Strategic Projects


 

Strategic Projects from buildingSMART International identify key areas of standards and services development that require funding and sponsorship in order to ensure the built environment can rely on open data standards and openBIM. These have been identified as part of the Strategic Roadmap and will ensure the industry can flourish as a result.

These Strategic Projects represent many of the most significant future developments relating to the digitalisation and sustainability of the built environment, with beneficial impacts across multiple industry domains and lifecycle phases. Delivering on the vision of the seamless exchange of trusted information across the built environment can only be achieved with funding. Your financial sponsorship of these projects will allow us to bring this vision to life for the benefit of the industry. buildingSMART International is therefore calling on industry sponsorship to help fund the delivery of these Strategic Projects. Sponsors are invited to identify one or more Strategic Projects of interest and discuss sponsorship options with buildingSMART International.
