why we're different

Central to our mission statement is OpenBIM. We bring our heritage as architects, academics and software engineers to solve complex BIM challenges. Our commitment to OpenBIM began back in 2007 when co-founder Steve Lockley opened up the way for developers to free proprietary BIM data as IFC , so that the collaboration and inclusiveness referred to in the BuildingSMART definition could be realised. 

Xbim’s ethos is to actively discourage siloed ways of working and enable open, accessible, collaborative, and altruistic working.
