1st European conference | BIM and energy performance of buildings, 25 June 2018, Brussels, Belgium

1st European conference “BIM and energy performance of buildings”
25 June 2018, 9:00 – 17:00
Brussels – Auditorium Hadewijch


The market uptake of BIM (Building Information Modelling) is rapidly growing in nearly all European countries and one can assume that this trend will continue and even accelerate in the coming years.

In practice, there was until recently in most countries little to no attention for BIM as a support tool for the regulatory assessment of the energy performance of buildings. A smart use of BIM can be a win-win situation for both areas, whereby there surely are still several bottlenecks and challenges ahead of us.

This first conference, organised by INIVE EEIG on behalf of the QUALICHeCK platform, aims to present the status of BIM and opportunities and challenges regarding BIM use for the regulatory assessment of the energy performance of buildings. The aim is also to explore possibilities and challenges for an accelerated interaction/integration.

The conference will cover visions of needs, on-going research and development work as well as demos of already existing solutions and panel discussions.
