In the course of the overall economic upswing, European construction industry is expected to grow in 2014, with favorable outlook towards 2016 where all sectors – housing, non-residential construction and civil engineering are expected to experience an expansion in volume. The challenges, however, are in cutting the use of energy and increasingly scarce raw materials.
Aligning Geospatial and BIM technologies and processes to the business goals improves collaboration, efficiency and performance in planning and design phase, during construction, in post-build savings and for ongoing operational management. But there still needs to be awareness and understanding of the differences between geo-information and building information.
Geospatial Media and Communications brings to you a high level discussion forum, GeoBIM Europe 2014 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands that aims to bring together experts from the Geospatial, AEC and Infrastructure industry across the region. It will focus on addressing challenges and opportunities of the Infrastructure sector in Europe.
The primary agenda of the forum is to provide a platform to understand/acknowledge the need for leveraging Geospatial+BIM (Building Information Modelling) technologies in plan, design, build and operate. The said technologies can help answer ‘how’ and ‘why’ the assets are, ‘where’ they are.
In addition, it will showcase solutions by who's who of the industry that can help you gain more accurate, accessible, and actionable insight, which will help you throughout the execution and lifecycle of infrastructure projects.
