Integrating BIM and FM: Status, Case Study and Opportunities

BIM has already had a significant impact on the A/E/C industries. The use of BIM related to the operational aspect of buildings, however, is still in its infancy. This webinar consists of three components: the first discusses major issues associated with BIM and FM; the second is a case study presentation of a successful design-construction-FM collaboration; and the third a Q+A session between presenters and attendees.

Issues with BIM and FM:

  • Traditional approach to BIM information turnover to FM by the contractor
  • Recent enhancements of traditional approach using COBie to transfer data from BIM to FM systems
  • What does FM really need for improved building performance, and why traditional BIM models and COBie generally do not meet FM needs
  • How can this information be identified and generated during the design and construction process
  • How can this information be integrated with systems used by FM to manage building performance and use
  • How can this information be kept current and accurate over the life of a building

Case Study of a Successful Design-Construction-FM Collaboration:

  • Description of UCSF Medical Center and the role of design and construction collaboration
  • How BIM-FM was integrated on the UCSF Medical Center; What was done, how was it specified in contract, what tools and people were used
  • Examples of how improved BIM-FM integration and use of visualization software to support better building performance and sustainability
  • BIM/FM usage for existing buildings?

Turning Facilities into High-Performing Assets (And How to Pay for It)

Date: Thursday, April 12th, 2018
Time:
 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm CDT

Join us for a webinar that will help you understand the financing options available to fund energy efficiency projects, learn about the advantages & constraints for each financing option and the options to “sell” the project to leadership. Presented by Danny Roberts, Senior Associate, CPACE hosted by the IFMA’s Environmental Stewardship, Utilities & Sustainability (ESUS) Community.

Webinar Overview: Improvement projects come at an upfront cost, but not if you’re savvy in how you finance them.
