BATIMAT, taking place from 2nd to 6th November 2015 at Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre, will address the major challenges facing the construction industry, in particular the digital revolution which affects all sectors and trades.
The aim is to show visitors that digital tools offer concrete solutions that can not only lead to successful new-build and renovation projects but also significantly reduce maintenance and operating costs throughout the lifecycle of the building and beyond, when it comes to redevelopment.
In France, whilst the government is planning to make use of BIM and make digital modelling compulsory in all public work contracts, only 14% of architects are already using it and 26% are preparing to do so. Approximately 10% of artisans say they have used it, unlike those in other European countries such as Norway and the UK.
As part of our mission to promote the transition to digital in the construction industry, BATIMAT will feature a dedicated digital technology showcase: The Building of the Future (Hall 5B).
In this area, technological developments and the new solutions that the digital revolution brings to the construction sector will be shown as relevant in different industry segments. In addition, digital technology will be highlighted in all the exhibition halls, not least in the programme of talks, of which digitisation in the construction industry is one of the four main themes.
The Building of the Future area will showcase new solutions and prototypes destined to become tomorrow’s standards in the construction industry.
Conceived under the patronage of the Digital Transition in Construction Plan (PTNB), its aim is to inform visitors of the digital standards that will come into force in 2019 and give professionals a preview of the future, showing them how digital technology will affect the construction industry in 2025. It will recreate a real visitor itinerary, taking a market and sector- orientated approach, with emphasis on the solutions available to the industry and, ultimately, the end user.
The 330 square metre space will be organised in several areas:
The Building of the Future area will also host a contest open to students and professionals, in partnership with Abvent, Autodesk and Nemetschek Allplan. Participants are encouraged to think about their ideas before the show and give free rein to their creativity in coming up with design ideas for the building of the future. All the projects will be displayed in the Building of the Future area and brought to the attention of our media partners and the trade press. Visitors will vote for their favourite project to determine a daily winner.
At the close of the exhibition, a jury of experts will meet to decide the overall winner and prizes will be awarded the same afternoon. All participants, whether they are shortlisted or ultimately win the competition, will have a real opportunity to demonstrate their creativity and know-how, and benefit from a high-profile media event to launch their future career.
