Awarding fireBIM subsidy process

Based on our submitted plan, we as international consortium (Dutch participants: Stam + De Koning, Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), BuildingSmart Benelux and BIM-Connected) have been awarded the subsidy process by ITEA4 for the FireBIM project.

FireBIM aims to harmonize and implement the fire safety codes of participating countries into an open-source, web-based BIM platform for fire safety assessment that facilitates (inter)national fire safety documentation and compliance from the early design stages.

Our expertise: recording fire resistance requirements in an ontology, and then automatically checking 3D models (in IFC) based on the ontology. Our Wistor platform is used to make multiple use cases, user-friendly, possible in the coming years.

This initiative contributes to the United Nations (UN) sustainability goals.
