buildingSMART e.V. - SEMA is a member of BIM expert group

For many years, BIM has been a mainstay of the entire construction industry that pursues a lofty goal by means of the intelligent networking of all the participants in a construction project. The goal is to establish a continuous flow and exchange of information and uniform standards. BIM therefore has great potential to sustainably transform, and even revolutionise, the trade sector and the entire construction industry.

As a forward-looking software producer, SEMA has joined the official association of the BIM movement, buildingSMART e.V. One of the association's most important tasks and objectives is the “further develop-ment and standardisation of open exchange standards for software-independent exchange of information in BIM projects and the definition and standardisation of corresponding work processes”. Building-SMART e.V. provides a platform for networking and professional exchange on a national and international level.

A central goal of SEMA is nevertheless to continue to drive the networking process forward, as well as to simplify the provision and processing of data.

“Digitally supported communication between all partners in the construction industry provides the basis for processes to run smoothly among all participants, and helps us to build efficiently and cost-effectively, as well as avoid errors. We at SEMA help make our customers fit for the future with our developments. Mem-bership of the buildingSMART e.V. is therefore the next logical step to advance the BIM concept.” says Andreas Leix, Head Developer at SEMA.

SEMA is expecting its membership to provide further impetus for past and future developments within the scope of this subject area, and for the open exchange of data with the IFC interface.
