    Over 70% of the cost of a facility is incurred during its occupied lifecycle, well after design and construction. Building owners who want to lower operating expenses can use BIM to improve how they document new spaces and maintain facility documentation and to create a streamlined collaboration channel for facilities and design firms. Facilities that have a Building Information Modeling (BIM)-based facility management system can expect improved coordination, efficient facility documentation, and accessible energy audit information. This class discusses the move from design to facility lifecycle management and explores the processes and best practices developed at Indiana University Health's Riley Hospital for Children and St. Vincent Fishers Hospital. Riley Hospital is an integrated project delivery (IPD)-driven project that is currently under construction, and St. Vincent Fishers Hospital recently completed an 11,000-square-foot expansion that integrates with the existing facility management plan.

    Key Learnings

    • Identify the benefits of using BIM for facility management for facility directors and explain how it affects costs
    • List the differences between using BIM or CAD for facility management
    • Explain how to blend a new project done in Revit®-based software into existing building information established in CAD format
    • Describe the strategy and best practices used at each hospital that guided these projects from design to construction
