Streamlining the process for preventative and scheduled maintenance of facilities has always been challenging due to lack of communication between designers and future facility maintenance (FM) crews. As evolution of Building Information Modeling (BIM) has been proven to increase efficiency and improve buildings’ construction, it is also improving processes and decreasing costs of FM and facility management. This class will explain how the integration of BIM models into FM systems has become a powerful tool in the building-management lifecycle. We will explain how the BIM model becomes an electronic owner’s manual—it helps visualize space and building components that need maintenance, and it automates a preventive maintenance program. It gives the ability to filter data and quickly search for specific information, which significantly improves efficiency, and saves the maintenance crew time and resources. This session will showcase studies data, software comparisons, and recommendations for industry professionals. This session features Building Ops, BIM 360 Field, and BIM 360 Glue. AIA Approved

With over 5 years of experience in the design and construction industry, Zhuting “Claire” Mao has been instrumental in the successful completion of numerous high-profile projects. Claire is a key member of the virtual design and construction (VDC) department at Balfour Beatty. Claire is experienced in utilizing Building Information Modeling (BIM) and technology including Virtual Reality, laser scanning and photogrammetry in project pursuits, design assistance, site logistics, construction coordination, and 4D animations. She takes her experience even further with the creation of coordination plans, teaming agreements and co-location strategies for BIM implementation from design to preconstruction and through closeout.
