Building Information Modeling (BIM) has taken the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry by storm. Architects, engineers, and contractors alike have adopted new technology into their business and adapted their processes to realize a return on investment. Owners, on the other hand, are still struggling to keep pace. AEC firms try to educate owners on the value of BIM, but the things that bring value to design and construction processes may not provide the biggest bangs for owners' bucks. Lifecycle management and facility operations are areas where the real value of BIM will likely reside in the not-to-distant future. This round-table (unconference) discussion gives attendees the opportunity to weigh in on the real value of BIM for owners. These discussions will help steer the way owners require BIM deliverables on future projects so that they can get the most value.
- Understand how BIM tools can add efficiency to facility maintenance
- Understand how contract requirements play a huge role in getting usable BIM deliverables
- Learn how to plan for successful BIM implementation on future projects
