Can BIM underpin a smart future for predictive maintenance post occupancy? The recent advent of live, online collaborative databases of BIM information, shared in cloud-based services, presents a very real opportunity for us to consider BIM as a key smart system to be designed into a building and residing on a common data network. The purpose is to make smart and automated management decisions about the operation of the building—essentially we’re talking about predictive maintenance.
- Understand what a smart building is
- Approach traditional designs in a different way using technology
- Think in a more joined-up way
- Change how design packages are formed
