Basler & Hofmann is now represented in the global Building Room Steering Committee of buildingSMART International

Basler & Hofmann has been a member of buildingSMART International since 2019. Since February 2020, we have been represented in the global Building Room Steering Committee. Gianluca Genova, Head of the Laboratory for Integrated Digital Working (IDA Lab) at Basler & Hofmann, was elected to the committee by 20 international chapters and members. The Building Room brings together a team of experts to develop open digital standards for the entire life cycle of buildings.


The Rooms at buildingSMART International are made up of groups of specialists who work together to create solutions and standards designed to improve the construction industry as a whole. Each of the eight expert groups focus on a specific thematic area . The aim of the Building Rooms is to develop open digital solutions for the entire life cycle of buildings, from design to maintenance.

“Being on the Steering Committee is a real opportunity for Basler & Hofmann to contribute our expertise in the area of integrated digital planning and construction at an international level and play an active role in shaping international standards. By working in close collaboration with international experts, we will also be able to keep our finger on the pulse when it comes to digital working”, declared Gianluca Genova, Head of the IDA Lab at Basler & Hofmann and new member of the Steering Committee. “BIM to field, BIM to FM, BIM to SIM and blockchain are just some of the topics we are currently working on in the Building Room”, he added.
