Our services

In all four axis, the Building Innovation Cluster (BIC) aims to reinforce shared know-how and help companies overcome the challenges related to sustainable construction. BIC offers its members the services described below.

BIC prioritizes activities relating to the its strategic axis. Currently these are as follows:

  1. Business models and financing models relating to sustainable construction and renovation
  2. The technical challenges of renovation
  3. BIM (Building Information Modeling)
  4. Smart Services for building management

We focus our activities on these four axis so that we can optimize our usefulness in these areas. Other topics are also interesting in our field of activity, such as energy production, insulation technologies and construction materials, but we believe that by keeping a focus on our activities we will be able to provide more added value.
