating with and applying the acquired knowledge. The trainings are being held in the period of February 2019 and March 2020 (online trainings).
