Remember the days of exchanging massive project files only to find out the person on the receiving end couldn’t open them? The processes were clunky and led to inefficient, fragmented workflows. So what’s the better way for the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industries to continue to modernize?

The answer is BIM (Building Information Modeling), the process of creating and managing information for a built asset—from design and engineering to construction and operations. And openBIM is the common language and standards that enables interoperability of software solutions so that information can be shared regardless of the vendor you’re using.

Although BIM moved the industry ahead with 3D digital models tied to design data, openBIM is another key facet in the digital transformation of the built environment. It allows teams in formerly siloed disciplines—such as architectural, structural, and mechanical processes—to exchange information while still using their preferred software.

OpenBIM helps construction teams work better, deliver a better product for their clients, and begin to unlock the potential of a digitally powered industry.

OpenBIM allows interoperability among teams, tools, and processes at every phase of a project.

What Is OpenBIM?

A simple openBIM definition is that it’s a way for multidisciplinary teams that are not running the same software to exchange information.
