Abstract: This paper presents an automated code checking system Pristine that enables quick and easy compliance assessment and assists designers in finding potential problems early. There has been an extensive amount of research conducted internationally in the area of automated code compliance for the Architecture, Engineering and the Construction (AEC) industry. There is an increased uptake of building information modeling (BIM) and the Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) open standard data model for interoperability due to a recent productivity improvement and innovation in the AEC industry. The availability of high performance personal computers, efficient web-based technology, and new initiatives in legal knowledge representation modeling should make the development of commercial compliance checking systems more viable than ever. However, the quest for an industry agreed unified approach seems to be far from over. The system allows for checking of model for different model attributes using the ifcXML schema which is created using either ArchiCAD or Revit architectural soft wares. Once the checking is completed, the interactive reporting interface offers a viewing option of the validated file.
