BIM 101: Everything Facility Managers Need to Know to Leverage BIM

 View All Sessions

About this session:

How can FM teams work with more transparency and efficiency while also keeping building occupants safe in the post-COVID-19 world? The answer lies in BIM data. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the technological tool that architects and contractors use to create buildings. Oftentimes, the lifecycle of a BIM model ends after construction. Not anymore. Join architect and technologist Zach Soflin, AIA, who will explain what BIM data is and how FMs and Building Owners can leverage it after its handover from the design/construction teams. He will introduce key strategies for harvesting, reusing, and adding to existing BIM models and data. He will also demonstrate how to create one single source of truth for increasing the speed and accuracy of how FM teams respond to common day-to-day tasks and challenges. In addition, attendees will learn how to integrate BIM data into their current tech stack and explore how these efficiencies can help FM teams plans for future design and construction projects.
