Chicago, Illinois (March 21, 2013) – Plumbing engineering and design professionals are increasingly using Building Information Modeling (BIM) in their work.

To ensure the National BIM Standard–United States™ (NBIMS–US™) accurately references their needs, the American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE) recently signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the National Institute of Building Sciences buildingSMART alliance™.

“ASPE is thrilled to be offered the opportunity to join the other organizations involved in the buildingSMART alliance in helping to improve the already impressive and valuable National BIM Standard–US™,” says Jim Kendzel, MPH, CAE, Executive Director/CEO of ASPE.

“Our members are directly engaged in the use of building information modeling, and we are committed to contributing to the standards process and ensuring that the national standard meets the needs of plumbing engineers and designers."

Autodesk, the Revit Software publisher has a Revit-BIM website for facility owners;

Download the free BIM & Revit tools (listed below) from the Autodesk "Owners" website.

While the Bradley BIM Team was building its 1000 Revit Family Library, Bradley surveyed and tested Bradley Revit models with architects, engineers, contractors, owners and their respective associations. Bradley emphasized both efficient Revit modeling techniques and embedding data (Revit parameters) into the models. We documented these processes in the Bradley BIM FAQs Page.

The Bradley BIM Blog lists many of our stakeholders in the (Revit) BIM Industry Links:

The original Bradley Revit Parameters were built for scheduling, extraction and tagging. Bradley realized the embedded data (parameter values, types & formatting) would undergo regular manipulation. Now, Revit BIM data has become the focus of Bradley's 1000 free, pre-built Revit family components.
