The TECH-Lab / BIM-Lab is available to students and offers a variety of software and hardware resources to develop and enhance their Building Information Modeling (BIM) skills. Students have access to leading BIM software packages in as-built capture, modelling, model checking, project platforms (CDE), construction process simulation, cost management, building documentation, etc., enabling them to create, analyze and optimize complex building models.

In addition, the laboratory has powerful computer workstations equipped with the latest hardware to carry out computationally intensive BIM applications and simulations. Virtual reality headsets offer students the opportunity to explore and review their BIM models in immersive 3D environments, leading to a better understanding of spatial relationships. In addition, 3D printers are available to create physical models from the digital designs, giving students a hands-on experience of turning their ideas into reality.

Furthermore, 3D laser scanners and drones are part of the BIM Lab's equipment. 3D laser scanners enable students to carry out precise and detailed surveys of existing buildings and terrain, while drones provide an efficient way to take aerial photographs of construction sites and terrain. These complementary technologies allow students to gain further practical experience and broaden their understanding of the application of BIM in real construction projects.

With access to this diverse range of software and hardware equipment, the BIM Lab provides students with a comprehensive learning environment in which they can apply their theoretical knowledge, develop their skills and prepare for a successful career in digital construction.
