Building Room

The Building Room’s remit is to standardize processes, work-flows, procedures for open BIM for all participants in the construction industry based on open BIM and to support them with tools, guidelines and manuals.

The primary focus of the process room is on processes for the ‘buildings’ sector.

The Building Room is responsible for the maintenance for the core IDM Standard ISO 29481-1.  It keeps an overview of IDM projects going on and supports local initiatives concerning development and implementation of IDMs by reviewing project proposals and answering questions. It is anticipated that the work of the Building Room will lead to new IDM & MVDs and corresponding terminology sets identified in the bSDD for Buildings.

The Building Room manages the buildingSMART Award and use cases, also bringing identified model issues forward to the modelling software houses.

The Building Room sponsors the BIM Guidelines Working group.
