In 2015 the Resource Centre for Building Technologies and Innovation (CRTI-B, Centre de Ressources des Technologies et de l’Innovation pour le Bâtiment,) launched the first steps for the development and implementation of a national strategy for BIM. The BIM working groups in Luxembourg are under the guidance of the CRTI-B, which, as a neutral construction platform – has brought together a table of experts made up of different construction actors. The intention was to create a cross-sectoral working group including clients, architects, consulting engineers, contractors, scientific researchers and project managers. The CRTI-B aims to define, document, introduce and keep up to date standards governing construction projects’ contracts.
In view of the great interest in the subject of BIM in Luxembourg, and taking into account the different economic actors involved, different “working sub-groups” have been created to organise the development of BIM related projects more efficiently. To better meet the needs of all construction stakeholders, the CRTI-B launched the digitalbuilding.lu website on July 14, 2017, which will serve as a centralised platform for all matters relating to the digitisation of the construction sector. This website contains several resources including details on classification, training, BIM application and interoperability documents.
