Presentation to North West Regional BIM Hub

  1. 1. BIM4FM: Building Information “Medicine”? Mark Whittaker, BIFM North Wednesday 25th September 2013
  2. 2. 2 | Building Information “Medicine” Agenda – BIM from a FM perspective • Current Ailments • Diagnosis • Cure • Prognosis
  3. 3. 3 | Building Information “Medicine” “No, we don’t have any accurate asset information” “who decided to put that light fitting up there?” “did they never think how it was going to be maintained?” “building lifecycle? We don’t think that far ahead” “I wish the architect had spoken to me when this building was constructed” “Our budgets are being slashed as they are” Current ailments
  4. 4. 4 | Building Information “Medicine” Current State?
  5. 5. 5 | Building Information “Medicine” BIM4FM Survey
  6. 6. 6 | Building Information “Medicine” 65% had heard of BIM 61.7% believe BIM can support FM 35.3% do not understand BIM capabilities 26.5% state they have used it‟s capabilities 63.2% unsure if their company had plans to use will use BIM in the near future “misunderstanding within FM about BIM & capabilities” “BIM more than 3D modeling programme” “confusion on what actually constitutes a BIM project” BIM4FM Results
  7. 7. 7 | Building Information “Medicine” “BIM provides opportunities for better information management” Benefits:  Lifecycle management (74.5%)  Improve efficiencies (68.1%)  Better reporting data (62%) Concerns:  Cost (50.5%)  Integration with current CAFM systems (50.5%)  Training (34.5%)  Data management (33%)  Time (32.5%) “Need to support, educate & inform the industry” BIM4FM Results
  8. 8. 8 | Building Information “Medicine” “There is a perception that FM as a profession has been slow to engage with the development of BIM” “BIM must not be ignored by the FM community” Gareth Tancred, Chief Executive Officer BIFM Industry Views
  9. 9. 9 | Building Information “Medicine” “I believe that FM are still getting to grips with BIM they have been a bit bamboozled by the techies on this and cannot see the woods through the trees. That‟s why Government Soft Landings is so important as this is the process that really interlinks with BIM for FM” Deborah Rowland Head of Facilities Management Policy & Strategy, Government Property Unit Industry Views
  10. 10. 10 | Building Information “Medicine” “Awareness, Acceptance, Action…For FM I believe we are still firmly in the awareness phase, and there is lots of work still to be done to reach a full level of awareness of the potential benefits” “various industry bodies and especially the BIM4FM group need to focus on raising awareness.” “The other thing that I think may be holding us back is the lack of standards and standardisation within the FM industry” Kath Fontana, Managing Director, BAM FM Industry Views
  11. 11. 11 | Building Information “Medicine” “Remember BIM is not just a 3D model with information embedded; it is the information and the result of the useful data that is generated and more importantly transferred that FM‟s will benefit from” Jo Harris , Sustainable Buildings Group BSRIA Industry Views
  12. 12. 12 | Building Information “Medicine” “One concern I have with the use of BIM in FM is keeping the model live….I struggle to see the return on investment in this sector” (Maintenance Manager, Tesco) “information is knowledge when it is accurate and up to date. Keeping records up to date can however become a low priority” (Gordon Parker, Coretex Int) “Clients need Vision - Only last week I was sat with one of our large retail clients who stated 'Frankly I don't care if our contractors use BIM or not - get me my completion certificate on time, but what they use in this process I don't care.„ “ (Martin Ward, isite, Styles & Wood) Industry Views
  13. 13. 13 | Building Information “Medicine” “According to Air Conditioning and Mechanical Contractors‟ Association (AMCA), BIM has the capacity to cut facilities management costs by 30 percent, significantly reducing the ongoing management and maintenance of some of Australia‟s largest buildings and industrial facilities. “Australia is leading the way in terms of having the vast majority of major contractors, sub-contractors, equipment and materials suppliers already embrace BIM” Industry Views
  14. 14. 14 | Building Information “Medicine”  Investment  Strategy  Training  Collaboration  Longer Term Visioning Diagnosis
  15. 15. 15 | Building Information “Medicine” Bridging the gap:  Engage  Educate  Inform  Publicise Cure
  16. 16. 16 | Building Information “Medicine”  Collaboration  Full asset management data  3-D modelling to assist in modifications  Improves (re)tender accuracy  “Ensure value is achieved in the operational lifecycle of an asset” GSLs achieved in the operational lifecycle of an asset Key Benefits 2FM
  17. 17. 17 | Building Information “Medicine” The BIM agenda will only gain greater ground if  FM professionals need convincing of the cost and service benefits  Key message of the benefits of alignments between design & construction to the building end users.  Greater long term strategic visioning of lifecycle/asset management & less focus on the data to day issues.  System integration to existing (& utilised!) CAFM systems.  The fact, there is no alternative! Prognosis
