Post Construction BIM Implementations and Facility Asset Management

Apr 01, 2009

The power of managing existing facilities through virtual modeling is being demonstrated and documented in a pilot program by the Facility Lifecycle Group of MACTEC Engineering and Consulting, Inc. The program is being funded by and conducted for an agency of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD); it includes 10 significant mission critical facilities geographically dispersed throughout the United States.The program features an innovative solution combining a modified BIM (Building Information Model) and structured facility asset management process, known as ‘BIMam™’, Building Information Modeling for Asset Management. The value of BIM created during design and construction phase is well documented and can result in an estimated 30 percent reduction in total construction
