As a building owner or operator, it is necessary to have reliable, organized information to effectively respond to a portfolio's growing space, maintenance, and energy requirements. Unfortunately, most facilities were built prior to the development of Building Information Modeling (BIM), and for the few that do have models, there are often barriers that prevent the retrieval and sharing of this information. This class will discuss the facility datafication process developed by CASE to help owners generate the data they need to optimally manage their buildings. By aligning information technology with operational processes and advanced Revit software techniques, owners and operators are enabled to effectively communicate and collaborate through a model-based Building Information Solution. This course will also discuss the integration of third-party software and customizations to enhance the datafication process, increase informed decision-making, and optimize the performance of a building portfolio.
- Learn about effective practices for developing a building information strategy for facility owners and operators
- Learn about the facility datafication process
- Learn how to use Revit software to effectively visualize and integrate owner-defined BIM uses
- Learn from examples of the facility datafication process currently being used on existing building portfolios
As a senior building information specialist for CASE, Colleen Kasprzak's expertise lies in the development and implementation of Building Information Modeling (BIM) strategies for owner organizations. She is responsible for helping owners determine appropriate information requirements prior to project turnover and integrating BIM technologies into facility operations. Prior to joining CASE, Colleen worked for Pennsylvania State University Design Services as a BIM implementation strategist, and she was responsible for leading the department's initiatives in developing and implementing BIM processes into facilities management. Colleen earned her bachelor of science degree in architecture and her master of science degree in architectural engineering from Pennsylvania State University. She most notably collaborated on the BIM Project Execution Planning Guide, a buildingSMART alliance project. Colleen has presented at numerous conferences, including Autodesk University, Architectural Engineering Institute Conference, and IBM Pulse.
A founding partner of CASE, David Fano is predominantly responsible for leading technology implementation, knowledge capture and sharing, social media initiatives and business development. He has provided firmwide BIM support, training and guides to clients such as Woods Bagot, Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, and Skidmore Owings & Merrill. David has also contributed to the design industry with the development of DesignByMany.com, a challenge-based virtual design community and DesignReform.net, a digital design publication and free tutorial resource for design professionals. David received his Master of Architecture with honors from Columbia University and has been an Adjunct Professor at Columbia University's GSAPP since 2007 leading seminars and workshops focusing on the impact of technology on design processes.
