Abstract : For Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology to be successful, it must be consistently applied across many projects, by many teams. The National Building Information Model Standard United States (NBIMS-US) has begun to deliver standards that allow teams to consistently deliver open-standard building information. The contents of this standard describe the format and quality of information to be delivered. Software configuration guides and object templates can assist users of BIM technology to more easily meet both the format and quality requirement of NBIMS-US. The purpose of this report is to define the requirements for and document the creation of a library of building components. The components included in this report reflect the contents of common BIM models for a duplex apartment, office building, and medical clinic building that have been previously published. This common object library description may serve as a reference for those implementing national BIM standards and for future research projects.
