The digitalization working group of GEFMA - German Facility Management Association - has just published the book "BIM im Immobilienbetrieb" (BIM in real estate operations) in the prestigious Springer Vieweg publishing house. This reference book deals with all facets and issues of the application of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in real estate operations and Facility Management (FM). We are proud that our colleague and Alpha IC partner Marko Opic, as a member of the GEFMA working group "Digitalization" and expert on FM and BIM, co-wrote five of the twelve chapters.

"I particularly like the practical approach of this technical book," says Marko Opić. "This allowed me to incorporate my experience from numerous consulting projects into the texts in a user-oriented way. BIM is a key driver of digitalization in the real estate industry - and thus levers for better cost, quality and sustainability performance."

Prof. Dr. Michael May, book initiator and board member for digitalization at GEFMA, edited the reference book together with Prof. Dr.-Ing. Markus Krämer from the Berlin University of Applied Sciences (HTW) and Maik Schlundt (Dipl.-Inf.(FH), M.Sc. FM).

The more than 320-page print edition "BIM in real estate operations - application, implementation, digitization trends and case studies" incl. eBook is now available at all booksellers at a price of 84.99 euros (ISBN: 978-3-658-36265-2). The publication is also available as an eBook at a price of 66.99 euros (ISBN 978-3-658-36266-9).
