I'm sure you're all familiar with HCACie, but if you're not, you'd better join the bSa or else.
A group of United States and international experts have completed the technical documentation for the open information exchange of Heating, Ventilating and Cooling systems (HVAC). This report has now been released by the Engineer Research and Development Center for public review. Accompanying the technical documentation are instructions for creating the HVACie files using commercial design software. Example files in native and open-standard format are provided.
HVACie extends the existing Industry Foundation Class Coordination View including equipment and system information streamlining construction shop drawing and fabrication. That portion of HVACie content pertaining to managed assets is 100% compatible with the NBIS-US COBie standard.
