Open BIM technology

Using Open BIM technology, it is possible to implant a collaborative workflow to develop architecture, engineering and construction projects in an open and coordinated manner amongst all the technical specialists that make up the work team.


The main property of the Open BIM workflow, besides it being one of its main advantages, is that it is based on the use of IFC standard exchange files.

By working with standard formats, there is improved communication amongst users, since these formats can be read by most tools used for project development.

Therefore, the main element of the project lies in the data it is composed of, and not in the programs used to develop it.


Using Open BIM technology, you will be able to develop your projects in a collaborative work environment with all users.

The project begins to take shape progressively, as users make contributions and proposals that solve the different aspect of the project, including those not contemplated initially.

Additionally, a gradual migration to the BIM world is achieved, as users do not need previous training and do not have to modify their working habits to integrate themselves in the Open BIM flow.

Privacy is a platform for the collaborative development of projects in the cloud and, therefore, is designed to share information. This section explains the fundamental aspects of the workflow from the point of view of privacy.
