From initial concept to completion: Software solutions are part and parcel of the construction industry, because they simplify your work, bring cost savings, deliver a fast return on investment, and can be implemented at any time. That makes them a must for efficient projects, especially since digital submission of plans is becoming mandatory in more and more German states in bids for public contracts. Building Information Modeling (BIM) and the expansion of connectivity between different solutions have also long since evolved from a nice-to-have into a must-have. Your benefits: more planning reliability, cost transparency, time savings, and consistent error prevention. Or, in other words, minimized risks – and maximized efficiency. The role of digitalization is even clearer when it comes to smart buildings. As demands on user comfort, building security, sustainability and energy efficiency rise, the more crucial digital solutions and the issue of data security become. Are you looking for answers? Welcome to digitalBAU.
Digitalization sounds big and complex. But what it is primarily is an array of small and practical software solutions that support you in your day-to-day business processes, from arranging meetings and payroll accounting to statutory time recording, and reliable material planning. In short, useful tools that give you more time for your actual work, allowing you to not only successfully master additional projects but to also already prepare your company for tomorrow’s demands today. In addition, digital solutions can help close the skills gap and get young, tech-savvy people interested in construction professions.
By the way: Entries in BIM programs are advantageous when awarding contracts. And Building Information Modeling is also a useful planning and monitoring tool at the digital construction site, and not just during the planning phase. BIM also provides important advantages in building renovation, since all the information on the building, machinery and building components can be saved here, and consulted and updated at any time.

In your day-to-day business you see that digital planning and construction are no longer a vision of the future but normal practice for public bodies and government authorities. In urban development and infrastructure planning toward the smart city, real-time programs and digital city maps are being used more and more frequently. The digitalization of administration is also a shared goal of central, regional and local government. For example, building approval procedures are handled completely digitally, with BIM set to be the standard for transport infrastructure projects from 2020. Archiving and data backup are also all the more important in this regard. How do municipalities additionally benefit from digital processes? Find out at digitalBAU.
Whether you’re a trainee or a student, digitalization of the construction industry opens up whole new opportunities – also in career terms. The better you understand the digital world, the more fields of activity and career opportunities will be available to you. Whether it’s automated workflows or improved decision-making through data analyses, research in the fields of robotics and artificial intelligence is continuously transforming the construction industry. Today, knowledge is no longer transferred just from old to young, but also the other way around, because the next generation is already proficient in digital tools. That means you can get involved successfully right from the start, support companies in the digitalization process, and, in the best case, create new jobs and business models as a result. For the industry in general, that means above all one thing: image change through technological change. Are you ready for the future? Then digitalBAU is your trade fair.
