This session will present how an enlightened building owner (The Ohio State University) has successfully partnered/collaborated with both a Building Information Modeling (BIM)-savvy architect and contractor to develop a BIM project delivery standard that enables the model to serve as a single source of truth for relevant spatial and asset information throughout the building lifecycle. This delivery standard has truly begun with the end in mind by taking advantage of the knowledge gained from the BIM for the existing buildings portion of the Buckeye BIM Initiative. We'll highlight how the .RVT portion of this deliverable will work in collaboration with Revit software's COBie Toolkit-structured data to facilitate its utilization in asset management, space tracking, geographical information system (GIS), and sustainability. Lastly, we will highlight the need to implement Technology Solutions and workflows to enable the use of the model across the university and to support interoperability with other data systems.
- Discover the planning process used to develop a BIM project delivery standard as an owner
- Explore how BIM can reduce the total cost of operations/ownership
- Define how BIM can streamline the turnover of spatial and asset information using RVT and IFC files combined with COBie Toolkit
- Discuss the technology used to support the use of the model data in operations and maintenance, and explore the processes used to maintain delivered models
Joe Porostosky is the senior manager of Facilities Information and Technology Services (FITS) at The Ohio State University (OSU), where he maintains 37 million square feet of space drawings and data, and he provides leadership to facilities-related data systems, including OSU's Enterprise GIS. With a background in technology management, Joe has managed the FITS Team for the past 6 years, providing an active and strategic leadership role within the university and redefining the way his group works by using technology in new and inventive ways. As the team leader for the Buckeye Building Information Modeling (BIM) Initiative, Joe has led OSU in the adoption of BIM for existing buildings and for design and construction to improve the university's overall decision-making processes and management of buildings. Joe's BIM initiatives have been the source of many recent publications and presentations. Joe holds a BS in computer science and an MA in public policy and management from OSU.
As the director of Digital Practice at Astorino, Brian Skripac has embraced the changing paradigms of architectural practice, and throughout the past 9 years he has integrated Building Information Modeling (BIM) technologies well beyond the traditional design and documentation processes. More recently he has focused on the integration of BIM to optimize sustainable design outcomes throughout all stages of a project, and he has been demonstrating and implementing the value BIM brings to facility owners from a lifecycle management strategy. Brian holds a bachelor of science degree in architecture from The Ohio State University, and he is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-accredited professional and a Revit Architecture Certified Professional. He also currently serves as the 2014 chair of the AIA Technology in Architectural Practice Knowledge Community (TAP KC) at the national level.
Andy is a proven builder and leader with 23 years of experience in the construction industry. He is a 1994 graduate of the University of Cincinnati with a Bachelor's degree in Construction Management. He joined Messer in 1991 and is experienced in managing complex commercial construction projects ranging from education, medical, office and entertainment facilities. Andy has been involved in project management technology applications for Messer since 1995. In 2001 he managed the first Integrated Design and Construction contract for the company as well as led the first Messer project team to utilize Lean Construction tools. Today he leads the team responsible for advancing the company's operations in technology, innovation and process improvement to sustain the companies continued growth. His primary responsibility is developing and managing the company's advanced capabilities and strategies for utilizing Building Information Modeling collaboratively on Messer's projects.
