OBOS V1.0: Overview

An international standard for object developers.

​Version 1.0 November 2018

The intent of this BIM Object standard is to support the sector’s drive for a more efficient and defined way of working together. It provides a framework for the consistent creation, maintenance and use of BIM Objects along the building lifecycle.

The standard is designed as an open standard and utilises the buildingSMART IFC Schema to facilitate use of various proprietary authoring tools and their exchange with downstream applications. It complements a number of other existing industry resources, such as the NZ BIM Handbook, the NZ Asset Metadata standard as well as the soon-to-be-released Masterspec Property Selector.
