Virtual Construction for Roads (V-Con)
Date du début: 1 oct. 2012, Date de fin: 31 mars 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The Virtual Construction for Roads (V-Con) project aims at improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the National Road Authorities by improving data exchange in the civil infrastructure sector using the Building Information Modelling (BIM) approach. BIM has already been successfully implemented in other sectors. And BIM is a worldwide development. However, the civil infrastructural sector still lags behind. This sector feels no need to invest in standardisation of data exchange formats. The software industry hesitates to develop software for their clients when there is too much uncertainty about the market potential of their products. Without supporting software Road Authorities will not use information standards in their own processes and will not demand the use of the standards from the contractors. V-Con will break out of this circle of an ICT-standstill by defining a first standard, procuring the necessary software and launch a PCP for BIMserver and software tooling.V-Con has two primary objectives. The first is to establish a draft version of a standardised information and data exchange structure. The second is to procure and test software systems in a PCP that comply with this structure. The results will be embedded in the procurement of two large infra projects, one in the Netherlands and one in Sweden.Coordination activities are foreseen: first between the two leading research institutes in this field, TNO from the Netherlands and CSTB from France. Secondly, with the National Road Authorities in the Netherlands (RWS) and Sweden (TV). Thirdly, with the software vendors in the sector. And fourthly with the rest of the civil infrastructural sector. The result will be a draft version of a standard that will be used in the software that will be procured in the CP part of the project. Dissemination of V-cons results will take place in the appropriate networks of these types of organisations
