The American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) is now accepting proposals for the development of a best practices guide on the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) that is consistent and cohesive with the checks and balances currently provided in the AISC Code of Standard Practice for Steel Buildings and Bridges.

The AISC Code Committee seeks assistance from BIM users including engineers, fabricators, erectors, detailers, architects and contractors, in identifying and documenting best practices to facilitate the long-term standardization of BIM in structural steel construction. Download the Request for Proposal form.

"The AISC Code reflects industry advancements and provides the AEC community with a useful framework for a common understanding of acceptable standards when contracting for structural steel," commented Charles J. Carter, S.E., P.E., Ph.D., AISC vice president and chief structural engineer. "However, few aspects of BIM have become standard. This has hampered the ability of the AISC Code Committee to incorporate provisions related to BIM into the Code."

Proposals are due by March 27, 2013, and may be submitted via email to AISC's Jie Zuo at zuo@aisc.org, or by mail to:
