In 2016, the CSTB initiated a research partnership with the French Defense Infrastructure Service to develop a strategy for the rollout of BIM at the Ministry of Armed Forces as part of supporting projects to build, renovate and maintain defense infrastructure.

As part of new R&D work involving the CSTB, SID and French Defense Procurement Agency (DGA), this novel approach will be tried at the military site of the DGA thruster test facility in Saclay. We will model a digital twin of the site with an experimental tool connected to the Dassault Systèmes 3DExperience platform.
