Construction Operations Building Information Exchange or COBie – a spreadsheet data format that contains digital information about a building in as complete and as useful a form as possible. It is closely associated with building information modelling (BIM) approaches to design, construction, and management of built assets.
COBie doesn’t just collect data but even structures it, making it faster and easier to find needed information. This format is accessible and understandable to anyone and any organization. COBie also takes away from the client unnecessary problems and issues with construction software and other compatibility issues, as it uses a single format for reading .CSV or .XLS.
Nowadays, BIM helps not only to create 3D models but contribute to the interaction of various specialists. That’s why many organizations want to receive data in BIM COBie format suitable for subsequent operations. With Karno Energy you can incorporate data into models during design.
