Saint Gobain Italia: “BIM libraries contain system solutions that integrate design, performance and comfort”

Countdown to Saie 2016. The company tested the tool in its plant upgrade project

By Paola Pierotti, PPAN


Saie 2016 is stepping on the accelerator of innovation, and in close relation to the top-priority themes on the country’s agenda is offering contributions focused on processes and technologies.


While the building industry has focused on energy improvement and deep renovation in recent years, in 2016 the Bologna show is extending its field of action to include earthquake protection, hydrogeological instability, apartment buildings and suburbs, particularly in the light of the recent earthquake in Amatrice and the launch of the Casa Italia project. BIM is the ideal tool in this context considering the synergies that need to be established in terms of skills and the required levels of performance, a necessary step for the preparatory stage of gaining knowledge of the local area and heritage.


The Bologna building show will have an area dedicated to BIM, although trade associations such as Andil and individual companies like Saint-Gobain Italia will also have an area devoted to Building Information Modelling.
