Moving Poland's construction industry into the future with BIM

The BPCC and the British Embassy in Warsaw invite you to a top-level conference aimed at senior decision-makers in public and private sector construction and infrastructure.

The aim is to discuss British experience in the implementation of Building Information Modelling (BIM). Based on case studies of major infrastructure projects and other investments, the conference will show how the mandatory use of BIM benefits UK taxpayers in terms of faster project delivery and lower operational costs. The conference will also look at the main barriers to the implementation of BIM in Poland – institutional, regulatory and skills gaps. The prospect of future iterations of the EU's Public Procurement Directive mandating the use of BIM for all public buildings and infrastructure projects means that the Polish government will at some stage need to adopt it. How to do this quickly and effectively? The UK has many of the answers.

Event coverage

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is the future of construction, yet its implementation (particularly by the public sector) varies enormously from country to country. The UK is a global leader; since 2016, only buildings and infrastructure designed in BIM can be procured by British government departments and agencies. Germany and other countries are following closely – whereas the Polish government currently has no plans to mandate the use of BIM in public projects.
