BIM 2050

The second stage «2020-2030»: what to expect?

We are gradually approaching to the second stage. The planned concepts will be actively implemented within a year. What should happen during this time:

  • The principles of the previous stage are still valid, but communication and cooperation are increased.
  • Flexible and adaptive learning is introduced.
  • Multidisciplinary knowledge is already in action.
  • Reduced time for training courses.
  • The transition to the modular education of additional disciplines is expected. As a result, students will choose disciplines which, to their mind, fit their future career.
  • Teaching guidelines will change: the priority is to teach how to understand processes and interconnections.
  • Hybrid construction skills are used: integrated knowledge in the fields of science, engineering, engineering, arts, mathematics and pedagogy.
  • Employees will change their qualification. The new generation of professionals has grown: they understand information and the process of its transfer.
  • The value of computational and analytical skills for analyzing data from virtual information sources for developing smart cities is growing.
  • The smart cities are emerging.
  • The close interaction of web technologies, the Internet of things and construction.


The third stage «2030—2040»: the active integration.

  • The large-scale application of digital information throughout the life cycle of the building for the entire life cycle of a building.
  • The continuation of the educational trends of previous stages.
  • The implementing of experts in digital technology and industry.
  • Attention to system networks and data analytics. The integrated studies will be in one community, where students will participate in program design and the use of data. Instead, institutional studies will be temporary.
  • There is a priority for professionals who can handle a lot of information and quickly make global decisions.
  • The large-scale application of design robotics.
  • Standalone robotics
  • The production of biological materials for construction, which will become a source of energy for building. A technological breakthrough is expected in this area. Integration with synthetic biology, biomechanics, regenerative medicine.


The fourth stage «2040—2050»: the new dimension

  • Using the algorithms, a large quantities of data and technological platforms.
  • Young professionals will use data from various sources through statistical methods and analytics to provides their rapid use in practice.
  • Algorithms will be developed with open source on the forums. Consequently, creation of the necessary assets is fully automated. Instead, there will be a need for specialists who will verify automated information.
  • The active development of smart cities as a global integrated economic structure.


  • Teaching around the clock, that is, students on educational platforms will be able to learn when they are comfortable.
  • In order to provide access to learning, there will be certification and research centers.
  • It is at this stage that the demand for labor professions will be reduced by 50%.
  • The orientation on the reconstruction, maintenance and operation of existing buildings.
  • Increasing automated assembly and digital production.
  • Further development of digital systems for creating new intelligent materials.
  • Cybersecurity

Every year, the construction industry it never ceases to amaze. Due to the development of the BIM 2050 group the sphere of construction is confidently developing. We already see significant achievements and looking forward to further.

What does the BIM 2050 group predict: Are you ready?

Specialists from the BIM 2050 group offer a vision of the future in 2050. In particular, what innovative technology of construction will exist, how future professionals will be teach.

75% of the nearest future innovations are still to be invented. Problems that will have to be solved are not yet known. Members of the BIM 2050 group emphasize that education, skills and abilities should be the foundation. Therefore, they invited professionals and workers to move beyond traditional training courses. How to prepare future specialists for implementing high-tech construction?

We’ll tell you about the main trends predicted by the BIM 2050 group:

  • continuous education

Future experts should have additional knowledge. This will help them fulfil their tasks better. Consequently, a new generation of construction professionals will learn throughout their life. They will be able to correctly apply data from different sources.

  • innovative education

The views on innovative education will be based on consolidation, cultural integration and adaptation to advanced technological processes.

  • disturbance professions

Construction will become more precise, therefore, it will require intellectual skills. Modular construction will reduce the need for physical labour, and hence labour force. Thus, the skills of these specialists should be flexible and related to scientific knowledge.

  • adaptation

Companies need to adapt quickly to radical changes and ask themselves: «Do I develop sufficiently fast enough to implement new, complex adaptations?»

  • growth of unemployment

It is forecasted that the need for labour force will be reduced by at least 50%. Instead, there is a growing need for digital design and information management.

  • consolidation

It involves merging designers, builders and customers into one network.

  • the Space tourism

Construction on other planets. Are you ready for this?

  • the new laws

The laws of physics for calculating power will also change, and new quantum ones will appear.

  • supply market changed.

Buying materials will be carried out instantly. This will change the paradigm of buying building materials and partnerships between suppliers. New forms of contracts and insurance will be required.

Rapid changes in the new technologies will change the course of innovative movements. The development of culture will enable a digital integration approach and have a positive impact on the environment.

The BIM 2050 group: Mission and Tasks

In 2010, the United Nations was concerned with the sociological forecast that by 2050 the population will grow up to 10 billion. This is 20% more than now. Accordingly, the demand for real estate will increase by the same percentage. In addition, the number of urban population will grow: about 70% will live in cities. Thus, the construction industry (architectural, design) will receive a number of new missions and tasks. These areas will meet industrial needs of the population. Large-scale construction will be required greatly in the future: the urban population will grow, existing buildings will require either reconstruction or demolition and the construction of new ones.

Why is BIM in the foundation? This method has been successfully used in automobile and ship construction for long, and recently it was also adapted to the construction of buildings.

This computer digital method can make building faster, safer, more economical, more environmentally friendly, and therefore is better. BIM can solve some future industrial problems as well as it will help to identify and eliminate errors during the planning process. In practice, this model will cover all aspects of the building, including waste management, resources, fire safety. The obtained data will be convenient to use throughout the life cycle of the building.

The BIM 2050 group has set a number of fundamental tasks. Here are the main ones:

  • to develop a culture that will allow the use of digital integrated method;
  • implement a digital reform that will have a positive impact on the environment;

The BIM 2050 group work in the following areas to accomplish these tasks:

  • education;
  • abilities and skills;
  • technologies;
  • processes;
  • cultural integration.

The group also feals with the risks and challenges the world faces due to innovations. There is a certain appeal to construction companies to pay attention to the problems raised and to take them into account in their activities.

BIM 2050: Building as forward-looking future

Have you ever wondered what the construction industry will look like in 10, 20, 30 years?
How will our digital future be integrated? These issues are relevant, not only in terms of curiosity, but also if global problems.To predict the technological future is difficult and very responsible, but on the basis of trends, its changes can be partially foreseen for several decades.
