The implementation of BIM in the Spanish AEC industry Trace Software International

The implementation of BIM in the Spanish AEC industry

What is the current Spanish situation regarding the implementation of BIM in the Spanish AEC industry? What are the decisions of the Spanish government regarding the digital revolution in the construction industry?

BIM is not yet mandatory in Spain. However, the Spanish construction industry has also been subject to EU Directive 2014/24/UE.  Since 2014, according to this directive, the member states are invited to encourage the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in construction projects financed by EU public funds as of 2016.

In 2015 the Ministerio de Fomento (Ministry of Development) created the “BIM Commission” with the main mission to establish a roadmap for the BIM methodology implementation in Spain. The BIM Committee is made up of five different tasks groups that focus on distinct themes: strategy, people, processes, technology, and international liaison.

While the first group is primarily responsible for the planning and the stipulation of a specific action plan for the implementation of BIM, the second group focuses on the theme of the change of culture and the capacity of public and private staff in the new collaborative scenario. The third group, on the other hand, works on the standardization of processes and on the creation of protocols and standards necessary for the realization of projects that use BIM. The fourth group is dedicated to the technological aspect with the aim of guaranteeing the interoperability and use of the Open BIM. The last group pays attention to the international scenario to revisit the Spanish position compared to the other panoramas.

A strategic timetable for BIM implementation has been set. BIM use is supposed to be mandatory in public construction projects from December 2018 and in infrastructure projects by July 2019. However, we do not speak of real legislation, but rather of guidelines in the implementation path of the BIM methodology in Spain. In fact, the date for the actual approval of the BIM law and standards has been set at 11/06/2018.

The importance of BIM in the construction sector is now consolidated in public opinion. BIM is becoming a global language for the infrastructure and construction sector, enabling greater collaboration and movement of capabilities across borders. BIM refers to a collaborative method of working which is based on the generation and exchange of data between various project parties on the same project.

Architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industries have sought out for a long time to increase productivity and quality, while at the same time decrease costs and project delivery time, hence using BIM gives the best potential in reaching these goals.

elec calc™ BIM  stands out as the unique electrical design software solution responding to the BIM challenges. This is the world’s first calculating software that seamlessly integrates elec calc™-  the electrical equipment used in sizing projects – with different design platforms and architectural 3D models, thanks to its unique IFC standard use approach.

BIM simulates the construction project in a virtual environment.  Just as elec calc™ BIM solution allows you to create a one-line diagram of electrical installation from the BIM model and defining the cable routing (calculating lengths, adding cables as objects).

The key benefit of BIM is its accurate geometrical representation of the parts of a building, in an integrated data environment. Some great features of elec calc™ BIM  include IFC Explorer, your electrical objects are recognized from IFC data and interactions between Explorer, 3D Viewer, and elec calc™ one-line diagram, identifying components in real time between your 3D Viewer and the one-line diagram.
