Laying the foundation for sustainable lab operations and management with BIM

Laying the foundation for sustainable lab operations and management with BIM | Bim Knowledge | Scoop.it
There is an increasing awareness of the need to provide building owners with a BIM model that instructs and reinforces the operations and management of laboratories and high-technology facilities, especially in achieving sustainable performance.

Who should Provide, Verify and Update BIM for the Owner?

Jed Fisher's curator insight, September 4, 2013 4:11 PM

Really interesting question. In the software industry the thinking now is a "User first, user centric" philosophy. In building the user is the "Owner" or really the "Occupant" (very often not the same).

Building does not yet seem to be thinking Owner/Occupant First, obviously it starts out like this but it seems to get lost in the various layers of collaboration. Often owners do not understand some of the details (or are often not exposed to them) and thus perhaps making a short term cost saving in tradeoff to a long term cost saving (for example, putting in a "cheap" Lift or Aircon system, then facing high running costs).
It's complicated even more by the fact that many people who commission buildings (Owners) do so with the plan to sell or rent the building - thus purposely making an inefficient "cheap" building that the end Occupants get stuck with.

In a perfect world, everyone would be thinking "Owner/Occupant first" but perhaps this is too idealistic :-)

Going back to the article, one thing I would like to see is that Owners (and even Occupants) start *demanding* BIM Models - and then related to this downstream BIM Apps to use.

Imagine, when you move (for work or for home) to be able to have a 3D BIM model, to see all associated costs, running information, heating/cooling info, historic service info, etc - very powerful. 

When will we see this? - 2 years, 5 years, 20 years?

Four Thoughts about the Future of BIM

As BIM becomes more mainstream in the building industry its use meets new technologies, delivery methods and business models head-on, creating a heady mix of possibilities for the future. This talk will examine the future of BIM in the globalized world of broad adoption, emerging cloud and reality capture technologies, innovative delivery approaches and opportunities for industry professionals to deliver more value to clients and collaborators.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
•Understand the current state of BIM technologies for representation and analysis.
•Understand how emerging technologies like cloud computing, social networking, mobile platforms and reality capture will affect BIM process and outcomes.
•Learn about how project delivery models and the roles and responsibilities of architects, engineers and builders will change as new technologies change the face of BIM.
•Explore new business opportunities offered by BIM-based processes.

Early Energy Simulation: Don’t Design Your Zero Energy Building Without It | Bim Knowledge | Scoop.it
U.S. Zero Energy Buildings (ZEB) were scarce five years ago, but the list is growing rapidly as the industry proves it can be done at lower upfront cost than most would guess.

Who this is for: Building industry stakeholders interested in the emerging landscape of zero energy buildings in the United States, and the drivers behind it. Architects in particular will find the suggested AIA resources helpful in understanding how their role on projects will evolve as high performance building requirements become the norm......

The BIM Manager’s Balancing Act | AUGI

“You are only as good as the people that work for you.” This quote rings true for all managers, especially ones that manage a technology-driven field such as BIM or VDC as it relates to Preconstruction Management. This is because not only do you, as BIM Manager, oversee a group of professionals, you also lean heavily on each Subject Matter Expert, or “SME.” You reach for their intellectual input on crucial matters, and you gather all of the intel and assemble it all into one respective bowl to then execute—whatever it is that you are executing.....

BIM: Practically Standard

BIM: Practically Standard and Coming to a Contract Near You?


As I participate in standards development initiatives specifically those regarding process and workflows, and as I consult with teams, industry partners and owners alike, there is one question that I continue to wrestle with:

Who should be setting the standards?


Frankly, I believe whatever the answer, it should align with this credo:

Anyone who defines a standard should be willing to live by it themselves....
