The exchange of practices has since the beginning been at the heart of the ToB3 project. On November 13 and 14, the team met the partners of the BIM Game project, supported by the GIP FTLV in Besançon. In a friendly atmosphere, representatives from six European countries were able to discuss BIM and its learning.

Welcome new partners?

The first day took place in the premises of the Hohophop architects’ group, which temporarily occupies a former hospital and gives it another life until it is transformed. Thus, a place of exchange between artists, artisans and micro-entrepreneurs began in the city center of Besançon.

In this permanently reinvented space, Hervé Maillot, coordinator of the ToB3 project, presented potential new partners. A point common to these structures: expertise in the field of the circular economy. As for nationalities, dimensions and function, their heterogeneity indicates that this theme is alive at all scales.

In a second step, the team debated the format of future publications. Finally, the team agreed that a publication would include a problem to be solved, proposals, conditions for success, and examples of existing practices. With this framework, a rewriting work has started on two Italian and French proposals.

A day of exchange with the project BIM Game

The second day was held at the University House of Education. There was a session of the BIM Game project with students from four European countries. The Erasmus + BIM Game project aims to create a training platform for collaboration via BIM. The theme of this test session: build a small demountable building, transportable, consisting of a maximum of durable materials and can have very varied functions. The international teams have taken up the challenge with projects that are all more original than the others. Subsequently, the exchanges between the partners of the six countries present made it possible to forge new links between people who encounter similar problems in Europe.

ToB3 is part of a theme that concerns all European countries met. Disseminating good practices in BIM, eco-construction and the circular economy will be a useful help in transitioning this transition period.
