During many construction and renovation projects, considerable time is spent developing complex building information models, or BIMs. Unfortunately, that information is rarely extended into the facilities management phase of the building lifecycle. Which means the value of BIM, such as specifications, measurements and detailed analysis, is lost once the design and construction process is over. However, that no longer needs to be the case.
IMAGINiT’s FM and BIM Connection Service breaks down the barriers between BIM and facilities management. Architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) firms can showcase the value that a Revit model brings to owners by linking it with ARCHIBUS – the leading integrated workplace management system (IWMS). With this connection, AEC firms can illustrate to owners how linking a Revit model to an IWMS can provide value in the facilities management phase of the building lifecycle.
Here’s how the service works:
- AEC firms can demonstrate to owners how facilities management can extend the value of BIM throughout the building’s lifecycle.
- Both the owner and AEC firm have access to a dedicated, secure cloud portal that provides model information through the facilities management system for 90 days.
- IMAGINiT provides the software, setup, installation, training and support for all project stakeholders.
With IMAGINiT’s FM and BIM Connection Service, AEC firms can demonstrate the value BIM provides in space inventory management. Want to show your owners more? The basic program can be expanded to include personnel, assets and maintenance. To learn more, contact IMAGINiT today.
