Webinar – Integrating BIM and FM: Status, Case Study and Opportunities

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2019

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: major issues associated with BIM and FM, a case study presentation of a successful design-construction-FM collaboration, and a Q+A session between presenters and attendees.

When: July 16th, 2019 @ 1:00-2:00 pm CDT

Part 1: 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

Part 2: 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?

Part 3: Q+A session between presenters and attendees

Presenters: Paul Teicholz and Bruce Mace
