The "EU BIM for Building Renovation Competition" aims to get teams together with different backgrounds who are active in the design and construction industry. While multi-disciplinary teams are encouraged, teams where all members have a similar background, like architects or engineers, are also welcomed to participate. The teams are expected to present a building renovation project that applies one of the Building Information Model (BIM) tools and methods developed by the BIM-SPEED partners, on their own or in conjunction with other tools available on the market. The challenge is to develop a renovation project using BIM in a way that results in energy savings for the occupants, improves their comfort while at the same time reducing the duration and cost of the overall renovation process.
The competition is free of charge for the participants and divided into two categories: professionals and students. Both categories include prizes for the three teams that best demonstrate the use of BIM-SPEED tools. For the student category, the team leader should be enrolled in an academic programme from an accredited educational institution.
The professional teams use a renovation design of a residential building project. This project must be under the design phase. The student teams use a renovation design project from the BIM-SPEED demo sites. The file of this project will be provided by the organisers via the BIM-SPEED platform.
