    Central to the 2016 target is the COBie data format that helps to organise and present information about new and existing facilities.

    COBie files come in the form of XML spread sheets and are delivered to the client in four data drops during the construction delivery stage. This requires careful management.

    During 2013, 11 major tier 1 contractors took part in stage 2 of COBie trials in order to test different technologies and workflows that produce COBie outputs and identify potential issues. 

    Why attend?

    This event examines the solutions to some of those issues in order to successfully deliver COBie. It will include case studies from the trial and include best practice perspectives from the US.
