One of the major success factors in building projects is effective collaboration between all parties involved – from planners and designers to those implementing the work. A digitalised approach to construction based on BIM, Building Information Modelling, is therefore one of the most important strategies for future building. In her lecture, BIM expert Ilka May gave an account of the potential of digital processes and technologies, as well as the main impediments to their establishment in Germany. In addition, she ex­plained how designers benefit from BIM and who pays the cost.


Ilka May underlined that digital twins offer particular potential for more fore­sight and a better basis for investment decisions in the construction sector. This led to a lively discussion after the lecture
