BIM-compliant, cooperative and automated planning and control processes on the digital construction site

Duration: Septem 2022 – August 2024

ZIM – Central Innovation Programme for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)


Planning and control processes on construction sites are traditionally characterised by serial process chains. Projects are prepared offsite, necessary data is collected onsite and checked offsite until a decision can be made. This repeatedly leads to interpretation errors, unnecessarily long execution times and thus less efficient business processes - from planning to execution to control. SmartSite lays the foundation for an efficient digital construction site by enabling BIM-compliant, cooperative and automated parallel process design onsite, where the necessary decisions have to be made.
