The Building Information Modeling (BIM) has been made mandatory for public contracting authorities with the Ministerial Decree 560/2017 for all those projects with a work sum exceeding € 100 million already in 2019. From the 1st of January 2020, the obligation will be extended to all the projects with an amount higher than € 50 million, up to the requirements to call BIM tenders for the construction or rehabilitation for any type of public works starting from the 2025.

Spea Engineering has been following and understanding the evolution of this specific sector with investments in the field of new technologies and the adoption of qualified staff as BIM experts for the information processes digital management for civil constructions according to the standard 11337-7 entered into force on the 13th of December 2018

Danilo Milia, Francesco Rizzelli, Roberto Roncoroni and Giada Tutino passed the exam at the independent certified body ICMQ that certified the knowledge, skill and competence of the professional figures involved in the information management and modeling.

BIM Specialist: the information modeling operator, qualified in particular disciplines (architectural, structural, plant engineering) and specialized in the use of software dedicated to modeling and production of documents for a specific contract.
