28th July 2021IFC 4.3 Infra and Rail Extension Deployment Production Standard out for voteApproval

The IFC 4.3 Infra Extension Deployment project and the IFC Rail Project teams are asking the Standards Committee to consider and approve as a Production Standard the output from their coordinated projects. Voting closes on 20th October 2021. These Projects have harmonized and validated IFC 4.3 for Roads, Railways, Bridges, Earthworks, Geotechnics, Ports & Waterways. This will deliver IFC 4.3 as an official buildingSMART production standard which will be made available to implement and use by the industry at large. The two main objectives of these projects are: 1. Validation of the Production Standard schema in accordance with the bSI Process based on test-cases implemented and tested in collaboration with software vendors. 2. Harmonization of taxonomies and property set definitions across the domains (Road, Rail, Bridge, Ports & Waterways). Both objectives serve the same common goal: to deliver a refined IFC schema and documentation with harmonized property sets to be submitted to bSI for SC voting to become a Production Standard.

22nd June 2021IFC Tunnel Expert Panel July 05, 2021, 02:00 PM CESTDevelopment

Part of the next wave of Infrastructure domain projects that seek to extend IFC beyond the upcoming IFC 4.3 release. IFC Tunnel will introduce an IFC schema extension for underground construction engineering and operating systems management. It will also enhance common elements for all infrastructure domains, in particular the geotechnical domain in a soil-structure interaction context. The project is developing rapidly and is benefitting from the strong support of the International Tunnelling Association. On July 5th at 14:00 CEST, The Project Team will host the 3rd Expert Panel Meeting of the IFC-Tunnel project. The Team will present the first outcomes of Phase 2 with a focus on the basic concepts such as Coordinate Reference Systems, Geometry Representations, and Spatial Structure. The event will also include a brief update on the Taxonomy developments conducted by the three domain-expert groups: Geotechnics, Excavation & System. Click the link to register!

22nd June 2021Infra Deployment Expert Panel Jun 23, 2021, 02:00 PM CESTApproval

The pioneering effort to extend IFC into the domain of Infrastructure is now nearing completion. The Infra Extension project seeks to harmonise and validate IFC 4.3 for Roads, Bridges, Earthworks, Geotechnics, Ports & Waterways. There is close collaboration with a similar effort within the IFC Rail Project and both Projects are working hard to deliver IFC 4.3 as an official buildingSMART production standard which will be made available to implement and use by the industry at large. On June 23rd at 14:00 CEST the Project Team will present the results of the endeavour to validate IFC4.3 before its general publication and implementation. As part of the buildingSMART standards process, we seek to ensure a broad international consensus for our development work is maintained. As experts in your field, this is an opportunity to analyse and critique our work. Following this event, we will analyse your feedback and use it to help us proceed with the next stage in the approvals process to have IFC4.3 published as an official buildingSMART production standard.

The FM and openBIM project team are close to finalising their detailed project plan. Please follow the link to review the current version. The objectives of the project are: 1. Representing the FM industry in developing openBIM and the ecosystem of digital twins. 2. Deliver an FMIR and FMIDM/H standard based on the ISO41000 series that will make automation of handover/transfer and revision of data more accessible for FM. 3. Deliver, based on 2., an FMCDE standard that will increase real estate value by 2%, bring down FM failure costs by 5% and simplify FM services processes.
