Today, modern technologies and methods of the improvement of the digitization in Germany – e.g. the method of the Building Information Modeling (BIM) – find increased implementation in construction economy and real estate economy. For many years, the research team of the Chair of Construction Management & Economics of the Bergische University of Wuppertal has dealt with the development of those modern technologies and methods. Now these subjects have to be transferred to the market players. With the research project “Building Information Modeling as a Process” the Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development funded a project to develop an information oriented BIM process model. The project obtains all building lifecycle phases from the project initialization and planning, to the procurement and realization as well as the commission, operation & maintenance and recovery/deconstruction. The comprehensive information exchanges between different players will be developed in a network of scientists and various companies. Up from this point the process can be replenished with BIM-Content to create a BIM-target-process. It will be important to develop a most general purpose to include different variations of project organizations and market players. With this way it will be possible to achieve one’s aim to transfer the technology to all real estate and civil construction participants. This research project can be seen as an enabler for succeeding research projects e.g. of separate lifecycle phases or different roles. BIM-Data can be used for e.g. transparent cost expectation, visualization and planning, 3-D building viewing, floor area measurement (IPMS), risk management, technical due diligence/transaction. The developed attempts are absolutely new in Germany. An international comparison of these attempts offers interesting aspects concerning any transference potential. The conference contribution will contain the first results of new drafts for integration of modern technologies and methods in processes for the construction and real estate economy in Germany.
