BAM FM (BAM) designs, builds, and manages large, complex public-private partnerships like the large NATO Headquarters and Ireland’s most intelligent building—One Albert Quay—which has advanced axis control, ICT infrastructure, and claim management. To simplify building operations, the firm wanted facility managers to be able to access high-quality building asset information without having to dig through thousands of spreadsheets, manuals, and specifications.
Using Building Ops asset management software, BAM brought useful data from the construction phase to facilities management. This included a list of asset-related issues that were resolved—and how they were resolved. Prior to this, handover took months. With Building Ops, it’s a matter of minutes per building asset. In addition, BAM has significantly cut task-logging time as well as the time it takes to find asset data. This led to better reporting: BAM now has detailed reporting on 100% of its logged items. With access to such rich building information, the firm is poised to take more successful advantage of not only BIM, but of the Internet of Things, with greater insight and controls over building management processes.
