Owners, Architects, Engineers and General Contractors: Are you having difficulties receiving building documentation information that meets your project’s needs? USIBD is here to help.

Building Documentation Professionals: Are you having difficulties interpreting solicitations and experiencing a level playing field during bidding? USIBD is here to help.

We are proud to announce the public review of our draft Request For Qualifications (RFQ), 3D Imaging Specification, Level Of Accuracy (LOA) Specification, Request For Proposal (RFP), and their associated user guides for public review. During the next 4 weeks we are looking for feedback from all industries and professions that have an interest in the building documentation industry.

We would like to thank CSI (Construction Specification Institute), AGC BIM Forum, Building Smart Alliance, CyArk, SPAR Point Group, FARO, LIDAR News, and the countless building documentation professionals donating their time to develop the building documentation industry.
