Italferr sets up the 1st BIM Certification System

A new important record is achieved in the era of Building Information Modeling

Italferr, the Italian State Railways’ engineering division, has set up the first “Certification System for the providers of Support Services to Design Teams for the Development of BIM Information Models”.

The System, which is entirely free of charge, is the first one of its kind to be established in Italy for companies that apply the new method and will make it possible to select those which meet the relevant requirements and may be invited to participate in tendering procedures for design support contracts developed with the BIM method.

This new system – said the CEO of Italferr Carlo Carganico – has a twofold aim: increasing the use of BIM in the design process at Italferr, thus helping implement one of the pillars of the 2017 – 2026 Business Plan of FS Italiane Group, and encouraging businesses and the market to invest in the new method, thus fostering the digitisation process set out in the European Digital Agenda.
