The BIM Dictionary is a resource for all to freely use. It includes hundreds of Dictionary Items: terms with their descriptions, abbreviations and synonyms. Each Dictionary Item has its own page so it can be easily referenced in documents and websites. The BIM Dictionary is part of the BIM Excellence Initiative and will expand through the efforts of Volunteer Supporters and Official Sponsors.
