We are dri­ving digitalisation

The right soft­ware sup­ports users throughout the ent­i­re life cycle of a buil­ding — from design and con­struc­tion to ope­ra­ti­on and demo­li­ti­on. It makes a las­ting con­tri­bu­ti­on to ensu­ring that they can work in a struc­tu­red man­ner, avoid errors and meet dead­lines and cost tar­gets. The BVBS Bun­des­ver­band Soft­ware und Digi­ta­li­sie­rung im Bau­we­sen e. V. is the industry’s think tank. We pool expert know­ledge and now bring tog­e­ther over 120 lea­ding soft­ware and IT com­pa­nies from the ent­i­re con­struc­tion indus­try. Sin­ce the asso­cia­ti­on was foun­ded in Sep­tem­ber 1993, we have been pur­suing a com­mon goal: to streng­t­hen the per­for­mance and inno­va­ti­ve power of the con­struc­tion indus­try through end-to-end digi­ta­li­sa­ti­on and auto­ma­ti­on in the con­struc­tion sector.

Our tasks

As an asso­cia­ti­on, the ongo­ing deve­lo­p­ment of gene­ral­ly app­li­ca­ble stan­dards and norms is just as important to us as our invol­ve­ment in poli­ti­cal deve­lo­p­ments rela­ting to the con­struc­tion sec­tor. We pro­mo­te the exchan­ge of infor­ma­ti­on among all mar­ket par­ti­ci­pants and are signi­fi­cant­ly invol­ved in the orga­ni­sa­ti­on of con­struc­tion tra­de fairs for the IT sec­tor. We focus on the deve­lo­p­ment of qua­li­ty stan­dards, their cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on and the joint deve­lo­p­ment of data stan­dards and data exchan­ge procedures.

Our mem­bers

BVBS mem­bers are soft­ware com­pa­nies and IT ser­vice pro­vi­ders. They repre­sent the fiel­ds of archi­tec­tu­re, civil engi­nee­ring, spe­cia­li­sed plan­ning, con­struc­tion, manu­fac­tu­ring and IT services.

What our mem­bers say

A Mem­bers­hip of the BVBS pays off. Read what moti­va­ted our mem­bers to join our association:

„It was a mat­ter of cour­se for us to be a mem­ber of the BVBS in order to uti­li­se the bene­fits that ari­se for our customers.”

Dipl. Ing. Tho­mas Glaser/Dipl. Ing Rein­hard Schley

“We see mem­bers­hip of the BVBS as an oppor­tu­ni­ty to impro­ve the gene­ral­ly app­li­ca­ble inter­faces for  con­struc­tion data, espe­cial­ly for the imple­men­ta­ti­on of plan­ning con­cepts in accordance with BIM.”

Han­nes Spielbauer

Our goal, inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry data inte­gra­ti­on during prac­ti­cal app­li­ca­ti­on, requi­res func­tio­n­ing inter­faces and inter­ac­tion bet­ween the soft­ware houses. The BVBS enab­les and pro­mo­tes this.

Frank von der Weth

„The spe­cial thing about the BVBS is, that a posi­ti­ve exchan­ge and pro­duc­ti­ve coope­ra­ti­on bet­ween com­pe­ti­tors is pos­si­ble for the bene­fit of the ent­i­re indus­try and thus influ­en­ces norms and standards.”

Mar­tin Schuff

The asso­cia­ti­on repres­ents important inte­rests of con­struc­tion soft­ware manu­fac­tu­rers in spe­cia­li­sed com­mit­tees and in public.

Wil­fried Gräbert

„Whe­ther GAEB, cost con­trol­ling or soft­ware inte­gra­ti­on, the BVBS hel­ps com­pa­nies across the board to set the right cour­se with expert com­mit­tees and expertise.”

Andre­as Malek

„In the BVBS, we regu­la­te and dis­cuss things that affect us all: The crea­ti­on of stan­dar­di­sed inter­faces and also the repre­sen­ta­ti­on of inte­rests vis-à-vis sup­pliers and tra­de associations.”

Gerald Bax
Label Soft­ware Gerald Bax GmbH

“Stan­dar­di­sed inter­faces and data exchan­ge are vital for the inter­ac­tion of dyna­mic con­struc­tion data and con­struc­tion soft­ware. We the­re­fo­re actively sup­port the BVBS in initia­ti­ves such as Open­BIM or the GAEB  data exchan­ge and STLB-Bau certification.”

Dr. habil. Klaus Schiller

„The deve­lo­p­ment of uni­form stan­dards can lead to grea­ter qua­li­ty in indi­vi­du­al solutions.The GAEB develop­ment is an excel­lent examp­le of this and a credit to the BVBS.”

Jür­gen Bauer
Bau(er) Soft­ware

„We have been part of the BVBS sin­ce it was foun­ded and main­ly exchan­ge ide­as in the working group buil­ding tra­de software.”

Peter Rix­in­ger sen.
KWP Infor­ma­ti­ons­sys­te­me

„As a foun­ding mem­ber of the BVBS, we sup­port a com­mon goal: to streng­t­hen the per­for­mance and inno­va­ti­ve power of the con­struc­tion indus­try through the use of con­struc­tion software.”
