IFC, Cobie & Why the Autodesk / Trimble Interoperability Agreement Won’t Matter


IFC, Cobie, Masterformat, Uniformat, Omniclass are standard data architectures critical to efficient construction delivery.

That said, common terms, definitions , and data architectures are just one of several components of collaborative LEAN construction delivery.   Integrated Project Delivery, IPD and Job Order Contracting, JOC are proven collaborative construction delivery methods that deliver more projects on-time, on-budget, and to the satisfaction of all parties.

Until Owners require collaborative construction delivery and are capable of leading the shift toward built environment life-cycle management, all the technology in world will not make a difference.

The reason that BIM has stagnated in the U.S. and the U.K. is obvious….  culture change has yet to occur.
