  2. 2. 2Winn W GomezBIM at Oger International Abu Dhabi:Brief LookBIM Project Management• Strategy and process development• Defining BIM requirements and Specifications• Multi-disciplinary Coordination• Managing BIM Processes and workflowsModel Production & Utilization• Architecture, Structure & MEP Model Authoring• Engineering analysis• Building Performance SimulationConstruction Management• Site Logistics and Construction Sequencing• BIM to field Deployment and supervision• Onsite Verification• Production of As-Built ModelsAuditing & Quality Assurance• BIM Quality Checks
  3. 3. 3Winn W GomezBIM: Project HighlightsAl Mafraq Hospital Abu Dhabi – MEP Modeling and Coordination
  4. 4. 4Winn W GomezState of BIM in the Middle East• Findings from BSAME 2010 survey– Why Companies do not use BIM• Have not been asked to – 62%• Don’t know anyone who uses BIM –43%• Interested in BIM , but don’t know how– 41%– Drivers for using BIM in the Future• If it were mandated on projects – 59%• Increased availability of skilledprofessionals – 56%• Increased availability of industrystandards – 57%
  5. 5. 5Winn W GomezCurrent State of BIM in the Middle East• A rapid and uncontrolled demand forBIM.• Governments and owners showinginterest.• Contractors & Consultants seeking toquickly adopt BIM.• No clear guidance or regulations.• Technology driven BIM; little emphasis onstrategy, process or Standards
  6. 6. 6Winn W GomezCurrent State of BIM in the Middle East• BIM now mandated on majorprojects across the MiddleEast– Abu Dhabi Airport MidfieldTerminal Building– Al Mafraq Hospital , AbuDhabi– K. Abdulaziz Center forWorld Culture, Saudi Arabia– Masdar City, Abu Dhabi– Louvre Museum, Abu Dhabi– Guggenheim, Abu Dhabi– Qatar Rail, Doha
  7. 7. 7Winn W GomezMarket Outlook : Hurdles• Technical– Problem:– Costs of software, implementation.– Interoperability– Solution:• Think about “ The Costs of not using BIM”• Create a culture of collaboration.• Legal– Problem:– Current Contracts reflect old methodsof relationships between stakeholders– Solution:• Enhance Contracts to ensure ‘ FullStakeholder collaboration”• Focus on problem solving, not ‘pointingfingers’
  8. 8. 8Winn W GomezMarket Outlook : Hurdles• Culture Change– Problem:– If project fails, “ BIM doesn’t work”– Solution:• Think about people/process/policy, not justadopt BIM Technology• Educate and create Internal BIM culture.• Education– Problem:– Technology providers providing onlytechnology training– Restricted management support fortraining requirements– Solution:• Complement new Graduate’s BIM tech skillswith your team’s project experience.• Support your BIM Manager’s Training Plan• Learn and Help others Learn• Interact with Local User Groups/ Workshops etc.
  9. 9. 9Winn W GomezMarket Outlook• Governments and clients will drive uptake withmandated BIM, with increased interest in FM.• Construction Companies and Clients will besaving money• The next 5 years is about Cloud, social and mobiletechnologies• Change in the Fundamental Alignment of howOwners, architects, engineers and contractorswork, with new legal and contractual frameworksemerging.• Increase in offsite prefabrication will impactschedules.• Emergence of Round Table networks, events andteams to support adoption of BIM.
  10. 10. 10Winn W GomezBest Practices• Set clear standards andguidance for BIM management,including implementation,monitoring building lifecycleperformance.• Up skill workforce– Design Management, ProjectManagement & SafetyManagement using BIM• Address the limitations inherentin collaborative working due totraditional procurementmethods.
  11. 11. 11Winn W GomezBest Practices: People• Include BIM Processes in educationin Colleges and Universities• Start courses imparting BIMeducation for working professionals• Develop Career paths for increasingyour BIM knowledge.• Adopt worldwide best practices andlearn to unlearn, while benefitingfrom using BIM.• Encourage the use of networkingevents to share experiences.• Stay informed…• Encourage feedback from workingprofessionals in developing BIMstandards and workflows.
