Presentation of DURA VERMEER & deNiJS BIM-manager - Lex Ransijn - who won the international competition buildingSMART Awards in the nomination "Construction" with the project Pontsteiger Amsterdam (house on the water) - aroused great public interest. According to Lex Ransijn in the Netherlands today almost everyone wants to have projects with BIM-models. BIM models reduce costs, save time, create additional convenience at the construction site. There is not enough space for laying out all these huge drawing sheets, it is much more convenient to use digital pads for this purpose. In addition, BIM-models facilitate the use of modern technologies and materials, and some construction companies resist this. And finally, BIM-models have raised the professional level of construction in the country.
On June 6, the Russian buildingSMART announced a new working group devoted to Infrastructure projects under the leadership of Oleg Pokusaev, Director of the Center for Digital High-Speed Transport Systems at the Russian University of Transport (RUT MIIT).
