BIM-ICE Project


BIM-ICE Project standing for “BIM Integration in Higher and Continuing Education” seeks to accelerate BIM implementation in the field of construction and building design in Finland and Russia. Addressing such topical issues as lack of common terminology in the field and development phase of standardization,  lack of technical know-how and lack of competence in process development, the Project is aimed at improving productivity and quality within the construction industry by developing new training models and increasing the level of education among different target groups.

Target Groups

Students; expert and teachers; professionals; Finnish and Russian construction companies and decision makers.

Expected Results

In the long-term perspective the BIM ICE Project will further sustainable methodological support of embedding BIM in higher, professional and continuing education process by means of:


developing pedagogical approaches to BIM education


creating digital open access platform of collected and produced materials for professionals and decision makers on different levels


continuity in education and development via educating HEI staff in BIM philosophy and technicalities


BIM-ICE a new cross-border project

BIM-ICE is a new cross-border project implemented by LAB University of Applied Sciences (Finland) and Saint Petersburg State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering (Russia). In late 2019, the project proposal was approved for funding within the scope of the South-East Finland – Russia CBC 2014-2020 programme, and the project was launched in April 2020.

companies and organisations

At the time being, we are in the situation that the development in the field of BIM should consider wider educational programmes for both higher and continuing education, process development, standardization development, application development and applicability development.

BIM ICE CBC Project provides an opportunity to develop educational processes required for the ongoing change in the industry and to create an innovative network, governed by the leading BIM-universities cross-border, to benefit whole project area.
