Information Fusion...Harnessing the "I" for Lifecycle Data Manipulation

IBI Group would like to present a solution that connects a BIM to an Asset Management System. This case study is focused on our office expansion where the assets within design model were cataloged and connected to a custom-built asset management system. The workflow harnesses OpenBIM technology allowing the end user to experience a virtual representation of the asset via mobile devices as well as a medium to socially interact with them. This data contains fused design information with records for maintenance along with social information identifying repair / replacements which can feed subsequent projects. Outline: 1) The value proposition of "data" 2) Fusing BIM with Asset Management 3) Connecting "social data" to the assets 4) Demonstration of an active instance of the system The focus here shifts from designing projects to manipulating information. Data is sourced by the users of the built (designed) objects, and this information is tapped to manipulate how and what we design. This is a bold shift in mentality...we are "designing DATA" and from that information we generate various outputs including drawings. Conventional design practices are being redefined by the Internet of Things (IoT), big data, 5G, and artificial intelligence (AI). On the forefront of innovation since the 1970’s, IBI Group has maintained its commitment to designing great places to live, work, learn, move and play through innovation, technology and creativity; and we know that leveraging emerging technologies to future-proof our design intent is paramount to our success. The way cities are built is shifting. The future? Smart Cities. How does the citizen’s experience fit into the picture? Let us show you.

A Complete Toolkit for Sustainable Design

Sustainable Building Design at the highest level requires a very in depth and fine-tuned design process. This process is scattered with tools, some within Revit or ArchiCAD, some independent. The search for the perfect tool is never over and the stakes are high. Today’s standards require more than BIM. This presentation documents our search for a comprehensive toolkit and provides solutions for complimentary tools to ArchiCAD to produce a well-rounded sustainable design workflow. Certification programs like LEED v4 and The Living Building Challenge have raised the bar for design teams to new levels. We are asked to understand more areas of building science such as product chemistry, computational fluid dynamics, embodied carbon and life cycle analysis. This requires out of the box thinking and a new toolkit that reaches into other disciplines and new technologies.
