buildingSMART is the worldwide authority driving the transformation of the built asset economy through creation & adoption of open, international standards

What is New?

buildingSMART has a Bold New Vision for quality, engagement, and community for openBIM within the global built asset economy.

Why buildingSMART?

We have updated our Vision and Mission to reflect the challenge and opportunity presented by openBIM

Operating Vision

There are very substantial benefits potentially available from the development and adoption of interoperable standards for BIM. These benefits are only fully available if these standards are open and international. These benefits go far beyond the design and construction phases, a built environment sector fully enabled as a digital economy is envisaged.
