    The IFC data open model is the industry standard to describe building and construction industry data. IFC is predominately used to share data/information between proprietary BIM tools.

    The use of IFC is often misunderstood and many BIM users struggle to fully federate models using it.

    This event will look at what IFC is, when and where is should be used, how it should be used effectively as well as incorporating practical examples by practitioners on how they use IFC to deliver integrated BIM.
