The U.S. Institute for Building Documentation has released new standards for specifying contracts for as-built building-measurement capture. The documents were developed to complement the already-existing standards specifying 3D building-information-modeling level of development. These new standards enable owners and clients to have assurance that constructors are building with some level of accuracy. A user guide is available as well to help designers, contractors, and owners to clearly articulate the accuracy level and the means used to document existing conditions.
The documents are available for free download at the USIBD website until March 15, after which there will be a charge.
