Surfing the openBIM® Transformation Wave

Calvin Kam (Strategic Building Innovation) and David Unkefer (USDOT Federal Highway Administration), two leaders collaborating on openBIM®/openGIS standards with buildingSMART, presented insights and practicable approaches to support lifecycle maintenance of buildings and infrastructure. Using proven global best practice, they showed how developers of both vertical and horizontal project information models can leverage the power of automated quality assurance and scalable openBIM®+openGIS integration, to improve the design, delivery, and operation of the built environment. Our presenters say the potential integration of models of all asset types holds the greatest promise and business opportunity for those who begin modeling for interoperability today.
