buildingSMART alliance releases consensus-based BIM standard for the U.S.
The National Institute of Building Sciences buildingSMART alliance released the first-ever consensus-based standard governing building information modeling (BIM) for use in the United States, according to a NIBS release. The National BIM Standard-United States Version 2 covers the full lifecycle of buildings—from planning, design and construction to operations and sustainment. Part of an international effort, the NBIMS-US V2 will serve as the kick-off point for a number of other countries around the world to adopt as their own BIM standard, NIBS officials said in the release.
