MARKET OVERVIEW OF BIM AND CAD SOFTWARE USAGE OF EUROPEAN ARCHITECTS

Digitalisation has majorly changed the construction sector. The impact of digitalisation is especially apparent in the way in which architects design and manage projects. On the one hand, digitalisation of the construction process and technical project management is shown by the growth of Building Information Modelling (BIM) usage among architects. On the other hand, the way they design has moved from paper to using Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software over the past decades.

WILL THE EFFECT OF THE PANDEMIC ON ARCHITECTS’ MEDIA ORIENTATION LAST?

Like many of us, architects are social creatures, and in their line of work, staying up to date with trends and developments is a professional must. In normal times, that means architects receive brand representatives and visit trade fairs relatively often, discussing said trends and developments over a coffee or whatever their preferred beverage may be. But then Corona hit.

EUROPEAN INSTALLERS PREFER FACE-TO-FACE TRAINING BUT EXPECT THAT MORE TRAINING WILL BE DONE ONLINE AFTER THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Installers participating in Q1 2021 of the European Mechanical Installation Monitor, have shown a clear preference for face-to-face training instead of online training. The COVID-19 pandemic, however, has exposed many plumbers and HVAC installers to online training. Consequently, most installers expect that more training will be done online in the future, although they do not find all topics equally suitable for this. Therefore, as part of the European Mechanical Installation Monitor Q1 2021 report, we focused on investigating the training needs of plumbers and HVAC installers. The European Mechanical Installation Monitor is conducted among installers in six countries and is conducted by USP Marketing Consultancy.
