BIM Deliverables: You Get What You Spec
Building owners frequently specify “as-built Building Information Models” and other electronic information deliverables for their construction projects, only to discover that the models and related deliverables are unusable for facility management or operations and maintenance. The root of the problem is a mismatch between what owners expect to receive and what design and construction teams commit to delivering. This session explains how a clear Facility Information Specification incorporated into design RFPs and construction specifications can vastly improve the quality and value of "FM-BIMs" and electronic information deliverables, while streamlining information management and information exchange during design and construction.
1. Learn how to write RFPs and project close-out submittal requirements so as to receive high-quality building information deliverables.
2. Observe how to coordinate requirements for building information models and related electronic building information deliverables such as owners' manuals and other documents.
3. Specify how to gain operational control of building information management by requiring electronic information deliverables that are both human-readable and machine-readable.
4. Understand how to integrate a Facility Information Specification into BIM Project Execution Plans and Level of Development (LOD) Specifications.
