01.

BIM to BMS

Building Automation systems can be linked with our BIM Models, enabling facility managers a seamless control over their buildings which they can see using a 3D dashboard instead of just a conventional CMMS system.

02.

COBie Data

The BIM Models developed by Techture contain COBie (Construction Operations Building Information Exchange) parameters which are essential for utilizing the model for facility management.

03.

Asset Information Model

The information existing in an LOD 500 model of a facility contains every detail and documents about the components necessary for CAFM platforms to facilitate the maintenance of the building using that information.

BIM for O&M

The ever-expanding use of BIM process for design, analysis, construction planning, 4D coordination, and other construction phases provides a humongous resource full of valuable information which can be employed by the facility managers to manage and maintain the building throughout the lifecycle of the structure. The information contained in the model can support day-to-day operations and planning needed to ensure that the facility operates at the highest efficiency achievable

Creating an accurate as-built design requires updates from all the participants and stakeholders of the construction process. Post construction, the as-built BIM data can be used for managing security, safety, maintenance and renovation purposes. Dimensions, materials and specifications of all components can be accessed through the application. The point cloud is also an option to make to the as-built BIM model.

Owners and Facility managers have started using CMMS (Computerized Maintenance Management System) and CAFM (Computer-Aided Facility Management) systems to support their daily task of operating, maintaining and managing the facilities.

COBie come into the picture where an effective connection between the BIM model and Facility Management is to be established. It is an industry standard for information exchange among the model and FM services to be derived through that model. It is usually in the form of spreadsheets containing essential information about the components to facilitate operations and maintenance of the building/structure/facility.

BIM to Cafm Integration

COBie is one way which enables the availability of the information. But this information can only be used effectively once it is linked with a CAFM systems. This enables us to make use of the raw data by linking it to the components present in the BIM model and using  this BIM model to facilitate maintenance operations. The raw data is usually difficult to collect, store and retrieve if it wasn’t for the 3D BIM model which links it to every building component, stores the information in digital format regarding the component’s warranty, maintenance cycle and manufacturing details and makes the data easier to retrieve for each particular unit from the BIM model.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does BIM support BMS?

BIM supports Building Management Systems (BMS) by providing a comprehensive digital representation of a facility's physical and functional characteristics. BIM data includes detailed information about building components, systems, and performance attributes. This data is utilized by BMS for effective facility management, allowing for real-time monitoring, control, and optimization of building operations. BIM enhances BMS functionality by offering accurate spatial information, equipment details, and maintenance requirements. Integration of BIM and BMS facilitates data-driven decision-making, predictive maintenance, and energy efficiency analysis. This synergy between BIM and BMS optimizes building performance, reduces operational costs, and enhances overall sustainability.

What is COBie data in Facility Management?

COBie is a standardized data format used in Facility Management to efficiently exchange and organize information about building assets. COBie data includes detailed information about equipment, systems, and spaces within a facility, providing a comprehensive record of as-built conditions. This standardized format enhances interoperability, allowing easy integration with BIM and Facility Management Systems (FMS). COBie data aids in asset management, maintenance planning, and lifecycle analysis, streamlining facility operations. By facilitating the exchange of structured information, COBie improves collaboration and data consistency throughout the building lifecycle, from construction to ongoing facility management.

Can BIM track building assets' use and performance?

Yes, BIM can track building assets' use and performance. BIM incorporates detailed digital representations of a building's physical and functional characteristics. It enables the integration of data related to asset specifications, maintenance schedules, and performance metrics. By utilizing BIM throughout a building's lifecycle, stakeholders can monitor and analyze asset usage, energy efficiency, and overall performance. This information aids in making informed decisions about maintenance, renovations, and improvements, optimizing the building's functionality and lifespan. BIM enhances asset management by providing a comprehensive digital platform for tracking and managing building assets over time.

Does BIM help in estimating future maintenance costs?

Yes, BIM plays a crucial role in estimating future maintenance costs. By integrating detailed information about building components, materials, and their expected lifespan, BIM enables accurate predictions of when maintenance activities will be required. It also considers factors such as usage patterns and environmental conditions, allowing for more precise cost projections. BIM's ability to simulate various scenarios and assess the condition of building elements aids in forecasting maintenance needs and associated expenses. This proactive approach helps facility managers and owners plan and budget effectively, ultimately contributing to more efficient and cost-effective building maintenance strategies

How does Facility Management identify system problems?

Facility Management identifies system problems through a combination of manual inspections, sensor technologies, and Building Management Systems (BMS). Regular inspections by trained personnel help identify visible issues, while sensors and IoT devices provide real-time data on equipment performance and environmental conditions. BMS monitors critical systems, such as HVAC and electrical systems, detecting anomalies and sending alerts when deviations from normal operation occur. Additionally, predictive maintenance tools within Facility Management software analyze historical data and trends to predict potential system failures before they occur. This holistic approach enables early problem detection, minimizing downtime and optimizing system performance in facilities

How do BIM models facilitate building maintenance?

BIM models facilitate building maintenance by providing a comprehensive digital representation of a facility's assets and systems. These models integrate crucial information, including specifications, maintenance schedules, and performance data. By accessing the BIM database, maintenance teams can quickly identify and locate specific components, understand their maintenance requirements, and access historical performance data. This aids in planning preventive maintenance, reducing downtime, and optimizing resource allocation. BIM's visualization capabilities also enhance communication and understanding among maintenance personnel, leading to more efficient and effective upkeep of the building throughout its lifecycle
