Semantic Building Blocks for 21st Century Building Engineering

October 2, 2009 - 12:00pm

The Building and Fire Research Laboratory (BFRL) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) works to advance innovation and competitiveness of the U.S. building and fire safety industries. This presentation will introduce some of the work at BFRL to improve the design, construction and operation of the built environment and to advance the semantic infrastructure for integrated project design and delivery. With this context established, the presentation will examine research challenges and next steps for developing reference information models, industry data dictionaries and rule libraries for multidisciplinary collaboration to improve building energy performance.
