The standard is intended for construction professionals, manufacturers and other BIM content developers to assist in the creation of BIM objects that operate in a Common Data Environment (CDE).
The online version of the NBS BIM Object Standard is accessible at any time from any device.
To help you understand the requirements of the NBS BIM Object Standard we have provided comprehensive NBS guidance to accompany the online version. The NBS guidance includes background information, checks for achieving compliance, invaluable supporting content and technical help providing clarity and competency when creating BIM objects to the NBS BIM Object Standard.
Register with the NBS National BIM Library to access the online version and benefit from free and extensive NBS guidance.
This means you can select and use BIM objects with confidence, knowing that you are working with objects that are in the right format, contain all the information you need and are compatible with all platforms that you work across.
Whether objects are authored by NBS or another provider, by using this standard it ensures consistency not only for you and the people you work alongside but across the entire construction industry.
NBS National BIM Library objects work directly with various BIM design tools and can be seamlessly integrated into NBS Create software, no other BIM object library can offer you this.
The NBS BIM Object Standard defines requirements for the information, geometry, behaviour and presentation of BIM objects, to give reassurance of quality that will enable greater collaboration and efficient information exchange across the construction industry.
By standardizing BIM objects, you can consistently use, compare, analyse, and share information to make informed decisions quickly and confidently.
The standard is paramount, not just for NBS but for all those who author BIM objects as we can now create BIM objects to a common data set.
NBS recognised the lack of structure and data consistency across all BIM objects. As more and more assets are being built with BIM the introduction of this standard will revolutionise the way in which we interact with the information.
To achieve consistency NBS has produced a global standard for BIM objects with a recognisable set of criteria, to which all BIM objects can be created.
The creation of BIM objects for the inclusion on the National BIM Library includes Omniclass classification codes and titles.
