Italferr at the BIM methodology convention held at the Italian Chamber of Deputies

Managing projects digitally with the BIM system (Building Information Modelling) will mean increasing  Italferr's market competitiveness abroad.  Governments everywhere are placing onus on technological prowess for public works and participation in tenders is increasingly subject to using new technology. Europe is second fiddle to none and is also implementing policies and encouraging advanced working methods with a view to improving the quality of works and cutting down on management and implementation costs, the latter being a particularly attractive benefit for public clients.
Italferr was ahead of others in the sector when it used BIM to design buildings. Now, it has turned its hand to using it in infrastructure design work. A combination of using BIM and being able to rely on solid corporate knowledge acquired after decades of striving to improve and staying abreast of developments in its sector has lead to Italferr's success abroad. Over the last few years, it has brought some impressive job orders home, outstripping competition from many great companies specialised in railway, metropolitan and even road design. Italferr first used BIM software in 2013 when it designed the Red Line of the Doha metropolitan in Qatar.
This important theme was broached on 18 February 2016 during the convention held at the Chamber of Deputies “The shift towards digital systems in Europe for the construction sector” also attended by Italferr's Managing Director, Matteo Triglia and the Italian Minister of Infrastructure and Transport, Graziano Delrio.
As a result of its integrated digital management, BIM technology offers many clear advantages: greater efficiency and productivity, fewer mistakes and less downtime both in the design and construction phase, better information sharing, more accurate and consistent monitoring of works, not only during the construction stage but also for management and maintenance operations.
