I enjoyed making the rounds to the COBie + Revit community in the Bay Area this week; taking the opportunity to share my recent research into this topic with design and construction professionals at the Sacramento, East Bay, and San Francisco Revit user groups. My presentation focused on where COBie requirements intersect with BIM and then specifically how the Autodesk Revit Toolkit and Ideate BIMLink support managing this information.

If you are interested in learning more about this topic, here are some the links I shared during my presentation
