BuildingSMART International, a non-profit organization that promotes and supports the use of Open BIM standards for AEC industries, is accepting submissions for its inaugural Business Gain Through Open Technology award. Entries, due August 31, must demonstrate how using Open BIM standards improves interoperability and offers major business gains to all participants involved in the building process from the designer to the contractor to the owner.

The winning designer will be recognized at the international buildingSMART meetings in Toronto this October. In addition, the top 10 finalists will have their designs displayed on the organization’s website, and special awards will be given to the best proposal from a small and medium enterprise and to a proposal sharing end-user experiences.

Anyone may submit a project for consideration, including non-buildingSMART members and clients, as long as one or more of the buildingSMART tools and standards are used, which include the Industry Foundation Classes (IFC), buildingSMART Data Dictionary (bSDD or IFD), Information Delivery Manual (IDM), Model View Definition (MVD), and BIM Collaboration Format (BCF). Entries will be examined by a panel of judges chosen from buildingSMART chapters around the world.

Visit our BIM in Practice page to learn how Vectorworks Architect software supports Open BIM standards and allows designers to work in 2D or 3D to easily move BIM projects along to others involved in the building process.
