On April 14th, BIMtour made two stops in León with the sessions, BIM for Public Administration and University and BIM for professionals and companies. The sessions took place in the School of Engineering of Leon, and were made for councillors, technicians, public administration personnel, students, and for members and associates of professional associations. More than 160 attendees participated in the BIMtour event in Leon to learn about BIM and how to implement it in their organizations and associations.
During the three hour long sessions, the speakers explained what BIM is, gave advice on how to implement it in an east way, spoke of some of the tools available to implement and use BIM, and how BIM and these tools will contribute to transforming the way of projecting, building, and maintaining buildings and infrastructures.
