The development of a strategic plan for the application of ‘Building Information Modelling’ in Greece is an important factor for the creation of durable and sustainable projects, Minister of Infrastructure and Transport Christos Staikouras, said on Thursday during his speech at the 4th “Building Information Modeling” (BIM) Conference, organised by the Technical Chamber of Greece (TEE).

“Through digital simulation in the design and construction of projects, BIM aims to improve the processes of assigning studies, construction and maintenance of projects, preventing mistakes, time and cost overruns, throughout their entire life cycle,” Staikouras underlined.

The Minister of Infrastructure and Transport cited as an example the extensive natural disasters that occurred, recently, in the country, demonstrating the importance of modeling in the design, study, construction and maintenance of projects, but also in ensuring their resilience.

“For example, if there was a BIM model for the bridges, we would know their strength limits and their maintenance needs,” Staikouras stated, pointing out the value of the preparation of the Bridge Register which is also being launched, “as the digitisation of this data will give us give an accurate picture of the structural wealth of our country.”

Staikouras underlined that the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport has taken a leading role in the transition of the construction sector to the digital environment, with a clear vision and specific goals, such as the training programme for engineers in BIM, which was successfully completed.

“The National Strategic Plan and the Road Map for the Implementation of Building Information Modeling in Greece are expected to be submitted for consultation in the near future. It is a comprehensive plan that describes the basic steps, the schedule and the required resources for the implementation of the proposed interventions,” according to the minister.
