Building industry professionals at the ArchitectureBoston Expo (ABX), to be held October 28-30 in Boston, Massachusetts, will have the opportunity to learn how building information modeling (BIM) with consensus industry standards can improve project delivery when they attend a workshop presented by Jeffrey W. Ouellette, Assoc. AIA, IES.
Ouellette serves as vice chair of the National BIM Standard-United States® (NBIMS-US™) Version 3Project Committee, the committee responsible for developing that standard for the National Institute of Building Sciences buildingSMART alliance. He will present Better Project Delivery through Implementation of the National BIM Standard-US® on Tuesday, October 28, from 8:00 to 9:30 am.
The Institute will be releasing the NBIMS-US™ Version 3 later this year. The newest edition of the standard will provide design professionals, contractors, facility managers and owners with technology, process and best practice standards to facilitate data for the design, procurement, construction and operation of a building. As the vice-chair of the project committee responsible for the standard’s development, Ouellette will provide an insider’s look at all parts of the standard; what they mean to the design professional, project partners and clients; and how they can be successfully applied to the execution of a particular project or the everyday practices of a design firm.
