Many facility owners require intelligent models as deliverables for capital projects. However, simply asking for models or COBie, or mandating industry-standard Building Information Modeling (BIM) execution plans, may not fit the specific requirements and workflows within an owner’s organization. In this session, you will learn best practices from Princeton University with more than a decade’s experiences of driving successful BIM projects. We will share with you how Princeton has standardized the workflows to obtain an integrated deliverable that combines BIM models with as-built documents and data. Princeton will explain how defining the facilities management (FM) deliverable as a prime objective very early in the construction phase empowers architects, engineers, and contactors to increase the quality of their services, while providing excellent FM deliverables. You will also discover innovative technologies of integrating Princeton’s existing FM applications with Autodesk, Inc., technology to extend BIM to FM teams. This session features BIM 360 Glue and BIM 360 Field. AIA Approved
- Learn successful strategies to define BIM deliverables for AEC firms from a large institutional owner’s perspective
- Discover workflows to enable a consistent way of accessing, sharing, and integrating BIM models, documents, and data

Bill Bausmith, Jr. is a LEED AP. He has been in the design and construction industry for more than 27 years, that time roughly split between private enterprise as a builder and the last 15 years as associate director of Design and Construction for Princeton University. His current position includes the direct oversight of construction management, engaging closely with facility maintenance staff and playing a leadership role in the development of technology applications that improve construction and maintenance workflows. By 2005, Princeton had a powerful, well-developed, web-based portal for construction workflows, and a well-structured facilities management (FM) library. The past 11 years have been focused on the deployment of Building Information Modeling (BIM) standards and processes that enhance that architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) performance, and ultimately provide an integrated BIM to FM deliverable.
Sheryl Yang is a Building Information Modeling (BIM) expert and advocate with both construction and facilities management (FM) backgrounds and more than 5 years of experience working on research and implementation of BIM for the architecture, engineering, and construction and FM industries. She is now an implementation consultant at Autodesk, Inc., focusing on providing consulting and training services for the adoption and development of BIM 360 Solutions and BIM practices. Yang also helps Autodesk clients to integrate the BIM 360 platform and data with their existing construction or FM applications. Prior to joining Autodesk, Yang worked as a researcher and received her doctoral degree from Carnegie Mellon University. Her doctoral dissertation focuses on BIM for owners—more specifically, on developing a new approach using BIM and visualization technologies to streamline facility maintenance workflows.
