Training on Building Information Models Integrated with Geographical Information


Both in the public and private sectors, the construction and geospatial (mapping) industry is demanding new approaches for urban planning, asset design and management. In order to reduce costs, environmental impact and carbon footprints, one of the fundamental approaches in this developments is to bring together BIM and GIS technologies. Like this, an increased improvement of the construction processes, asset management, including buildings, roads, and other essential public facilities will be provided. It also helps to create a more sustainable and flexible transportation infrastructure and to create infrastructure investments with a reduced negative social, economic and environmental impact. However, the data integration of these sectors requires high expertise from professionals of both domains. According to surveys within stakeholders, there is a lack of skilled personnel and VET courses addressing the competencies required to achieve BIM/GIS integration.

BIRGIT aims to bridge the gap between supply and demand on these skills by increasing the quality of the existing VET offer by developing new courses. The expected general impact will be the improvement of quality of the VET programs within the partnership and the possibility of using these courses by other training providers as well.

The project will implement different activities:
Investigate the market requirements
Adaptation of existing GIS/BIM training materials from the participating VET providers to different languages and national needs
Development of new courses fro specific skills and competences required by the industry
Assessment and test of the developed courses and related learning outcomes in the context of real training actions conducted by the participating organisation

BIRGIT expects that GIS professionals will recognise the importance and understand the capabilities and information structure of BIM, how to harmonise and use this information in their studies and integrate it in their databases. On the other side, by learning how to use GIS data in their workflows, BIS developers and AEC professionals will achieve greater understanding and access to valuable information to be accessed, managed, and used for decision-making.
