Digital technologies can make a decisive contribution to cost truth, cost transparency, efficiency and adherence to deadlines. The better availability of data for all parties involved in the construction project ensures transparency and collaboration.

The use of digital methods is therefore also a central demand of the Reform Commission for the Construction of Major Projects.

The step-by-step plan is intended to lay the foundations for the gradual introduction of BIM in Germany.
