Just wanted to introduce myself to my fellow bloggers. I am currently leading the efforts of many in development of the National BIM Standard. I am also involved in the development of buildingSMART as I am on a task force with several IAI and NIBS BOD members working out a charter, business plan and funding strategy. Our goal is to accelerate the implementation of building information models and building information modeling. The focus of course is on information and we are lookng way beyond 3D visualization to essentially building a building virtually before physically. Working out as many problems as possible electronically. I am interested in hearing the stage everyone is at in implementing BIM and what we can do to help. I know education is a huge issue both at the university level and continuing education for the practitioner. Let me know what you are thinking about this subject.
