bSUKI Resources

buildingSMART UK develop resources to support the implementation of buildingSMART and COBie standards in the UK.

The following are resources developed between 2021 and 2017, they remain valuable for projects ongoing but terminology may have been superseded by recent developments.

“Client (appointing party) Exchange Information Requirements” are offered to support the preparation of EIRs for building and for infrastructure projects focused on both systems and product types. The pack includes a written report and a spreadsheet tool to document some key requirements. This was developed in a UKBIMA collaborative project in 2016-17.

“COBie for all” includes a review of the challenges raised relating to the use of COBie in infrastructure and worked examples of 5 specific cases.  

This was a collaborative project by a number of infrastructure partners including Transport for London (TfL) and Highways England (HE).

“COBie templates” illustrate the information required for specific component and product types as web-pages, COBie spreadsheets and IFC files. They were prepared to support the COBie pilot implementations in 2012.

“COBie property sets” summarise the additional property sets recommended in BS1192-4:2014 clause 7 for use with COBie in the UK.

The property sets are presented as web-pages and as buildingSMART Pet definitions in XML
