the NBIMS-US™ Survey
The Planning Committee for the nation’s building
information modeling (BIM) standard is conducting a survey to obtain more
information about the building industry’s use and perceived value of the
National BIM Standard – United States® (NBIMS-US™).
The three-minute survey is meant to capture
information about the awareness, understanding and implementation of the
NBIMS-US™ and find out what industry professionals think should be addressed in
future versions of the standard.
The National Institute of Building Sciences
buildingSMART alliance™ NBIMS-US™ Project Committee is currently in the process
of balloting Version 3 of the standard. With the results of the survey, the
Alliance will be better able to plot a path to steer future NBIMS-US™ content to
address issues important to the building industry.
Today’s building professionals are increasingly
using BIM in their work. The NBIMS-US™ is a consensus-based standard that
supports users in their implementation of BIM. Because a BIM covers all aspects
of the building process, and everyone in the construction industry will be
impacted as the use of BIM becomes standard operation procedure, it is
increasingly important that representatives from every segment of the industry
participate in development of the standard. With more industry input, the
standard can become stronger and more effective, helping the U.S. building
industry to become more efficient and productive.
The survey is open until November 15. It consists
of 15 multiple-choice questions and should take no more than 10 minutes to
complete. The buildingSMART alliance™ will share the survey results during
Building Innovations 2014: the National Institute of Building Sciences
Conference and Expo, the week of January 6-10, 2014. Take the survey
