IFC Model Development

IFC Model Development is comprised of a set of projects, either developing Extension Models or working on longer term aspects of IFC model evolution and use. Extension Models are adding on to the domain coverage of the IFC Object Model, and they use the platform of IFC2x and will be issued on completion. Extensions are developed by Extension Projects (dedicated and self-financed) with guidance and quality assurance from IAI technical groups and officers. Eventually, the Extension Models will feed into next IFC platform release (expected in no less than 2-3 years time).
