2018 Implementation of the BIM Methodology for Public Tenders in Spain

Information obtained from the web www.bimnd.es

In this year 2018 comes into force the directive by which the European Parliament urged its 28 member countries to implement the BIM methodology in all construction projects that were endowed with public funding.

After this directive, in August 2015, from the Ministries of Development, a “BIM Commission” was created, which would be responsible for preparing guidelines to make the use of the BIM mandatory in all publicly-funded bids.

From the Ministry of Public Works, certain dates were established for its entry into force according to the different sectors:

December 17, 2018; mandatory BIM methodology for all building construction projects with public funding.
July 26, 2019: Mandatory BIM methodology for all infrastructure construction projects with public funding.

Directive 2014/24 / EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of February 26, 2014 on public procurement and repealing Directive 2004/18 / EC

In the meeting ?? 2018: BIM, a reality for the engineering sector ??, organized by the Institute Tecniberia and the Professional Union of Engineering Colleges, the owner of Development announced that, before the end of the year, the Commission BIM will bring to light a guide of help directed to the administrations on public licitations in matter of BIM methodology.

Both government entities and private companies are already working to adapt as soon as possible to the BIM (Building Information Modelin) methodology, not only because of its obligation for public bidding, largely for the benefits;

Multidisciplinary work. BIM allows collaborative work through a single platform in which the different agents involved in the construction process (architects, surveyors, engineers ??), can work on the same tool, integrating and sharing information in real time. In this way it is possible to improve the collaboration between clients and designers during the construction phase.
Interference check. Before starting to build we have a complete model with all the information. In this way, we can check if there is a problem of integration between the different elements in a safe and fast way.
Integration of 2D and 3D. This methodology integrates the 2 and 3 interconnected dimensions, improving the vision of the global project and avoiding possible errors.
On the other hand this new way of working allows to automatically generate all the documentation of the project: budgets, planning structures, etc. achieving an increase in productivity and, therefore, saving time and costs.
In addition, through BIM, we can know the energy impact of each of the materials that make up the work. In this way, smart buildings can be created that are increasingly integrated with the environment, sustainable and efficient. Furthermore, at the design level, the platform allows construction projects to be carried out based on energy efficiency, being able to control carbon emissions from the beginning.

In Delineation of Structures, we have decided on this methodology for a long time, with which we have extensive experience and with the best prepared professionals to carry out any of your projects through this methodology.
