Our vision & values
BuildingSMART is a neutral, international and unique not-for-profit organisation supporting open BIM.
Our world-wide alliance includes architects, engineers, contractors, building owners, facility managers, manufacturers, software vendors, information providers, government agencies, research laboratories, universities - and more.
BuildingSMART's legal governing body is the International Council. The Executive Committee is responsible for day-to-day running of the organisation, supported by a small management team.
Two standing committees oversee buildingSMART's work program and co-ordinate the activities of working groups, or "rooms".
Our work program
By developing open data standards for Building Information Modelling (BIM) - and supporting their implementation - we aim to improve the exchange of information between software applications used by AEC and FM professionals around the world.
