  1. 1. 6D- APPLICATION OF BIM IN FM Richard Archer Managing Director, DCWC(WA
  2. 2. SPEAKER PROFILE • Richard Archer is the managing director of Donald Cant Watts Corke (WA) and a national Group Board member of DCWC. He is the BIM functional specialist for DCWC. • Richard is a quantity surveyor and has over 35 years’ experience in the construction industry in WA in roles that have included quantity surveying, project management, facilities management and risk management. • He has a keen interest in BIM and its application in quantity surveying, project management and facilities management, and in particular the potential for BIM to aid in the integration of construction project activities and to enhance opportunities to better manage buildings throughout the operational phases of their lifecycle.• Richard is a graduate of Curtin University with qualifications in quantity surveying and business. He is a past president and current councilor of the WA chapter of the Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors.
  3. 3. TRADITIONAL FACILITIES MANAGEMENT Facilities Management is an integrated approach to operating, maintaining, improving and adapting the building’s infrastructure in order to create an environment that strongly supports the primary objects of the organisation. Traditional Software used for Facilities Management:
  4. 4. FACILITIES MANAGEMENT AND BIM 85% of the lifecycle cost of a facility occurs after construction is completed. The Focus of Implementation of BIM into FM is to create and reuse consistent and useful digital information BIM offers the Facility Manager accurate timely, relevant information that is easily accessed by all ‘relevant parties’. Providing access to the same data improving collaboration and communication within the Project Team.
  5. 5. WHERE DOES FM FIT INTO THE PROCESS? FM Objectives FM Team FM Systems
  6. 6. THE D IN BIM Building Information Modelling comprises various Dimensions and Levels of Development, or Design (LOD). Dimension Description Level of Development 3D 3 Dimensional image comprising of the Length x Width x Height. LOD 100 – 500 4D Time related / programming LOD 300 and above 5D Cost Related / Extracting Quantities LOD 300 and above 6D Facilities Management LOD ‘X’ nD Any other dimensions the BIM operator would like to incorporate into the model. LOD ‘X’
  7. 7. THE D IN FM The D in FM is not about the LOD, but the Data. Knowledge Information Data
  8. 8. BENEFITS OF IMPLEMENTING BIM BIM Creates: • Easily obtainable information relating to specific objects • A digital document trail, capturing the developments and transformation of the project • BIM Enables the Facilities Manager to gain easy access to; o Equipment Information o Dynamic Data Warning o Energy Savings o Intelligent Fire Escape Routes o Space Management o Intuitive Software o Interoperability
  9. 9. OBSTACLES TO IMPLEMENTING BIM • FM Involvement • FM Objectives • Legacy Systems • Software expense and complexities • Lack of Platform Agnostic Solutions • Cost/Benefit • Management and ownership of the model
  10. 10. RECOMMENDATIONS • Architects, Engineers, Designers, & Contractors should engage to develop a complete lifecycle solution. • Continue on the track of a National BIM Standard to drive adoption. • Focus on BIM Integration and understanding from a top down approach. • Select and engage consultants that are able to assist the owner as a third party and does not have a stake in the project. For BIM to FM Success:
  11. 11. EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES Cloud Computing • Cloud Computing is where most products are being developed with this in mind. • The Cloud provides a flexible external solution for hosting and processing. • Some IT professionals are still against these technologies due to security concerns. The majority have embraced these technologies.
  12. 12. Mobile & RFID Technology • Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is a wireless noncontact system that transmits information from a tagged object to a scanning device. • RFID offers facilities managers a means to tag and track assets. • The other advantage is to tag assets behind walls, under floors, or above ceilings while combining mobile technologies can help facility managers see these items while in the space. EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES
  13. 13. Augmented Reality (VR) Augmented Reality is already being Implemented using geospatial Information to associate model, location and equipment. EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES
  14. 14. Energy & Sensor Technology • Another large ROI for the owner is real-time energy analysis for the knowledge of actual vs. design in their building. • To watch energy usage to predict when equipment might have to be serviced or adjusted. EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES • As sensors improve energy software is looking at gaining real-time feedback
  15. 15. 3D Printing of Components Body Parts Guns Why not FM components? EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES
  16. 16. YOUBIM – BIM TO FM • Incorporation of any changes to facilitate into the model • Portal for general maintenance and facility management • Tie BMS system to FM tool • Remote access for tenants, FM/tech, operations managers etc
  17. 17. YOUBIM – BIM TO FM YouBIM extracts all BIM graphics and meta data into a platform agnostic database and cloud based FM solution. BIM and Fabrication Models
  18. 18. YOUBIM – BIM TO FM Once all the unique data sources are all married together inside the YouBIM cloud, this data is ported over to the owners Asset Management platform of choice. Traditionally this process would take weeks of effort and was seriously error prone due to the amount of people involved but with this process it happens seamlessly with a very limited amount of "human" time involved at all. Translation of Data from YouBIM to Asset Management platform(s) (Maximo, Archibus, etc.)
  19. 19. YOUBIM – BIM TO FM Once YouBIM is deployed with the online navigation of the facility, connecting the virtual representative geometry inside the navigation model to the actual equipment the geometry represents allows the facility operation technicians to remotely access that equipment's controls to inspect its performance or to make adjustment all from their desk. Tie BMS system to YouBIM to associate 3D model to existing BMS functionality
