Planen-bauen 4.0 was founded in Feb. 2015 by 14 major professional association of the construction industry in Germany to coordinate and accelerate the implementation of BIM. It is a national platform and centre of excellence coordinating BIM research, standardisation and market implementation. Via the members of its share holders planen-bauen 4.0 has also strong support by and access to experts of all kind within the industry. In 2015 planen-bauen 4.0 developed in a joint effort with private and public clients as well as BIM experts from industry and academia a strategic road map for the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure to mandate BIM on all its infrastructure and infrastructure related building projects until 2020. A core concept in this strategy is the use and further development of open data standards as well as transparent definition of data requirement within project procurement processes. The implementation of BIM within in road authorities and public clients on federal and state level will be the main focus of activity within the next years. This also includes setup of advanced education programs for professionals and the development of supporting guidelines and tools. Planen-bauen 4.0 personnel is involved in various national and international standardisation committees and gained strong practical experience in BIM consulting and research on international infrastructure projects.

Royal NL-engineers, Information management Systems Engineering and Asset Management, Daan Alsem

Sept. 20, 2018

Aim is to enhance the information management and information loss at stage-transitions during the life-cycle of a project. NL-engineers see similar issues using Systems Engineering at Asset Management and want to enhance interoperability and information management in the sector together with the stakeholders in a so-called Market-vision meeting. Daan Alsem, projectmanager from Royal HaskoningDHV, present the CEDR-INTERLINK approach using BIM and the existing open BIM standards at Asset Information Management with Linked Data and Semantic Web technology.

IALCCE 2018 Ghent Belgium

Oct. 28, 2018 - Oct. 31, 2018

IALCCE 2018, The Sixth International Symposium on LIfe-Cycle Civil Engineering.

In our contemporary high-level society, civil engineering structures are expected to be designed to meet long-term requirements related to structural safety, robustness, serviceability, durability and sustainability. Life-cycle civil engineering provides the knowledge and tools to accommodate for these requirements and relates to the design, inspection, monitoring, assessment, maintenance and rehabilitation of structures and infrastructures taking into account their lifetime perspective.

The last decades there is a growing awareness of the importance of a life-cycle perspective in civil engineering and challenges exist to tackle the contemporary needs, for example related to the long-term prediction of material behaviour and structural response, the assessment of existing structures, inspection and maintenance strategies, life-cycle optimization, etc. Considering these needs, the objective of the International Association for Life-Cycle Civil Engineering (IALCCE) is to promote international cooperation in this field of expertise.
