Content Description

Digitization will permanently alter how buildings are planned, constructed and operated. With the aid of digital Building Information Modelling quality and planning dependability can be improved and costs and risks involved in implementing structures can be diminished.

Interlinking the entire value-creation chain digitally also opens up considerable potential as regards improving energy and resource flows throughout buildings' life-cycle. Pioneering strategies designed to optimize construction processes by means of new digital technologies are being researched and tested in Austria.
