Bringing together member organisations who share the vision of improving construction through the use of open Building Information Modelling (BIM)*, buildingSMART UK’s remit is to develop the standards and tools required to ensure that the industry knows what openBIM is and how to use it effectively to achieve greener, leaner and more efficient buildings and infrastructure in the UK.

*openBIM is a universal approach to the collaborative design, realisation and operation of buildings based on open standards and workflows. openBIM is an initiative of buildingSMART

  • supporting a transparent, open workflow, allowing project members to participate regardless of the software tools they use.
  • creating a common language for widely referenced processes, allowing industry and government to procure projects with transparent commercial engagement, comparable service evaluation and assured data quality.
  • providing enduring project data for use throughout the asset life–cycle, avoiding multiple input of the same data and consequential errors.
