Nearly Zero Energy Building (nZEB) construction and renovation need an enhanced systematic approach for the quality control of the entire process. This is the first prerequisite to reduce the gap between designed (predicted) and actual performances of buildings, both in terms of energy efficiency and in indoor environmental quality. The most important part of this enhanced quality control approach is a fully qualified and equipped workforce, capable to implement, execute and perform all the necessary labor actions with a full understanding of the responsibility of

Environmental laws have a huge impact on our life. They improve water and air quality, they protect nature, and they encourage recycling and waste management. But to really make an appreciable difference, these EU laws must be implemented in full.   In March 2019, the European Commission will publish a set of reports on the state of implementation of environmental laws in Europe: the Environmental Implementation Review.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process involving generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places, which can be exchanged or networked to support decision-making in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) sector. BIM is a relatively new technology in an industry typically slow to adopt changes, especially in Portugal. The present paper aims to frame the international implementation of BIM in order to propose a roadmap to spread the use of BIM methodologies in Portugal in the next decade.

This document is the position paper of the European Builders Confederation (EBC) on the implementation of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in Europe. The paper states that, with 92% of the EU construction sector made up of micro enterprises, responsible for 80% of the construction industry output, it is imperative that these players are not left behind in the definition and in reaping the benefits of this digitised information management process.

The Energy Efficiency Directive places energy savings requirements on EU countries' buildings. This includes making central government buildings more energy efficient and requiring EU countries to establish national plans for renovating overall building stock. DG Energy published the submitted national reports and policy documents showing the implementation of obligations concerning buildings energy efficiency under the EED.
