bSA is part of the international BuildingSMART programme that has representation across the UK, Europe, North America, the Middle East and Far East. They are a leading association whose vision is to have a building and construction industry that collaboratively shares and maintains information about facilities and infrastructure in a manner that optimises the quality and economy of regulatory approval, design, construction and operation of the built environment.
“I am excited to be on the board, collaborating with likeminded professionals about a cause I am deeply passionate about. I’ve been working within the digital engineering and innovation space for the past three decades and genuinely want to help advance the purpose of bSA because I see the value open BIM can bring.”Sandra Lang, Director – Digital Engineering
bSA is advancing the industry by developing standards, tools and training to drive the adoption of openBIM – sharable project information that supports seamless collaboration for all project participants. It is helping to make building and infrastructure cheaper, greener, and more efficient, reducing risk and waste.
As part of her role on the working board, Sandra will provide her years of experience and leadership to help define initiatives, working groups around certain topics, training programs and events. In 2023, she was part of a working group and worked with existing board members on the development of an Asset Operations Handover Framework a project defining a standardised, but flexible, modular framework for documenting handover requirements for all facilities.
Sandra will be part of the BuildingSMART Australasia board for a period of 12-months ending in late 2024. She holds a Masters in global BIM Management with a Master Thesis that had a focus on openBIM management.
