The congress GeoBIM Europe 2016 gathered participants from infrastructure, engineering and administration fields to talk about the fusion of the geo-spatial technology and the BIM technology to solve infrastructure problems in Europe, also stressing the technology’s applications for regional and world-wide development.
IDP presented in the GeoBIM international congress the company’s breakthroughs in this innovative field, taking advantage of the R+D project INTERMODEL EU first results, which it coordinates, as well as the CIM project’s results, carried out for the Sant Cugat City Council and which has integrated the project Future Cities Pilot 1 of the OGC.
R+D Manager at IDP, Eduardo Loscos did the presentation and later took part in the experts board jointly with Herman Winkels, BIM Programme Manager of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructures and Environment, Väino Tarandi, professor at the Rolay Intitute of Technology of Sweden (KTH), Guido Sabatini of the European Builders Confederation and Hans Viehmann, EMEA Product Manager at ORACLE. The board was coordinated by Ignasi Pérez Arnal of BIM Academy.
The INTERMODEL Project is a Research & Development Project, under the Mobility for Growth call (MG-8.4a-2015) of the Horizon 2020 programme, which aims to develop an ICT methodology and tools to allow an advanced simulation of logistic intermodal railway platform models in order to give support in tasks related with design and operational phases.
In the case of CIM-FCP1 developed in an experimental way in Sant Cugat, the goal is to implement BIM methodology in the cities to be able to provide local administration with a management single model where BIM GIS is integrated with their respective maintenance services. This tool can also be developed in order to control aspects such as the energy production of its assets and the energy demand both from public buildings, infrastructures as well as commercial and residential buildings. In addition, it can also integrate in a Variable Data way all those implementations in IoT that already form the concept of Smart City into a single model which is permanently updated.
