I work with GREENbimlabs as their mentor via Google for Startups, and rarely have I met a team with such knowledge, dedication, and drive to succeed. Their product is groundbreaking: it takes the abstract idea of sustainable building and provides architects the tool they need to make it a concrete way of working. At the same time the product is so crucial for a sustainable future that it feels as if it should have been built a long time ago. I am proud to support them on their journey to changing the way we build.Maja LidénDigital Customers Experience, Google

There is virtually no architect or civil engineer in Germany, who does not rely on the knowledge and information of the Baunetz platform and magazines, which have long become the go-to source for reliable information about all-things-buildings and building innovation. Thus, we could not be more excited that Baunetz covered our story and our technology in their most recent issue of Baunetz Woche. Special thanks to Adeline Seidel for the coverage and for one the most inspiring and energising interviews we have ever given! Read the full article in Baunetz Issue 567.
Stanimira was very vocal about her concerns related to the huge gap in the progress and state of digitalization in Germany in general and especially in the building industry, where Germany cannot even place in the top 20 worldwide and thus is missing out to the competition on the global market, but also on the huge potential for productivity, efficiency, cost and sustainability gains.The panellists stressed the need to fund demo projects, in which startups implement their technology in the practice and support to soften a culture of reluctance towards innovative and not completely mature solutions; digital transformation in education as strongly stressed by Ranga Yogeshwar and especially Andera Gadeib, who has proven time and again, that there are many working solutions ready and waiting to be implemented and way overdue; and to close the huge gap in the number of scientist and specialist, especially in the areas of digital technologies where Germany is currently educating less than 4% of the specialist worldwide.
What better place than Slush 2019 to demonstrate how the technologies of today can and should help us reduce the ecological footprint of our buildings, the single largest contributor to climate change and resource exhaustion? At the Google for Startups stage, Dr. Stanimira Markova demonstrated how AI and BIM can invert the ecological footprint of buildings.
A building design process, based on the digitalisation of processes and of information flows as performed in a BIM based projects, is merely the first capabilities which will enable architects, owners and operators to comprehend, model and solve the urgent issues of time, cost and resource efficiency in the construction industry in its exploding complexity and interdisciplinary nature. Design and decision automation by applying machine learning is what gives the power to identify and solve these design driven problems instantly, as soon as they appear in the process and eliminate them from activating after the begin of utilisation and operations. At one of the largest industry conferences in our region, in our workshop on BIM implementation and utilisation Mirela and Hristo from team GREENbimlabs demonstrated how data and algorithms can detect and tackle instantly weaknesses in the design process in a way, which allows for cost, time and resource consumption to be immediately recognised and drastically reduced and is out of reach in the classical, human power driven data collection and analysis.
Next "one-in-a-lifetime" within our very young age of exactly one year: our CEO has been selected as one of only 16 extraordinary female tech founders from around the globe for the Google’s Female Founders Mentorship program. Happy for Stanimira Markova and thrilled for Team GREENbimlabs for being accepted in the Google mentors' network, and hence, getting the chance to experience the incredible expertise, network and spirit from within!
GREENbimlabs in the media : a 4-page article in Build.Ing - the German magazine for BIM and digital technologies for the construction industry - about our technology and how we use BIM models to evaluate and optimize the quality of material information and its documentation, material safety, the comprehensive building circularity and the avoidance of life cycle costs and risks in building operation in real time. In other words, how we ensure that every building is designed and built as a documented, secure, predictable, and cost-effective secondary storage facility for materials.https://www.build-ing.de/fachartikel/detail/bevor-der-letzte-sand-gefoerdert-ist/
In the VdW magazine of the housing and real estate industry there is an interview with our CEO Stanimira Markova, who explains how digital technologies, BIM and data models are opening up a new era for sustainability in the construction industry and how many complex issues in building design and operation can be approached and solved systematically for the first time.https://www.vdw-rw.de/fileadmin/VdW-RW/VerbandsMagazin/2019/VM-07-08-2019-Web.pdf
Mirela from team GREENbimlabs as the most devoted ambassador of the vision of GREENbimlabs to develop and use cutting edge technologies to transform buildings into fully documented and plannable, self-sustained and secondary material stocks, while saving millions in the operation process for the building owner and operator. A great community with some of the biggest names in the industry presented, proving once again, that digital technologies, designing buildings for the entire life-cycle scope and for circularity and resource efficiency are gaining their momentum in the industry.
