As part of our aim to promote the sharing of knowledge between the UK and Poland, from its inception in 2008, we have been running a project called ‘BIM for Poland’, promoting the use of BIM technology in Poland. BIM (Building Information Modelling) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct and manage buildings and infrastructure.
Within the remit of our ‘BIM for Poland’ project we are able to utilise our knowledge and information acquired during the realisation of projects in the UK, promoting BIM technology and its uses in Poland. Because Great Britain is the European leader in the integration of BIM, sharing British know-how allows for the use of tried and tested methods in construction projects being carried out in Poland.
The aims of the project
- The promotion of knowledge and use of BIM technology in Poland.
- Working in accordance with governmental policy with the aim of implementation of legal solutions allowing for the use of BIM in practice.
- Provision of training for BIM practitioners. Know-how transfer to Poland.
- Demonstration of the use of BIM on actual projects e.g. in the BIM4POSK project.
BIM for Poland activities:
- Organisation of two BIM international conferences; “BIM for Poland – risks and challenges”
- Presentation of BIM technology at multiple meetings with Polish partners.
- Cooperation with Polish Organisations incl. Warsaw Polytechnic, Cracow Polytechnic, Polish Academy of Building Engineers, BIM Klaster.
- Participation in Polish Construction conferences.
