We're proud to partner with the buildingSMART alliance and Nemetschek Scia to present the AIA continuing education webinar “openBIM - Real Interoperability, Practical Collaboration” on Tuesday, November 16 at 2:00 p.m. EST/7:00 p.m. GMT.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) interoperability is possible with openBIM—the use of internationally recognized open standards to exchange building information. These open standards include the use of Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) for building geometry and data. IFC is supported by more than 70 international vendors and 110 applications and is used today to create, analyze and distribute building information models.
Presented by our in-house Project Architect, Jeffrey W. Ouellette, Assoc. AIA, this webinar will explain how both interoperability and collaboration with design partners are improved with openBIM workflows and IFC technology. Webinar attendees are eligible to receive one American Institute of Architects (AIA) continuing education credit.
“I am very pleased to see this aggressive promotion of IFCs,” said Dana K. “Deke” Smith, FAIA, Executive Director of the buildingSMART alliance. “This is in direct line with the buildingSMART worldwide movement toward open BIM standards being promoted by NIBS, AIA, SMACNA, and GSA in the United States, Senate Properties in Finland, Statsbygg in Norway, and DECA in Denmark, to name a few who have made a public declaration.”
