Please see all current updates on this project at the Project Website:

This BIM Project Execution Planning Guide is a product of the BIM Project Execution Planning buildingSMART allianceâ„¢ (bSa) Project. The bSa is charged with developing the Nationl Building Information Modeling Standardâ„¢ (NBIMS). This guide was developed to provide a practical manual that can be used by project teams for designing their BIM strategy and developing a BIM Project Execution Plan. The core modeling and information exchange concepts are developed to complement the long term goals of the bSA in the development of a standard that can be implemented throughout the AECOO Industry to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of BIM implementation on projects.
