Novarc participated in 21st buildingSMART forum
In the construction of buildings we give priority to functionality. The buildings must be as man- and environmentally friendly as possible in the first place, later shaped into aesthetic volume. Novarc is constantly seeking best user experience of a building throughout its life cycle: in addition to aesthetics there is functionality, economy, environmental and energy saving along with overall benefit and satisfaction.
In the process of achieving our goals, Novarc participated in the 21.-st buildingSMART Forum. It took place on Friday, October 27, 2017 at the Ellington Hotel in Berlin. The top-class lectures of international speakers were dedicated to the focal topic “Lifecycle BIM“. Planners, building contractors, large builders and portfolio holders, as well as facility management experts, demonstrated in their presentations the great benefits of the BIM method for sustainability and cost optimization in buildings and facilities – throughout their lifecycle.
The participants collected valuable trend-setting and applicable knowledge from lifecycle BIM.
