BIM will become the standard process for all buildings and is being integrated into public procurement legislation across Europe.
In fact, Directive 2014/24/EU
on Public Procurement clearly expresses the indication to introduce Building Information Modeling within the procurement procedures of the Member States.
The adoption of the directive requires that all member states encourage the use of BIM in their respective countries for projects financed with public funds in the European Union from 2016.
In Italy, the official adoption took place with Decree No. 560
of December 1, 2017, which established the procedures and timing for the gradual introduction of electronic modelling methods and tools for construction and infrastructure.
The entry into force of the decree, however, does not coincide with the mandatory nature of the BIM, which instead begins on January 1, 2019 for works over 100 million euros and then from 2019 to 2025 will be introduced in Italy the obligation for all contracts for new public works.
The measure also indicates the preliminary obligations of the contracting authorities, which they will have to adopt:
1. a staff training plan,
2. a plan for the acquisition or maintenance of hardware and software for the management of decision-making and information processes
3. an organizational act that explains the process of control and management, data managers and conflict management.
