Far from exciting speeches, how do you find the deployment of BIM in France? Does it really advance compared to 5 neighboring countries for example?

France has adopted BIM later than its Anglo-Saxon neighbors. The NBTN - Building Digital Transition Plan - and then the BIM 2022 Plan demonstrate a strong desire to accelerate the digital transformation of the Building and Construction sector. France has opted for a strong incentive to implement BIM, without imposing what would be a "BIM suffered." Today, France is among the leading pack in Europe. After the sometimes too good promises, and the first disillusions, we have entered a phase of maturity of implementation of BIM, which we see in contact with projects and through initiatives that Graitec supports as the Competition BIM whose edition 2019 is particularly. The adoption of BIM in France is today less dogmatic and goes through the definition of more realistic objectives. The "BIM chosen" is a chance for France. Its deployment is accelerating because the actors see real benefits.

Our role as a professional is to be a catalyst for this adoption. Assist each organization, regardless of maturity, to set realistic goals for deploying BIM, and to provide them with best practices appropriate to their context. We have named this approach "BIMUp", an innovative methodology integrating all the know-how of the Graitec teams, resulting from hundreds of field projects across all territories. The 8 digital conference at 10 October aims to share this experience.
