The National Institute of Building Sciences, 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 fall, NBIMS-US V4 will be unveiled at Building Innovation 2023 (BI2023) in Washington, DC. 

“The NBIMS-US consensus process includes both public comment and member voting,” said AC Powell, JD, CPS, President and CEO of NIBS. “NBIMS-US V4 is a consensus-based standard, and we need, want, and welcome industry input.” 

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

The BIM Council will present NBIMS-US V4 content at Building Innovation 2023. BI2023 takes place September 5-7, at the Washington Hilton.
