With the new Campus Biel/Bienne (CBB) building, Bern University of Applied Sciences is planning to merge the two departments of Architecture, Wood and Civil Engineering (AHB) and Engineering and Information Technology (TI) at one location. The new building will be occupied in 2021. As part of this project, a CAFM system was to be procured to further professionalise the FM services.
