Project

National BIM Standard for Precast Concrete, Phase Three

Research purpose

This phase of work will complete the initial full implementation of the National BIM Standard for Precast Concrete. It follows on the completion of the first two phases of NBIMS development by Georgia Tech and the PCI BIM Committee, carried out during 2008-2011 and reported elsewhere on the CPF website. The Phase 3 work will accomplish:

1. Develop, through test models and a broadened range of software companies’ support, the complete implementation of the Precast Concrete National BIM Standard.

2. Validate the implementation procedures previously demonstrated, logically modularizing the implementation using Semantic Exchange Modules (SEMs) to support unique exchange needs.

3. Submit the IDM and MVD implementation to buildingSMART Americas for balloting and approval.

4. Prepare test materials to support certification testing to be carried out by the software companies.
