Developing New BIM Norms for Building Construction – Videos

BuildingSMART Finland has supplemented open building information modeling (BIM) guidelines in a project that is a part of the national KIRA-digi program. The project has published its first version of the new norms.

The new classification for architectural, structural, and MEP BIMs are available for download as Excel files (in Finnish) at
