The National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) announced that its Building Information Management (BIM) Council, partners, industry experts, and members have been working hard to complete the core modules of the next version of the National BIM Standard-United States (NBIMS-US).

This September, NBIMS-US V4 will be unveiled at NIBS' Building Innovation 2023 (BI2023) conference in Washington, DC. AC Powell, JD, CPS, president and CEO of NIBS, commented:

“The NBIMS-US consensus process includes both public comment and member voting. NBIMS-US V4 is a consensus-based standard, and we need, want, and welcome industry input.”

The NIBS BIM Council recently held its All Members Spring Meeting event. There the council presented a number of modules nearing draft ballot status to be released to the NBIMS-US Project Committee (PC).

Per a press release, the NBIMS PC ballot comment period and public review opens June 8, and is scheduled to run through July 6.

All comments submitted during the ballot comment period will be discussed and resolved during the July 18 virtual NBIMS PC comment resolution meeting.

The NBIMS PC ballot voting period will commence on August 7 and runs through September 1.

The BIM Council will present NBIMS-US V4 content at the BI2023 conference, which takes place September 5-7 at the Washington Hilton.

Membership with the BIM Council is required to participate in voting on content and ratifying the standard. Industry stakeholders may visit the BIM Council website for more information and become a NIBS member by May 10 to participate in the review and approval of NBIMS-US V4.

NIBS, a non-profit, non-governmental organization, brings together labor and consumer interests, government representatives, regulatory agencies, and members of the building industry to identify and resolve problems and potential issues in the built environment.
