buildingSMART Czech Republic

Standardisation

czBIM buildingSMART Czech Republic offers its members the option of participating in BIM (Building Information Modelling) standardisation on a national and international level.

Digitisation with buildingSMART

The objective of buildingSMART as an industry body is to become involved in the creation of national and international rules through open standards and its own manufacturer-independent regulations. For instance, buildingSMART has developed and globally expanded the IFC format and continues to work on its improvement – as such, it is used by a number of BIM software products.  In addition to this, buildingSMART accurately identified the need for standards of further BIM education for digital building planning, construction and operation. Here too, buildingSMART has developed global reliable standards with its partners.

The working structure with its primary areas of activity is governed according to the corresponding working structure of buildingSMART International, namely:

  • Airport Room
  • Building Room
  • Construction Room
  • Infrastructure Room
  • Product Room
  • Railway Room
  • Regulatory Room
  • Technical Room
  • Power Room

Within these working areas, working and project groups (roundtables) are organised, generally as a discussion forum for specific expert circles geared towards clarifying given topics and approving procedures.

OPEN BIM KONCEPT

The Open BIM concept is a universal approach to facilitate cooperation in the planning, construction and operation of buildings based on open standards and work procedures.

Open BIM certification is a technical certification system developed by the buildingSMART® alliance, the aim of which is to help AEC software suppliers to improve, test and certify their data links to other Open BIM solutions.
