Pioneering construction skills for collaboration towards sustainable energy and efficient zero energy buildings
- • Improve energy efficiency through the use of BIM: processes, better materials, products and energy sources
- • Engage with the entire construction sector supply chain to raise awareness of how BIM can drive sustainable energy efficiency at all stages of the process.
- • Encourage upskilling to achieve better employability and energy efficiency through a blended training programme.
- • Create clear pathways for SME’s to upskill from any starting point to support sustainable energy efficient construction
- • Develop a European Framework recognised and accredited with BIMcert’s Learning Modules
- • Supply chains manufactures, especially pre-fabrication and modular construction manufactures
- • Design Teams (architects, engineers, etc.)
- • Construction and installation works SMEs and their associations
- • Estates& Facility managers
- • Housing Executives
- • Universities and training centers including teachers, trainers, VET providers

- • Participate in the survey – second stage
- • Follow the Project web site
- • Follow us on social networks
- • Express interest to participate in the pilot group for testing of training models and tools
- • Contact us – Macedonian partner (IECE) contacts:
- • State of the Art– conduction of a survey on industry needs and gaps,
- • BIM communication and education platform design and development
- • Development of training concepts and methodologies, together with training models and tools draft materials for pilot testing
- • Trials and evaluation to be conducted in the first half of 2019,
- • Accreditation, by a widely recognized awarding body,
- • Dissemination and exploitation of project results
- • Increase in the number of skilled construction workers (000 expected followers of the project; 250 SMEs engaged; 2.000 professionals expressing interest to be trained; 1.000 professionals will be upskilled during the project trials and evaluation).
- • Improved collaboration and understanding across different trades and professional groups.
- • Demonstrated reduction in the gap (for at least 10%)between designed and actual energy performance through improved quality of design and construction.
- • Improved energy savings for at least 15% and increased share of renewable energy sources and recovered energy use for at least 5%, in total energy consumption of the building, due to the Project actions.
- • Primary energy savings triggered by the Project: 30,328 GWh/year
- • Renewable energy production triggered by the Project: 2,744 GWh/year
- • Improved market recognition of skills, by a recognized certification scheme.
