The committee’s first order of business will be developing the launch plan for the initial three to five years of the U.S. National BIM Program
(WASHINGTON, DC, April 19, 2021) – The National Institute of Building Sciences has announced the built environment leaders who will serve on the National BIM Program Steering Committee.
The NIBS BIM Council began the launch phase for the U.S. National BIM Program in March, when Salla Eckhardt, Director of Transformation Services with Microsoft, was named chair of the National BIM Program Steering Committee.
Lakisha A. Woods, CAE, President and CEO of NIBS, said it is important to establish a structure that broadly engages diverse stakeholders.
“We need a coordinated program to improve performance, advance collaboration and foster innovation in the building industry,” Woods says. “The first step was to engage our partners. The goal is a solution to enable digital processes that will streamline industry practices and procedures on a national scale.”

The U.S. National BIM Program kicked off early February with a BIM Executive Roundtable. Nearly 40 business leaders discussed how a national program would help the industry by accelerating the effectiveness of the supply chain, providing predictable processes, improving project outcomes, driving efficiency, and fostering innovation.
National Institute of Building Sciences brings together labor and consumer interests, government representatives, regulatory agencies, and members of the building industry to identify and resolve problems and potential problems around the construction of housing and commercial buildings. NIBS is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization. It was established by Congress in 1974. For more information, visit nibs.org or follow @bldgsciences on Twitter and Facebook.
