||With the growing trend in the building industry to usesoftware tools able to handle Building Information Model (BIM), staffs are more and more confronted with workflows conflicts. In order to improve their efficiency, up-to-date techniques for dealing with BIM sharing are required. Attempting to address this issue, a web services platform, especially optimized to deal with the already well-recognized Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) open standard, has been developed.This article describes the platform (architecture, software components, technologies), specially emphasizing on the strategies envisaged for collaborative work support. To illustrate resulting benefits for the building industry,it also gives an overview of the work already performed on a platform service dedicated to dynamic thermal simulation.
