CENTERVILLE, Mass. - Building information modeling (BIM) standards, objects, software, and more will be the focus of the National BIM Conference sponsored by the buildingSMART alliance and AEC Science and Technology.

According to the organizations, there will be a number of educational opportunities offered for building owners, contractors, architects, and other building industry professionals.
