Two years ago, Skanska developed an Asset Management Information Strategy service offering, largely in response to clients and owners starting to ask questions about (and in some cases, requiring deliverables aligned to) achieving day-one operational readiness for their computer-aided facility management (CAFM) and computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) technology. In our journey, we’ve encountered an infinite number of client-operational environments, from spreadsheets and email to significant investments in complex CAFM, CMMS, and Environmental Monitoring System (EMS) and Building Management System (BMS) platforms. What we’ve learned is that regardless of the destination facilities management environment, all of these conversations start with developing an information strategy. Join us as we discuss common pitfalls and lessons learned with organizing asset data for the end in mind. Representatives from Skanska and Autodesk, Inc., will explore real-life examples of information strategies for asset management in action. This session features Building Ops, BIM 360 Field, and Revit. AIA Approved
- Understand the importance of early engagement in developing an asset management information strategy
- Discover synergies gained by aligning this strategy to other consumers of this information
- Learn about defining the asset-management challenge from the perspective of the CM
- Challenge the assumption that BIM is the solution to this challenge

Sean Doolan is the Senior Manager of VDC Services in the Innovative Construction Solutions group at Skanska USA Building. In this role, Sean develops new technical capabilities and services combining Skanska’s core competencies in construction management with emerging technologies such as UAV’s, real-time location services (RTLS), laser-scanning, and building information modeling (BIM). He has worked in teams supporting large public and PPP transportation projects including the World Trade Center Transportation Hub and a multi-billion dollar airport transformation. Most recently, Sean has been developing asset management solutions using a “BIM2FM” approach for facility operators. This work includes the planning of structured data collection during the design-construction phase to facilitate efficient turnover of asset data into facility operation to reduce overall TCO. Sean holds a Bachelor and Master of Science in Civil Engineering from Stanford University.
