    This class will cover how Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT Group), the largest telecommunication company from Japan, turned its complex data center facility Building Information Modeling (BIM) project into a successful BIM project from the facility owner’s perspectives with Autodesk Consulting. The owner established a BIM management office within their organization to manage the BIM process, utilizing project management methodology by Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). Revit software was used to generate construction drawings and as-built drawings. Additionally, 3D models were coordinated and collaborated using BIM 360 Glue software during the preconstruction phase. The building QA/QC and commissioning process was redesigned using BIM 360 Field software. Information within Revit software was imported into the data center facility management system using Revit software’s COBie Toolkit and the data exchange format was customized to fit the facility manager’s demand.
