This paper presents a novel vision of paperless and visual lifecycle building management tools based on the coupling between Building Information Models (BIM) and Augmented Reality (AR) called Lifecycle Building Card. As the use of BIM increases within the architecture, engineering, and construction industries, new opportunities emerge to help stakeholders and maintenance operators to leverage the BIM dataset for lifecycle issues using realtime environments and simulation. In particular, a tighter coupling of BIM with computer vision techniques could enable innovative lifecycle management tools based on AR concepts. In this context, this work explores the possibilities and derives theoretical and practical concepts for the use of BIM enhanced by AR for supporting maintenance activities in buildings. An implementation of a wireless spatially-aware display is presented as a first step toward the stated vision.
