Group developing BIM data standards

A collaboration among Georgia Tech’s Digital Building Lab, the Precast Concrete Institute, the American Concrete Institute, and the American Institute of Steel Construction aims to develop global standards for transportation of three-dimensional digital models among fabricator, architecture, engineering, and construction groups.

According to a National Institute of Standards and Technology report, $15.8 billion is lost every year due to deficient data exchange in construction projects. A collaboration among Georgia Tech’s Digital Building Lab, the Precast Concrete Institute, the American Concrete Institute, and the American Institute of Steel Construction aims to reduce that figure by developing global standards for transportation of three-dimensional digital models among fabricator, architecture, engineering, and construction groups.
