A comprehensive standard should be developed for any kind of construction projects. The initial standard shall be implemented as soon as possible, to define the scope of BIM and provide guidance to those currently establishing BIMs, in order to maximize the collection of information likely to be useful throughout the life of the facility. Having information collected in a standard format will allow parties to the process to migrate and access data collected throughout this life cycle. The Standard shall use the NIBS consensus process as maintained and overseen by the NIBS Consultative Council as assigned by the NIBS Board of Directors
We follow AIA, NCS, ASTM or any other standard you may specify to give you impressive looking.
The National CAD Standard - The NCS is a product from the cooperation of the AIA, CSI, and NIBS. The NCS represents a consensus among architects, engineers, and experts from the construction industry about how to classify building design data and streamline communication among owners and design and construction project teams based on paper-centric information delivery. After several years of informal teaming with technology companies, NCS has developed a more formal program for technology companies.
The NCS defines standards for many aspects of electronic building-design data, including:
- CAD layers
- Organization of drawing sets
- Drawing sheets and schedules
- Drafting conventions
- Terms and abbreviations
- Graphic symbols
- Code conventions
For over 150 years, members of The American Institute of Architects have worked with each other and their communities to create more valuable, healthy, secure, and sustainable buildings and cityscapes. AIA members have access to the right people, knowledge, and tools to create better design, and through such resources and access, they help clients and communities make their visions real.
A non-profit technical society (formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials) that develops and publishes standards, definitions of materials, methods for testing materials, recommended installation practices, and specifications for materials.
