    BuildingSMART International describes itself as the industry body driving the digital transformation of the built-asset industry, committed to the creation and adoption of open standards and solutions for infrastructure and buildings. While the buildings sector has been relatively well served by buildingSMART’s Industry Foundation Class (IFC) standards for more than 10 years, the infrastructure industry has had limited support. A program of developments under the buildingSMART InfraRoom is preparing new schemas for roads, bridges, ports, and waterways and tunnels, with the RailRoom preparing a new schema for rail working on the harmonization of the common asset types, testing, and deployment project. Autodesk has supported the development of the new schemas that are scheduled for release in 2021. This presentation will highlight the InfraRoom projects, industry engagement activities, and some early concept implementations of schemas within Autodesk software.
