What do we do?

Information about our environment is key to unlocking the many challenges that we encounter.

At buildingSMART UK & Ireland (bSUKI), we help asset owners and the entire supply chain work more efficiently and collaboratively through the entire project and asset lifecycle, through better interoperability.

We are the UK & Ireland Chapter of buildingSMART International. Other global chapters can be found here.

We are responsible for gathering industry requirements and representing the UK & Ireland’s needs at international level. This is essential when standards are being developed to ensure we are all catered for.
