A wealth of largely untapped building information is now available to facility managers. The challenge is in navigating that information and knowing how best to use it. Building Information Modeling (BIM) provides a starting point for meeting these challenges. For years, Labs21 audiences have discussed how BIM is transforming how high-technology facilities are designed and built. In December 2007, the buildingSMART alliance™ (bSa™) released the first version of the National BIM Standard-United States™ (NBIMS-US™), which primarily outlined how standards would be developed, as there was little standardization at that time. In May 2012, bSa released Version 2, which was the first consensus-based NBIMS-US. This standard was released to begin providing the entire facilities industry with a common approach to creating an optimized high-performance building. Version 3 of NBIMS-US is now underway and in need of input from the high-tech facility community to ensure the information will be beneficial. I2SL wishes to acknowledge the buildingSMART alliance for developing and offering this workshop.
