This presentation concerns BAM's Wharfedale Locality Hospital PFI project and the process they undertook in a “retro” Building Information Modeling (BIM) to facilities management (FM) Process. The presentation will present how BAM see the business value in BIM to FM in their current facility management buildings, along with any future building contracts they undertake. We will focus upon the importance of engaging the FM operational staff at the earliest opportunity and the reasons why this is important to ensure they receive what they require to operate and maintain a facility. It will include the steps undertaken regarding the tools utilized to gather the operational requirements and the necessary data fields required for the assets from the BIM model. We will present all tools and processes, from design to operations, as well as the importance of the classification of the data in the operational FM environment. We will present business metrics and return on investments to prove the value in a retro BIM model for this facility. We will also look at futures for BIM to FM.
- Gain an understanding of FM operational requirements from a BIM model
- Discover the importance of a well-structured and classified BIM model to achieve BIM to FM
- Discover the effectiveness and the value of a retro BIM model to the FM operational process
- Discover the importance of the model for building changes throughout the facilities life
Phil Palmer has over 30 years’ experience within the construction industry in both the design and construction arena for BAM construction U.K. Ltd. Phil was instrumental in the development and adoption of Revit software within BAM’s design business unit and was one of the key U.K. early adopters within a multidiscipline design department. Phil is now part of the U.K. BAM team responsible for the strategic and technical adoption of Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology throughout all of BAM’s business units from the design, construction, and facility operations at BAM. Phil works closely with Autodesk, Inc., for the BAM U.K. EBA deal to ensure that BAM effectively adopts BIM technology and processes to ensure BAM gets value for money from its investment. Phil is always keen to influence any future direction of Autodesk products and sits on various customer councils. Phil speaks on various events on behalf of Autodesk as one of their major U.K. EBA customers, presenting how BAM is leading the way within the United Kingdom on their adoption of BIM.
