IDP LEADS THE R&D PROJECT FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE CONSTRUCTION SAFETY THRU BIM TECHNOLOGY

The Secretary of State for Investigation, Development and Innovation of the Economy and Competitively Ministry of the Spanish Government, under the “State Program for Investigation, Development and Innovation focused to the challenges of the 2013-2016 technical research and innovation plan” has awarded the concession of US$ 950.000.- to the consortium composed by Vías y Construcciones, Eurecat, Impemer and IDP Engineering Group, for the development of the R&D project for the safety improvement at the building and infrastructures construction stages thru BIM methodology.

The project, called SEE AND CONTROL CONSTRUCTION SAFETY, will provide a new model that will allow construction companies to manage the risks prevention at the construction spots in a very different way, using the new technologies such as the BIM technology.

The project will develop an informative control center of the PRL as a tool for the prevention of work risks which allows to manage the safety measures by a sensors network and a continuous monitoring of the activities, workers and machines at the workplaces that will be able to interact with the BIM planning of the building, proportioning higher safety levels for the workers and to reduce the accidents at the workplaces.

IDP consolidates its R+D department after developing research projects financed by the European Union in the last four years like the I-PAN project – Innovative Popular Low Density Structural Panel, the DOF project – District of the Future, and three projects funded by the Horizon 2020 program: HERMES project, METGROW + project and INTERMODEL project.
