OpenBrIM is a modeling and development platform for building and bridge information definitions. These definitions may include information on planning, design, fabrication, construction and operation of a structure.
BrIM object definitions are to be standardized under the control of an independent industry consortium. The involvement of Federal Highway Administration, State DOTs, and all industry organizations is crucial to the success of OpenBrIM project.
