Developing Standards-Based Education Modules for Building Information Modeling
To develop four standards-based education modules that strengthen the connection between building information modeling (BIM), a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility, and its fundamental technology and the connections between BIM and documentary standards. The modules will include BIM for building design and construction, information delivery from construction to operation, and information exchanges between a building and third-party service providers for grid interaction and energy analytics.