A joint team from GREENbimlabs, the institute for Building Design and Realisation and students in architecture at the RWTH Aachen demonstrated the combined potential of new technologies to get control on the complexity of building design with no compromise on the building sustainability. A BIM-replica of the Rheinbad in Düsseldorf, based on the existing building and building documentation, was created by GREENbimlabs and students from the faculty for Architecture. The transferred digital documentation in the BIM-model was then evaluated and extended by GREENbimlabs and simulations of the current state of the material circularity, of the maintenance and end-of life cost were performed. THE BIM-model and the results were demonstrated in AIXCave at the RWTH Aachen, the largest of its kind worldwide. In the virtual journey and virtual results demonstration in the BIM-Model in the VR Cave a large group of visitors from industry participated, representing the actors involved in all life cycle phases of the Rheinbad Düsseldorf: material and product producers, whose systems and products are built in the building, architects and engineering companies, which were involved in the initial planning and extension of the Rheinbad as well representatives of the operation and managing team of the Rheinbad.
Another memorable day from our participation at the Hannover Messe 2019: GREENbimlabs is one of the winners of the Young Tech Enterprise Award!
One of the memorable highlights of our participation at the Hannover Messe 2019 as part of the KNUW start-up network 2019 and a WOW! moment for the delegation of the Ministry of Environment, led by Minister Ursula Heinen-Esser. GREENbimlabs demonstrated the power of the Aikana method and the complexity of the science behind it. We were thrilled to experience how the results, facts and figures from our presentation echoed in the numerous discussions and panels afterwards and looking forward to the collaborations in an impressive new network.
A very busy International Women's Day for our CEO Stanimira Markova for a cause, very close to her heart and organic in the DNA of GREENbimlabs as the team and place, where diversity in all its forms is lived every day.

GREENbimlabs and the institute for Building Design hosting industry and academia in a workshop about digital innovations for the building life cycle. Representatives from the construction industry joined us in a two-days meetup, in which the latest innovations made at the RWTH and in partnerships were demonstrated, among them the GREENbimlabs software solution Aikana, the energy simulation solution from the Institute of Energy Efficiency Buildings and Indoor Climate from the E.ON Research Centre, the augmented reality app Gamma from formitas AG and the smart system for buildings system operations from Aedifion.
"Developing the digital technologies of today to save the real world of tomorrow!" was the message in the presentation of GREENbimlabs at the E2 Forum of VDMA. A special focus on how the introduction and utilisation of information models (BIM) in the building design process becomes the game changer and methodical and technical enabler for the complex sustainability simulation and building design optimisation regarding multiple aspects like LCA, energy optimisation, material circularity and urban mining.
What is BIM and how the transition to BIM is affecting me as producer? In a full day workshop lead by Stanimira Markova, 20 material producers, among them some of the largest in Germany and worldwide, took a dive in the principles, methods and processes in BIM and the BIM-bases building design and operation processes. Among the topics were the full workflow for creating BIM-objects, including the choice of the optimal LODs, setting up of a strategy for choosing the optimal scope and amount of data content to be integrated in the BIM-objects, the processes and actors in the data exchange and communication, the requirements on every capabilities of it and how it affects the identification of the sufficient type and number of parameters in the BIM-Objects, the BIM-Model and the BIM-based process. The participants learnt how to extend the data in the BIM-objects for the necessary representation of sustainability, energy, cost, operations, maintenance and other aspects, as well as the differences in the advances of BIM implementation worldwide.
We were thrilled to be one of the winners of one of the most prestigious awards for technology innovation-based start-ups in Germany.
