Incorporating BIM into Lifecycle Management
There has been a lot of advancement when it comes to adopting new technologies onsite. The AEC industry is embracing new modes of information sharing and collaboration. Some companies are adapting quickly whereas others are finding it difficult to make the jump. This growing divide makes right now an important time for construction professionals to start looking into emerging trends in technology and how these trends can help the industry move forward. Today’s architect, engineer and construction manager must be able to deal with rapid pace of technological change, an interconnected world and complex problems that require multidisciplinary solutions. This presentation will discuss an assessment of the industry’s present state and then focus on emerging trends that will impact the industry. Some of the trends that will be discussed include integrating BIM with Facility Management, use of mobile technologies onsite to capture relevant project data, rapid emergence of 3D scanning, drones, and augmented reality (wearable technologies) and the changing nature of how we consume and analyze information to better manage risks while maximizing value and performance through intelligent use of data. The presentation will also focus on a case study of Columbia University and how the University has implemented BIM and integrated it within its different departments of Asset management, Real Estate and Space Planning Management. The Manhattanville program is a 17-acre site that Columbia University is developing into 6.8 million square feet of space for teaching, research, underground parking, and support services. It features new state-of-the-art research facility and academic buildings, in addition to cultural, recreational, and commercial space. The presentation will describe the implementation of the University’s strategic vision of incorporating Building Information Modeling into its processes and operations and to provide the University with a sustainable O&M and lifecycle cost savings.
From Design Coordination to Building Turn-over: BIM 360 Build Helps Connect the Dots
Tracking of equipment assets is nothing new to most construction project sites. Whether done through computer applications like Excel, through good’ole pen & paper or the tried and true memory bank; it’s an antiquated process in today’s technology, cloud-driven world. What’s more, the idea of “what else can be done?” is being asked more and more. Thankfully, with cloud services such as BIM 360 Build, project teams can move beyond the stagnate limitations of traditional asset tracking & provide a much more rounded delivery from cradle to grave. What if you could track assets out of your building coordination model? What if you could generate RFI’s out of your tracking model? What if it all resided on top of your project documentation? And…..what if it all existed at the touch of your finger, on your mobile phone or tablet? BIM 360 Build does all of this and more! Within this presentation, we’ll discuss how you can leverage the cloud-computing application BIM 360 Build to deliver a more robust experience for both project site teams, facilities management and of course, the owner. We’ll look at connecting MEP coordinated models to BIM 360 Build, tracking assets & utilizing checklists and tasks to perform QA/QC, round-trip it back to Navisworks for status visualization and then set up for implementation into facilities management services such as BIM 360 Ops.
Mobile Technology: It’s Driving the Transformation to Modern Facility Management
Research shows that facilities teams spend, on average, nearly one hour per day searching for information they need to complete work orders. This translates to overtime costs, lower productivity, unnecessary repairs, and a lack of emergency preparedness. Add to that, the percentage of workers with significant amounts of building knowledge who are rapidly nearing retirement and suddenly it becomes clear that it’s time to expand your toolkit to include technology. Managing facilities information with paper and spreadsheets—warranties, maintenance logs, equipment lists, as-builts, and more—quickly gets out of hand. For the range of challenges facility teams face, existing tools (like a CMMS) simply don’t go far enough. But modern mobile technology is set to transform the way facility managers work: from how they respond to emergencies and complete work orders to how they conduct onboarding and compliance inspections. What about catastrophes? Is your facilities team fully ready to respond instantly? Only 14% are, according to a 2017 survey. Causes include not having information digitized, not having it organized or searchable, and not being able to access it on mobile devices. What does it mean to your organization to be faced with a catastrophe every two years that costs $500,000? In this presentation, audience members will learn how modern facility professionals manage their information—in the cloud and with the use of mobile devices. Attend this session to learn how organizing essential building information in a cloud-based platform boosts productivity for facility managers and their team, improves customer service for building occupants and accelerates emergency responsiveness.
