Belfast Met has marked the completion of a £1.25m digital construction qualification project.

Seven European partners were involved with Belfast Met in the BIMcert programme, funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research programme.

The project aims to provide a training and qualification scheme for skills across the European construction chain. It's claimed BIM can offer improved efficiencies for the construction industry in energy, materials and time.

The project ran from March 2018 to October 2019, with a closing event at Titanic Belfast this week.

BIMcert can be used to help manage the energy performance of a building by by reducing the environmental impact of construction.
