What is possible with open standards was demonstrated during the buildingSMART International Standards Summit in Düsseldorf by the speakers of the almost 20 lectures of the supporting programme "BIM at its Best".
Whether in an architectural office with seven employees or in major international projects - efficient cooperation in the construction industry only works with open standards and manufacturer-neutral interfaces. This was demonstrated at the buildingSMART International Standards Summit by the speakers of the almost 20 lectures of the supporting program "BIM at its Best". Last year's winner of the buildingSMART International Award in the category "Operations and Maintenance", Ernesto Minucci, spoke about the importance openBIM plays in the operation and maintenance of Naples's main railway station. Bjørnar Markussen, BIM coordinator of Aas-Jakobsen, explained why the Norwegian consulting firm was only able to implement the "T2" construction project at Oslo Airport with open standards in such a way that it won the buildingSMART International Award in the "Design" category in 2018.
Open-BIM supports small businesses
Caspar Richter of Richter Architekten and Thomas Klug, Managing Director of Haushochdrei, showed that open standards also help small architecture and planning offices to submit resilient offers to their clients in the shortest possible time and to react flexibly when the wishes of the client change. Szabolcs Kari, Senior BIM Consultant at Graphisoft, explained how openBIM is introduced in an architectural office.
