The buildingSMART alliance™ (bSa) has been originally established to coordinate the profound constructive changes coming to the fragmented real property industry in North America. The BSA is a part of the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) which was established by the U.S. Congress in the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, Public Law 93-383.
As an interest group of the bSa, the New York City Metro BIM was formed to meet and network NYC Metro area industry professionals. Our focus is to guarantee lowest overall cost, optimum sustainability, energy conservation and environmental stewardship to protect the earth's ecosystem.
Our goal is open interoperability and full lifecycle implementation of building information models. This effort includes but is not limited to professionals from the design and construction fields, business, finance, geospatial technology, Information management technology, real estate development and all other related fields.
