KFA has followed the evolution of intelligent building modeling technology for over a decade. During the 1990’s we developed academic programs using advanced modeling products, produced a Triforma white paper for Bentley Systems, evaluated the maturity and scalability of BIM systems for the Spallation Neutron Source project at Oak Ridge National Lab, and assisted Revit Technology in market research and feature prioritization prior to their initial product release.
KFA has used its experience with using COBie to standardize data migration between various systems that support the design/build out phase to facilities management. As a result of years refining our approach to using COBie standards, we have developed several tools to help process data i.e. the COBie Validator® and Product Data Manager®.
