The original goal of the BIMSWARM project was to achieve process optimisation along the construction industry value chain. The BIMSWARM platform has now been successfully launched following a three-and-a-half-year development project led by planen-bauen 4.0 and adesso. BIMSWARM is a cross-market, vendor-neutral platform that acts as a facilitator of the digital transformation in the construction industry and is a cornerstone of successful collaboration and efficient building information modelling (BIM) processes in the planning, construction and operation of buildings.
Through its state-of-the-art BIM module, the BIMSWARM platform provides a solution to the problems associated with incompatible IT applications and services when planning, executing and managing construction projects. BIMSWARM delivers information on software, services and data to all parties involved in construction projects using open-source standards. The platform’s marketplace function offers users a wide range of applications that are certified according to industry standards and are tailored to intercompany collaboration. Phase 1 of BIMSWARM already includes more than 150 applications from a variety of developers. Further expansion is planned on a step-by-step basis.
