Infrastructure Room



The purpose of the Infrastructure Room to combine, enhance and develop open standards for intelligent data, which enable process and data integration for Infrastructure.  The scope includes information exchange and process standards to support effective management of the constructed built environment and linking and integrating across BIM and GIS.  The Infrastructure Room leads buildingSMART efforts in a number of areas, including those for roads, bridges, tunnels, ports and waterways.

Steering Committee

The steering committee is led by representatives representing the broad scope of the Infrastructure Room.  This includes individuals from buildingSMART members and chapters that come from consulting engineering firms, owners, and academic institutions, as well as other industry experts.  The steering committee facilitates the project and activities of the room, including overseeing its working groups, leading the room sessions at buildingSMART Summits, interacting with the Standards Committee and ensuring the buildingSMART Process is followed.
