Building Information Modeling, or BIM for short, is playing an increasingly important role as a planning method in landscape architecture. Although most construction projects have been digitally drawn for a long time and project management, AVA and other software is used, the captured data remains trapped in separate systems. With BIM, on the other hand, a central data structure of the construction object, including a three-dimensional model, is set up and managed. In this way, BIM allows for a holistic view of the project and its development, taking into account all relevant characteristic data as well as the life cycle of the respective object.

The shortage of skilled workers is also becoming more acute in landscape architecture. That is why the topic of recruiting new talent has a central place in the current association work of the bdla. Among other things, it is necessary to start with school students and to advertise for a student internship in a planning office. It is a low-threshold offer and the first contact can be the impulse for the occupation with landscape architecture, one of the most exciting planning disciplines with diverse development possibilities.
