BIMTalk is a wiki-style online BIM information portal centred on building design, construction, manufacturing and facilities management. It has been set up by members of the CIBSE BIM Steering Group, a voluntary association of individuals pooling their knowledge of BIM to try to fill a gap in general BIM information. But please be advised that nothing found here should be relied on as complete, accurate, reliable, balanced or up to date. If you have any comments on the information in BIMTalk or seek to amend or expand it, please contact the Administrator using the email link on the website. Comments and proposals are crucial to the ongoing development and improvement of BIMTalk and well written and evidenced contributions are especially welcomed. Please understand that no assurance is given that your contribution will be acted on or adopted or when either might occur.
