NIBS launches effort to develop BIM guideline for owners

Digital model of California's National Ignition Facility. 

The National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) kicked off development of a new guideline to help building owners and design teams use building information modeling (BIM) during design, construction, and operations. The objective is to better support owners’ performance requirements.

The National BIM Guideline for Owners, will be developed by NIBS, The American Institute of Architects (AIA), Building Owners and Managers Association International (BOMA), International Facility Management Association (IFMA) and ASHRAE. It will provide uniformity in the delivery of BIM projects to government, institutional, and commercial building owners.

The guideline is intended to provide a documented process and procedure for the owner’s design team to follow in order to produce a standard set of BIM documents that will be used for maintenance and operations of the facility. The new guideline will be based on currently existing foreign, federal, state, and local BIM guides, but geared to a generic facility with uniform requirements.

The final guideline will be submitted to the appropriate standards developing organization (SDO) to go through its consensus process for joint publication as an industry standard.
