IFC hub key features
IFC hub is an on-line IFC (ISO 16739) IFC4 compliant data server for your BIM projects (i.e. a BIM server or IFC server). It has a state of the art system architecture that underpins collaboration through concurrency. For the techies amongst you, dig and you will find the only optimistic replication capable server available in the market today. IFC hub is a product that connects users and systems to project information during the design, construction and operation of your project.
It looks after the integrity of your BIM data, ensures it is always highly available and supports your aspiration of maintaining an up-to-date non-proprietary digital record. IFC hub is full of technically unique capabilities that truly deliver the benefits of BIM including collaboration through concurrency (optimistic replication), trust through semantic reconciliation. It is fully ISO 16739 (IFC) compliant and being meta-model based we guarantee seamless support for all future IFC schema’s.
Mixed messages and false assumptions swirl around us and dilute the meaning of BIM; the “International Alliance for Interoperability” is re-branded buildingSMART and the central tenants of BIM are relegated leaving many scratching their heads wondering how benefits can be achieved. BIM Level 3 introduces the standards that will ultimately be key to realising the benefits, IFC hub is a BIM Level 3 ready BIM (IFC) server that uniquely meets the challenges of concurrent collaboration; not at the file level but rather the object level.
Storage and sharing of IFC data should be at the heart of any organisation seeking to accelerate away from the industry’s trailing edge. The benefits are many, we invite you to seize them today.
You need to address these issues to maintain or grow your customer base in an industry that has clearly stated its expectation to go BIM. You don’t want to spend all your time or money implementing IFC interoperability, not least because it diverts your attention from delivering great solutions and user experiences.
If this resonates then perhaps IFC hub is the solution, the platform assumes a relatively easy migration path from existing single-site applications to advanced multi-modal collaborative environments. It can accelerate your development towards compliance without it taking over all development activity.
BIM – what is it?
An organisation originally named the International Alliance for Interoperability now called buildingSMART are the worldwide authority driving the transformation of the built environment through creation & adoption of open, international standards. BIM is an acronym that has come to describe this initiative. The meaning of BIM has often been misrepresented and diluted but is commonly used to represent three separate but linked functions:

a bit about us
IFChub is a UK registered company offering IFC server technology to the AEC industry globally.
IFChub is the product of over 10 years research and development, it incorporates significant and unique intellectual property to deliver a comprehensive solution to the industry.
We believe that quality can never be compromised, our working practices support this from design through development and into testing.
Whilst the market is relatively nascent we understand the different customer needs and can flexibly offer our product from single months, years on a SaaS basis through to perpetuity with simple to understand flexible terms to suit our customers.
We will work with technology partners who like us believe in data collaboration, interoperability, concurrency and integrity.
IFC hub is a privately owned and operated company, we are not an open source project and firmly believe in achieving commercial stability to support the long-term choices of our customers.
We believe that IFC is more than just a data schema, we believe it is critical to achieving interoperability and not along traditional lines, rather we believe in concurrency and therefore high availability of data. We are therefore pioneering the use of “optimistic replication” in our IFChub product.
High availability is great but we know that in such environments you cannot ignore data quality and so we also promote semantic consistency to ensure that data remains consistent at all times.
Finally we are committed to delivering highly scalable solutions by understanding change (delta computation) created in 3rd party applications for which we supply plugin’s
