BIMcert Events

BIMcert closing conference

This industry leading  conference in Titanic Belfast showcased the outputs and successes of the BIMcert project led by Belfast Metropolitan College. With an international line up of speakers from across Europe including Macedonia, Croatia, Denmark this event highlighed how the BIMcert partners have empowered the construction sector to embrace Digital Transformation and have powered change in the Construction Sector to reduce carbon emissions targets.

Digital transformation is impacting all sectors. However to date the construction sector as a whole has been hesitant to accept the digitalisation process. The BIMcert project successfully targeted the entire construction supply chain in order to stimulate demand for sustainable energy skills and to embrace digital transformation using Building Information Modelling as the key tool to drive change.

Paul McCormack, Project Co-ordinator

Acknowledging the success and impact of the BIMcert project with Belfast Met being the first FE College in the UK to win and lead a H2020 project, Belfast Met Director Damian Duffy stated ‘Educating the workforce in digital skills is a key foundation step in stimulating demand, developing and implementing a digital transformation skills roadmap for the Construction Sector. Belfast Met have led the education process enabling participants to share and amplify content online, allowing participants to collaborate digitally and to become impulsive about their sustainable energy skills.’

The conference also examined how the entire energy circle is improving the energy performance in buildings with Dr James Harty, Copenhagen School of Design and Technology and Gordon Sutherland Head of Sector EASME speaking on the Importance of the Energy Performance Buildings Directive and how these directives can be implemented to 2030 and beyond.
