Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Revit software are big in design and construction, but if maintenance and asset management aren't part of the lifecycle data process, then are we really doing BIM? Or is it simply virtual design and construction? The most important component in the BIM process for maintenance and asset management is the facility model and its connection to an asset management system; it may also be the easiest element in the process to overlook. In this class we'll discuss the evolution of Denver International Airport's efforts to integrate their Revit software, AutoCAD Civil 3D software, BIM 360 software, geographic information system (GIS), and Maximo Asset Management programs to create the Holy Grail of BIM—a single source of truth for facility data.
- Learn how to analyze the needs of an owner to ensure the final model fits his or her facility management needs
- Learn how to guide the development of the BIM model from design through construction and into facilities management
- Learn how to integrate a BIM model with GIS data and an asset management system to create a single source of truth
- Learn how to implement a BIM process outside of the project to the whole facility
Brendan Dillon is the Manager of the Digital Facilities & Infrastructure Program for Denver International Airport. DEN is the sixth busiest airport in the United States and has developed a comprehensive BIM and Asset Management plan unsurpassed by any airport in the country. DEN’s DFI program manages over 120 projects at a time with a net value in excess of $2 billion. Prior to joining DEN, he had managed over $1B in BIM projects, including as the BIM standards coordinator for the design team on Denver International Airport’s South Terminal Redevelopment Project. Brendan is also the founder of the annual Airport Information Integration and Innovation (AI3) forum and is the founder of Red5ive Consulting, specializing in BIM deployment and integration for airports. Along with managing DEN’s Digital Facilities & Infrastructure program, Brendan still enjoys getting into the weeds with Revit, writing scripts in Dynamo and generally getting his hands dirty.
George Broadbent is the Director of Asset Management at Microdesk. In George’s role ensures that data captured during Design and Construction can easily move into operations and maintenance for large institutions and organizations.
