Wavin highlights some of the pains and gains of BIM adoption in the EU

BIM adoption is a hot topic, not just for Wavin, but for anyone who uses BIM modelling in their business. Architects, engineers, construction managers and BIM modellers are all trying to use the best tools to accomplish their work easily, quickly, accurately and cost-effectively.

In countries like Italy and Poland, not so much. So what are some of the pains and gains that are impacting BIM adoption in Europe? Let’s find out…

10 tips on how to reduce urban heat stress

June 23, 2017

Wavin is a serious influencer in the movement towards urban climate resilience and so we’ve put together some tips on how to reduce heat stress in cities and towns across the continent.

June 20, 2017

They say that opposites attract. And new, sustainable urban design in cities – like the northern German town of Wolfsburg – is proof positive that when the worlds of aesthetics and functionality collide, they form a synergy that is influenced by the human experience.

That is why cities across the continent are looking for unique solutions to mitigate the problem, while at the same time embracing nature, beauty and sustainable design. This is the tale of the Wolfsburg project – a story in which Wavin plays a key role in bridging the gap between beauty and function.
