ONUMA System - GSA Version

GSA Projects and BIMStorm BIMStorm and Onuma are in use on General Services Administration (GSA) projects. The Onuma team lead the use of Onuma in a complex portion of the GSA Saint Elizabeths project, which is the largest of the stimulus projects for GSA. Excel to BIM was used to rapidly and accurately populate thousands of square feet of space, and thousands of pieces of furniture and equipment. We cannot show the actual project, but will show the actual process. By learning how to BIMStorm we are teaching the industry how to support GSA projects.

The ONUMA System is part of the first version of the GSA BIM Guide.

Onuma GSA™ is customized to meet GSA BIM Guide requirements.

The following vendors are included in the appendix as the intiail group of software that went through a one year process of testing and validating that the output matches GSA BIM Guide requirements.
