Conceptual BIM Ontology

This ontology represents the ‘conceptual glue’ that connects all conceptual components together (e.g. dictionaries, classifications, taxonomies, models,and frameworks – refer to Conceptual Hierarchy) as well as the knowledge interactions (push/pull) between BIM players, their deliverables and requirements.

The Conceptual BIM Ontology is intended for human-human communications and is continuously evolving. It will be formalised in the near future – as new specialised talents join the team – as a Web Ontology Language (OWL).
