A prototype of the BIM-based building permit procedure

Estonian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications started analyzing the possibilities for automating the building permit process using BIMA digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. As such it serves as a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life cycle from inception onward.-based workflows. The purpose of the project is to find out the technical requirements for implementing a BIM-based process in EHR (Estonian Building Registry), to specify verifiable claim types, to create a Proof of Concept and User Interaction (UX) mock-ups of the EHR user interface. The project was made in collaboration with a Dutch consulting company Future Insight and was funded by the European Commission Structural Reform Support Program.
