CEEC VISITS CAATEEB IN BARCELONA
At the end of October the delegates of CEEC were received by member organisation Collegi d’Aparelladors, Arquitectes Tècnics i Enginyers d’Edificació de Barcelona (CAATEEB). Besides interesting presentations on BIM on Friday afternoon, the attendees visited an office building project and Camp Nou. Here they were informed on the way BIM is used at the enlargement of the stadion premises. A very special and interesting part of the program was the visit to La Sagrada Familia with an introduction on the construction of the towers of Gaudi’s masterpiece.
CONSULTATION FOR ICMS 2ND EDITION
Since publication in July 2017, the International Construction Measurement Standards (ICMS) have provided a single methodology for reporting, grouping and classifying construction project costs. In response to industry feedback following the publication of the first edition of ICMS, the ICMS Coalition have introduced and are seeking feedback on a second edition which incorporates life cycle costs. The second edition will enable practitioners to classify costs across the whole project life cycle, eliminating inconsistencies and discrepancies when accounting, comparing and predicting project finances.
The consultation closes on 22 March 2019.
