ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The Construction-Operations Building Information Exchange (COBie) project, published as a part of the U.S. national Building Information Model (BIM) standard earlier this year, is being implemented on major Corps of Engineers projects.

A recent collaboration between ERDC’s Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) and the Public Affairs Office (PAO) has resulted in the publication of a brief case study of the use of COBie at the Mark Center Project, a new federal office building complex in Northern Virginia that is host to more than 6,400 federal employees.

The article may be viewed at the National Institute of Building Sciences website, http://www.nibs.org/enews/0612_COE_COBie.html.
