GIS BIM International Summer School

Training objectives of the Course

The Summer School aims to create a training course focused on the acquisition of knowledge about the opportunities, principles and advantages related to the management and organization of workflows based on ICT, with a specific focus on GIS-BIM integrated methodologies and tools, allowing the process development in digital scenarios.

Methodological solutions for energy-friendly and age-friendly approaches related to the built environment will be explored.


Course aim

The Course provides the ability to operate within an integrated BIM & GIS process, approaching critically to the multidisciplinary process, with a good capacity to read BIM models and interacting with GIS in the construction environment. It provides the acquisition of modeling skills, as well as principles and application methods of integrated management. Examples of application will focus on projects development with age-friendly and energy-friendly criteria.

Field visits to concrete works and best practices will complete the experience.


  1. Integrated management processes for an innovative sustainable approach to the existing and heritage building stock.
  2. Implementation and management of tools and Information Communication Technologies in quality monitoring.
  3. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and integration methodologies with Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools.
  4. Digital methodologies in the construction process for an efficient and multi-dimensional project and workflow management.
  5. Analysis of integrated models and use-case studies within a multi-scale approach in planning and design processes.
  6. On field activities and thematic visits to construction sites of national relevance.
