9.01 Best Practices in BIM for Facility Management: Meaningful Findings From the BIM FM Consortium
Thursday, April 14, 2016 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Venue: JW Marriott
Room: 312

The success of building information modeling for building delivery is fueling the push toward the use of BIM for facility management. Building owners are now starting to reuse the models and information created during design and construction to streamline their own operations. But often the models resulting from BIM building design and construction processes simply do not contain the information necessary for building operations. This session explains how this problem can be addressed by recognizing the issue and asking the right questions. Explore the immense opportunity that exists for facilities teams interested in strategies to help them develop BIM guidelines, workflows, data and methods of integrating building information models into a full building portfolio life cycle. Take a close look at practical tips for modeling and data attribution developed by the BIM FM Consortium, which will enable building owners and operators to make the transition from theory to practice in the use of BIM for facility management.
