The Pro IT project has been developing the entire construction process and its procedures with a building product model concept serving as a common source of information for the various parties involved in the process. The scope of the project covered modelling the product model-based process and its data exchange, compiling the design guidelines needed in product modelling, and creating product structure libraries.

The project was supported by the member companies of the Confederation of Finnish Construction Industries RT, performing the piloting and testing with the help of real projects and products. The work was done in cooperation with Tekes (the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation), designers, construction clients, consultants and other interest groups. Industry-wide product modelling procedures and guidelines have been created as a result. The results are public, and the publications of the project can be downloaded for free.
