"Let's talk digital!" say our Belgian colleagues
The annual Belgian Construction Forum took place last week in Brussels and offered a very convincing programme! This year, the Construction Confederation chose the very actual theme of digitalisation in the construction sector. Supported by a series of contractors' feedbacks from their own experience, the Confederation's main message was that in particular the transition to BIM (Building Information Modeling) is an opportunity to be seized right now by construction companies of all sizes.
BIM represents altogether new opportunities and challenges for contractors - in terms of costs, reskilling, equipment, legal aspects, etc. - but the Confederation was very clear on this: the role of professional federations is to help their members to successfully adapt to digitalisation.
FIEC chose this same empowering approach when setting up a working group dedicated to BIM last summer!
