The National BIM Standard, United States

Collaborative Framework

The National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) produces the National BIM Standard for the US (NBIMS). This standard outlines the processes and procedures for delivering BIM in a standardised way.

The National BIM Standard, United States™ (NBIMS-US™) provides consensus-based standards through referencing existing standards, documenting information exchanges and delivering best-business practices for the entire built environment.

With open BIM standards, detailed models can be built and accurate products delivered that can be used during commissioning and operation to ensure facility functionality throughout the life of the facility. They also support the delivery of high performing, carbon neutral and net-zero energy-based facilities.
