BIM-MEPAUS Signs MoU with buildingSMART Australasia

At our recent Construction Innovation Forum, David Mitchell – Chairperson of buildingSMART Australasia – gave an update to announce a Memorandum of Understanding between the Air Conditioning & Mechanical Contractors’​ Association of Australia and buildingSMART Australasia which compliments an MoU with GS1 Australia

The MoU will help design to as-built and design to fabrication workflows and product identification using:

  • BIM-MEPAUS standards – for design, construction and fabrication workflows
  • openBIM (.ifc) standards – for information exchange, via IFC mapping files created to export BIM-MEPAUS data sets as IFC files
  • GS1 standards – for product identification

Further, additional benefits include trace-ability and product authentication to:

  • Check products against specifications
  • Identify recalled products
  • Minimise product failures

BIM-MEPAUS will also support the Future Infrastructure Summit in Melbourne and Brisbane, alongside Digital Built Environment Institute
