What are the BIM Implementation Standards?

by Tejjy Inc CEO

BIM implementation standards are the guidelines for developing the BIM program. Adopting these standards enhances the interoperability of the Building Information Modeling system with other services, including architectural, structural and MEPFP. The principles act as a guideline for future development and innovation, maximizing the longevity of the BIM system.

BIM standards in United States 

The US BIM standard NBIMS-US V3 was developed by NIBS, a non-profit agency in 1974, by the US Congress with the task of integrating the whole building community for advancing building science and technology. The purpose is to facilitate lifecycle management of a built environment, reinforced by digital technology. Implementing the standards ultimately facilitates in creating a reliable and accurate process for maintenance and management of BIM data throughout the facility lifecycle.

The stated goals for BIM project execution include:

  • Collaboration & information sharing amongst stakeholders through products and techniques 

  • Creating a standard BIM process, creating consistency in cost and outcome

  • Building solutions supporting consensus agreement of practitioners

Technology Standards for BIM (Building Information Modeling) 

  • ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 167939 IFC  2 X 3

  • IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) constitutes to be an underlying data scheme, outlining a neutral  exchange format for BIM. This facilitates data sharing through BIM authoring and development tools.  ISO167939 IFC  2 X 3 also encompasses software applications for energy analysis, BASs & code compliance. The BIM authoring tool also uses IFC exports as an interoperable information exchange.

  • Green Building Extensible Markup Language

  • The BIM standard supports the exchange of BIM data with sustainability analysis for architectural & engineering services such as energy utilization, load calculations, etc. This enables transfer of building data stored in BIM models.

  • OmniClass

  • The BIM standard is a classification system for the Architectural, Engineering and Construction industry to organize assets for electronic databases. OmniClass works well in operation & maintenance phases of a facility lifecycle, providing the best interoperability between BIM & CMMS (computerized maintenance management system). The technique supports facility lifecycle management of the building and incorporates the basis of other classification systems for the construction industry.

  • UniFormat

  • UniFormat is a classification system that emphasizes on the physical parts of a facility, including systems and assemblies. This is utilized for cost estimating applications based on a streamlined form. It streamlines focus on specific assets for organizations.

  • W3C XML

  • W3C XML facilitates exchange of Building Information Modeling data in an internet based environment. This assumes greater importance with the implementation of mobile based BIM applications. BIM and GIS software vendors seek several W3C compliant systems for data sharing amongst platforms.
