International Standards for IFC Rail & IFC Road

IFC Rail&Road

Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) represent a data standard for digital building models. In the context of Building Information Modeling (BIM), a consistent data exchange is regarded as key factor for project success.

The objective of this research project is representing German interests in the development of international standards for IFC Rail and IFC Road. The project includes a close collaboration with experts in the fields of rail and road. Thus, suggestions concerning modifications and further developments of IFC Rail and IFC Road are made.
Project partners are TU Munich and AEC3 Deutschland GmbH. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure.
