~sigh~ even I'm getting tired of the acronyms...

The National Institute of Building Standards (NIBS) through its
Facility Information Council (FIC) has formed a committee to create the
National Building Information Model Standard (NBIMS). The Standard is
considered to be a critical element in reforming business practices in the
capital facilities industry and recapturing at least $15B annually lost due
to inefficiencies.

The NBIMS team is actively soliciting participation from public and private
organizations and individuals and, to date, 26 organizations representing
most aspects of the facility lifecycle and many types of associated
businesses have signed the Committee charter and over 80 individuals,
overseen by an executive committee, are actively participating on NBIM
working groups.

The NBIMS Project Committee seeks to facilitate integration by providing a
common language for describing facility information, common views of
information based on the needs of businesses engaged in all aspects of
facility commerce, and common standards for sharing data between businesses
and their data processing applications. Use of common language and practices
is expected to reduce building costs, insurance liability, construction
schedules, and operating expense while increasing building performance,
safety, building life and occupant efficiency.

To further rapid development and wide acceptance, the Committee is
partnering with international standards organizations and leveraging
existing initiatives. Organizations include the Open Standards Consortium
for Real Estate (OSCRE), the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc.® (OGC),
International Alliance for Interoperability (IAI) International, and
FIATECH - a private standards consortium. In addition, the Committee is
seeking and receiving active participation by professional organizations
such as the American Institute of Architects (AIA), Building Owners &
Managers Association (BOMA), Construction Specifications Institute (CSI),
Construction Users Roundtable (CURT), International Facilitates Management
Association (IFMA), Mortgage Bankers Association, etc.

Recent announcements by the US General Services Administration (GSA), US
Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the US Coast Guard (USCG) are an
indication of rapid and immediate evolutionary pressures in the capital
facilities industry. These government agencies and, similarly, private
organizations, now require integrated service delivery approaches, use of
'virtual building models' to reduce errors and omissions, and the use and
delivery of digital datasets for facility operations, maintenance and
renewal; which support improved service delivery, enhanced emergency
planning, management and response. Without a standard this is a risky
endeavor.

Release of the first version of the NBIM Standard is planned for December
2006
