BIM Dictionary

The BIM Dictionary (hhtp://BIMdictionary.com/) is a resource for all to freely use. It includes hundreds of Dictionary Items: terms with their descriptions, abbreviations and synonyms. Each Dictionary Item has its own page so it can be easily referenced in documents and website

The BIM Dictionary provides a reliable resource for establishing a common understanding of frequently used terms across the Construction Industry. The BIM Dictionary connects hundreds of terms to their vetted descriptions and translations, and act as a peer-reviewed reference to online guides and tools.

As an ongoing project with more than 70 worldwide volunteers, the BIM Dictionary has the following objectives:

  • Provide an accessible, easy-to-use glossary of terms needed to discuss and promote digital innovation;
  • Provide a research-driven description of these terms according to clear selection, inclusion, and rejection rules;
  • Provide translations into many world languages to encourage – using common terms and descriptions - collaboration across markets;
  • Provide reliable reference material through peer-sourcing (as opposed to crowd-sourcing adopted by Wikipedia or similar) and peer-review;
  • Provide a resource for developing higher-level Knowledge Blocks (e.g. Competency Items) that require an interconnected set of Dictionary Items;
  • Provide an online resource for websites, blogs, digital tools and documents.

The BIM Dictionary project is part of the not-for-profit BIMe Initiative. For more information, please visit: http://BIMexcellence.org/.
