This session will present how The Ohio State University has successfully developed a Building Information Modeling (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 Existing Buildings portion of the Buckeye BIM Initiative. We'll highlight how the Revit portion of this deliverable will work in collaboration with COBie structured data to facilitate its utilization in effective data turnover. We'll 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. Last, we'll cover lessons learned, continuing challenges, and how the standard has evolved over the last 2.5 years of existence.
- Learn about the planning process used to develop a BIM project delivery standard as an owner
- Define how BIM can streamline the turnover of spatial and asset information using Revit and Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) files combined with COBie
- Discuss the technology to support the use of the model data in operations and maintenance, and the processes to maintain delivered models
- Discover the lessons learned and the ongoing challenges, along with the evolution of the standard since inception
Brian Skripac is a leader within CannonDesign’s BIM and Digital Practice team who continually drives innovation by merging technology and practice. He has 20 years of industry experience, with the last 10 focusing on the integration of BIM to transform the design and project delivery process. Brian has successfully developed and managed BIM-enabled delivery systems for large efforts in Design-Led Construction. In addition, he focuses on the use of BIM to capture and structure relevant facility data, implementing the value BIM brings to facility owners from an interoperable lifecycle management strategy. Brian holds a bachelor of science in architecture from The Ohio State University and he is a LEED accredited professional. A thought-leader in this field, he is an advisory group member and past-chair of the AIA National Technology in Architectural Practice Knowledge Community and serves on the BIMForum committee responsible for authoring the LOD Specification.
Joe Porostosky is the director of Facilities Information and Technology Services (FITS) at The Ohio State University (OSU), where he maintains 38 million square feet of space drawings and data, and he provides leadership to facilities-related data and document systems, including OSU’s Enterprise GIS. With a background in technology management, Joe has managed the FITS Team for the past 7 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 holds a BS in computer science and an MA in public policy and management from OSU.
