buildingSMART alliance® Projects & Standards
"... VA fully supports the development of national standards for BIM and other data standards under the umbrella of buildingSMART alliance® that are necessary to achieve our critical mission goals."

Projects are at the heart of the work of the Alliance. Some are projects of the Alliance such as the United States National CAD Standard® and National BIM Standard - United States®, while some are funded and coordinated by others. We welcome all open BIM projects to be listed here so that the industry has one clearinghouse for all open BIM efforts oriented toward transforming the facilities industry. The output of many of these projects are ballots for the active standards efforts of the Alliance.
A goal of the buildingSMART alliance® is to develop a consensus infrastructure to advance open industry standards for interoperability and collaboration between practitioners. Projects are the feeder system to define and test the desired standards. Having a fully engaged and fully resourced approach, which encompasses all stakeholders and life cycle phases, will ensure robust and usable open standards. Standards are the basis for seamless communication and interoperability.
Alliance Projects are continually expanding and changing. We provide detailed information about each project from the categories below. To add a project to the list to be coordinated by the buildingSMART alliance® please contact us.
