As one of the most influential construction businesses across Europe, Wienerberger, the leading provider of wall, roof and landscaping innovations, has announced that it will be working in close partnership with Construction Products Europe (CPE) in order to spearhead digitalisation of the sector.

As part of the investment, Wienerberger’s Paul Surin, Head of Built Environment at Wienerberger, is set to work with CPE throughout 2017 to launch the new initiative, named Task Group Digitalisation. Designed with the aim of assisting with the innovation of construction products’ information across the sector, Paul will head up the coordination of raising the profile of Building Information Modelling (BIM) as convenor of this task group.

Paul Surin commented:
"We’re delighted that the CPE board has approved the launch of a new task group to help with the digitilisation of construction products. Our main priority will be the development of a smart CE marking initiative and its proof of concept – so we really are hitting the ground running.

"The group is open to all CPE members, so we are encouraging associates across Europe to get behind the new initiative. We want everyone to really look at ways in which we can truly innovate across the sector to help secure a more efficient and sustainable future for the industry as a whole."
