An industry briefing for the HVAC, Facility Maintenance, and Building Services Industries.

The volume of building data and documentation is always growing. This presents daily challenges of data accuracy, awareness, and timely access, whilst increasing adoption of connected devices and cloud-based applications can multiply these problems.

An industry standard is required that will bring a uniform approach to how assets are classified, how asset related information is structured, and to facilitate locating the information that resides in various systems and applications.

Do you know about this new industry standard?

Are you aware of how you can take advantage of this new standard to enhance your operations using your existing applications?

Structuring Your Asset Information to Achieve Built Outcomes

VBIS

The Victorian Government has developed and funded an industry standard asset categorisation system and unified communication syntax called VBIS (Virtual Buildings Information System).

VBIS is an open and freely available standard which provides a classification structure and unique VBIS tag that acts as an asset identifier, along with a means to locate information related to specific assets that reside in multiple applications. VBIS works with commercial application vendors to allow adoption of the standard and become VBIS enabled.

In this 45 minute webinar, Carl Agar of A.G. Coombs alongside Dennis Dalla Costa will provide information about this new protocol and how you can best take advantage of it.
