Creating a Better Built Environment

Our Vision

Widespread use of openBIM to reduce risk, reduce waste and be more productive

Our vision is to have an Australasian building and construction industry that collaboratively shares and maintains information about facilities and infrastructure in a manner that optimises the quality and economy of regulatory approval, design, construction and operation of the built environment.

Our mission is to work with key Australian and New Zealand government and industry leaders, to proactively facilitate the use of open standards, collaborative processes and integrated practices that will:

  • improve all built facilities and infrastructure projects throughout their life cycle,
  • increase the value achievable from investments in the built environment, and
  • enhance opportunities for economic growth.

BuildingSMART Australasia drives industry uptake of technologies to facilitate these goals, providing promotion, implementation and education programs, while also contributing to the technical standards development work of buildingSMART International.
