BAM has developed a technical delivery solution to manage and deliver data throughout the different stages of a project using Autodesk's desktop and cloud products. This process is aligned to best industry standards (BS/PAS 1192-2). COBie is BAM's way of cleverly dealing with data as a project is being delivered. Empowering BAM's supply chain to capture and populate this data in a simple, no-fuss manner has been key to our success. BAM has worked with Autodesk to develop a new computer-aided facility management system for facilities management called BIM 360 Ops (formerly Building Ops). Having this system in place as the buildings operator has let BAM use the best of BIM 360 Field software during project delivery. It is this systems integration that has helped BAM to achieve significant cost and timesavings. The principle case study carried out by BAM compares how 2 similar public-private partnership projects were procured and delivered-one with BIM technology, and the other without.
