    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.

    Key Learnings

    • 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
