The ontology-modelling approach has been recognised as one possible remedy to address the prevalent heterogeneity in information exchange in the Architecture, Construction, Engineering and Facility Management (AEC/FM) industry. A plethora of domain ontologies exist, each designed to fulfil the specific information requirements of a certain use case within the AEC/FM domain. Recent published work proposes a central ontology termed Building Topology Ontology (BOT) which aims at capturing frequently occurring design patterns in domain ontologies. This paper presents a work in progress towards proposing alignments of this central ontology to five domain ontologies from AEC/FM domain. The proposed alignments are evaluated in terms of consistency of the resulting ontology. Finally conclusions are drawn on how a possible redesign of the BOT ontology could stipulate further reuse.
