The standard for
UK COBie use is available for comment now at this address: http://drafts.bsigroup.com/Home/Details/53020. As it will
affect all our work for some time to come, I would urge people to read it,
comment and encourage others to engage in the process.
This is the only
chance we will get to make our voices heard on this!

This British Standard defines
a methodology for the transfer between parties of structured information
relating to Facilities including buildings and infrastructure. It defines
expectations during the design and construction “project” stage prior to handover
and acquisition and the subsequent “in-use” stage.
The aim of this standard is to aid the demand
side, including employers with portfolio managers, asset managers and facility
managers, to specify their expectations and information providers including the
lead designers and contractors to prepare concise and accessible information.
