Construction today is all about avoiding mistakes, calculating costs almost to the nearest penny, maximising space and tailoring the build to the customer. We build for the future and define sustainable standards for everything we do. The German government wants all buildings in Germany to be carbon-neutral by 2045. Digitalisation and methods such as building information modelling (BIM) enable us to plan systems with sustainability and efficiency in mind, right from the outset, taking the building's infrastructure throughout its life cycle into account.
BIM makes it possible to devise a plan based on a coordinated model of the building, merging and analysing all planning information and data before construction begins. The method also helps us ensure that all parties involved in the build have access to the same information at all times. Through this integrative planning approach and digital networking, we are developing a learning system, which can be adjusted to the requirements of any construction project. This is why all our Viega systems are now BIM-ready.
This shift is also changing how we work at Viega: as an innovation leader in our sector, we are increasingly taking on the role of process driver in digital and sustainable construction. And that's exactly the right thing to do – because we're installing the lifelines for the buildings of tomorrow.
