Capítulo español en formación de BuildingSmart International | New Spanish Chapter launched

Three years after the demise of the former Iberian Chapter of buildingSMART a new Spanish Chapter was launched in Madrid on 6th November 2012.

Unlike the previous Chapter a wide range of private enterprises and public authorities were present at the launch to hear from buildingSMART International Secretary Christopher Groome about new developments in openBIM across the world and the opportunities for Spanish firms to get involved.

The Chapter’s contact in Spain is Sergio Muñoz, and the next step will be for the new organisation to apply for affiliation to buildingSMART International.
