Engage the future and have a voice
buildingSMART Australasia knows that our strength lies not only in the words
we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives.
Back in 2000, our Non-Profit realised that by working together we could
overcome our challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately
decided to launch buildingSMART Australasia.
buildingSMART (bSA) develops standards, tools and training to drive the adoption of openBIM so the sector can realise cheaper, greener, and more efficient buildings and infrastructure. bSA works hard to ensure that BIM is not proposed or implemented in a haphazard way across the sector. We help new BIM users to gain familiarity and encourage experienced users to continue to expand their BIM expertise and widening its application in the sector.
BuildingSMART Australasia is part of the international BuildingSMART programme that has representation across the UK, Europe, North America, the Middle East and Far East.
Members are plugged into a network of leading experts from around the world who define, develop, maintain and advocate for open standards such as IFCs (Industry Foundation Classes) and associated protocols to enable truly interoperable data exchange. These standards are moving towards full ISO recognition.
Robust processes using global openBIM standards.
Reliable flow of information for openBIM data exchange.
Industry-wide collaboration through interoperability.
Learning opportunities through workshops and events.
BIM course development in universities and the education industry.
Information enrichment to develop BIM learning opportunities.
Progressive model refinement throughout the process of planning, design, engineering and construction—facilitating improved asset management and operation.
What We Do
Furthering our cause is the most important goal of our organisation.
We seek to support, empower, and provide high quality resources to our community
in a safe and secure environment. Our success isn’t measured in terms of
wealth or profit margin, but by the value we provide to those we serve.
