NBIMS-US™ V3 Ballot Submission Period Now Open

June 06, 2013 -- The ballot submission period for the National BIM Standard – United States™ Version 3 (NBIMS-US™ V3) is now open, giving all building professionals the opportunity to offer their ideas to influence the future use of building information modeling (BIM) in the United States.

A BIM is a shared resource of knowledge about a facility that can be used to make decisions throughout its life cycle, from the initial idea, to design and construction, through daily operations and eventual demolition.

Because a BIM covers all aspects of the building process, everyone in the construction industry will be impacted as the use of BIMs becomes the standard operating procedure. Therefore, the National Institute of Building Sciences’ buildingSMART alliance™ is asking professionals from every sector in the building industry to participate in the development process of NBIMS-US™ V3. Ballots can amend or revise current NBIMS-US™ content or they can propose adding the latest technologies, processes and practices not yet included in the standard.

Since NBIMS Version 1- Part 1 was first released in 2007, the content of the standard has evolved, including information exchange standards for construction operations and product specifications. NBIMS-US™ V2 is a consensus-based standard and includes reference standards, information exchange standards (which are built upon the reference standards) and best practice guidelines to support users in their implementation of open BIM standards-based deliverables.

The Ballot Submission Period for NBIMS-US™ V3 ends August 19, 2013. View the Schedule. Individuals and organizations that are not yet NBIMS-US™ members, learn how to get involved. NBIMS Project Committee members, download ballots now.
