Summary:

Even though Building Information Modelling (BIM) advocates virtual design and sharing of digital information, the construction industry is still flooded with email exchanges, printed 2D drawings and written project descriptions. This poses problems not limited to efficiency, re-work and ultimately cost. Despite attempts at creating industry-wide standards, none sufficiently represent all engineering aspects nor fulfil the semantic web paradigm. This talk will concentrate on the inner workings of the open source 3D Repo version control system, the aim of which is to democratise and BIM-enable the whole construction industry.
