Building Room



The core mission of the Building Room is to create open digital standards and solutions by enabling intelligent data that either contributes to the planning, design and construction of buildings, or the ongoing operations and maintenance. This will enable process and data integration for buildings for the entire lifecycle. To understand the Building Room purpose in more detail please refer to the Building Room Roadmap.

Steering Committee

The Building Room is led by a steering committee comprised of representatives from international members and local buildingSMART chapters.  The steering committee facilitates the project and activities of the room, interacts with and provides reports to the standards committee, leads the room sessions at buildingSMART summits, and ensures the buildingSMART Process is followed.
