Join Professional Development Manager Matt Rumbelow and International Interoperability expert Jon Mirtchin on a free webinar as they discuss the role IFC has played to now, and why IFC 4.3 is the game changer for Civil Infrastructure projects in particular.

Date: Thursday 29th February

Time: 2 – 3:30pm AEST


The introduction of IFC 4.3 (ratified as ISO 16739) will have profound implications for the BIM industry on the whole, and Civil Infrastructure projects in particular. IFC 4.3 will ensure greater interoperability among various BIM software, facilitating collaboration and data exchange across disciplines and contractors.

IFC 4.3 marks a significant step forward in the standardisation and evolution of BIM processes. For instance, IfcAlignment, is a key element of the IFC 4.3 standard, providing precise descriptions for longitudinal objects in infrastructure projects. This represents a significant step forward, enhancing the accurate portrayal of route lines within the standard.

Furthermore, the IFC standard provides functionality for object placement along alignment lines with precision in both horizontal and vertical dimensions. It supports distance determination along the alignment and offers functionality for precise kilometerage calculations along the route.

We will be answering industry questions such as:

  • What is BuildingSmart
  • What is IFC
  • Why is IFC important? And import to a civil engineer?
  • Does Autodesk support IFC?
  • Does IFC support civil engineering?
  • Which civil platforms support IFC?
