CYPE presents its application for digitising urban development to the United Nations
Pablo Gilabert, company's Director of Innovation, took part in the conference entitled "Technology for urban planning: the case of CYPEURBAN" where he demonstrated how the tool makes it possible to grant and digitally check urban planning licences
Pablo Gilabert, Director of Innovation at CYPE, discussed the advantages of this application during the "Technology for urban planning: the case of CYPEURBAN" event organised by UNECE Real Estate Market Advisory Group (REM), the group which assists the Committee for Urban Development, Housing and Land Management of the international organisation.
During his presentation, Pablo Gilabert explained that cities are able to implement their standards and code requirements for different urban areas in CYPEURBAN, in order to speed up the processing of building permits by facilitating the delivery of digital building models in open formats during the project brief via the BIMserver.center platform.
"The average delay for the granting of licences is between six and nine months," recalled CYPE's Director of Innovation, pointing out that the reasons for this delay, according to Spanish government technicians, are the presentation of poorly structured and excessive documentation, inadequate use of new computer technologies within the Administration, lack of knowledge of the code on behalf of the project designer, and the lack of fluidity when communicating requirements between the Administration and the project designer.
According to Pablo Gilabert, "these constraints can be overcome with technology and digitalisation"
Furthermore, the CYPE ecosystem also allows both designers and urban planning technicians to view projects in specific geographic locations (https://store.bimserver.center/
