Gatwick Airport is the busiest single-runway airport in the world and the second largest in the UK. They are currently partway through a $1.6-billion capital investment program for both building refurbishments and large infrastructure projects up to 2014. Gatwick recently received accreditation for PAS 55 (asset management) and is using these processes to optimize asset management. As Gatwick's Building Information Modeling (BIM) maturity increases, they are starting to use models for improved communication and stakeholder engagement. Most significantly, they are exploring the use of COBie to provide an improved hierarchy within CMMS and as a protocol for moving data from BIM to facilities management. This class provides an overview of tight integration between Autodesk® BIM authoring and review tools and IBM Maximo®. We demonstrate how to integrate asset data with Maximo throughout the life of a project and how the data can be reused to begin future projects.
- Explain the process of uploading assets from Revit®-based software to Maximo using various methods, such as IFC, COBie, or direct transfer
- Use improved navigation of 3D models directly linked to Maximo to visually identify assets
- Describe business integration opportunities with design information flowing to construction, to facilities management, and back to design
- Explain how a virtual building handover improves business
Julian, a BIM Coordinator who has over 15 years' experience in the AEC industry (10 years as a Public Health Engineer using various CADD software, with more than four years using Revit®) specializing in BIM and Revit. He is influential in furthering BIM implementation at Gatwick, engaging various internal stakeholders with the BIM process as well as working with Gatwick's external project architects, engineers & contractors to get the best out of BIM.
Simon Richardson has worked at Gatwick Airport for over 24 years. He brings a wealth of knowledge gleaned from various roles related to design, engineering, masterplanning, and asset management. As the Gatwick Airport CAD lead, Simon is currently heavily involved in Gatwick's Building Information Modeling (BIM) transformation strategy. His emphasis is on the construction of a buried services geographic information system, using technology from Autodesk, Inc., to map the critical infrastructure that keeps the airport open with a road map to connect this system to the current maintenance management system. Simon is also integrating over 60 years' worth of legacy data with the large amount of BIM data being produced as a result of the airport's $1.8 billion investment in new and refurbished facilities. This has involved bringing the CAD/BIM skills of the existing team up to speed, along with recruiting the right staff to increase Gatwick's knowledge base.
