On 3 April 2019, AREP President Raphaël Ménard presented Platform©, a geographic information system (GIS) tool enabling BIM / CIM (City Information Modeling) interoperability, at the BIMWOLRD Paris 2019, the leading event for digital transformation in construction, real estate and urban development.

AREP is positioning itself as a driving force in the zero-carbon construction industry and is rolling out an ambitious programme, in which BIM plays a major role: "EMC2", which stands for Energy, Materials, Carbon and Climate. Data modelling and data management make it possible to introduce environmental requirements at the early stage of the design process with regard to projects ranging from buildings to smart cities. We have developed Datavisualisation in order to associate an environmental dashboard to models and to be able to assess in real time the consequences of choosing a particular material or a project alternative.
AREP has also joined forces with SNCF Gares & Connexions to foster BIM GEM implementation in projects (facility management, operation and maintenance), and supports reverse-engineering experimentation aimed at optimizing site management.
