Building information modeling | How hospitals can use BIM for maintenance

Building information modeling | How hospitals can use BIM for maintenance | VDC and Lean World | Scoop.it

As BIM adoption continues to grow, the standards and technology that support BIM are becoming more integrated...new "Lifecycle BIM" applications, such as EcoDomus and YouBIM, are emerging to more fully integrate CMMS and CAFM solutions into a data-rich, model-based interface with BIM as the backbone of the information being carried through to hospital facility managers.

Jed Fisher's curator insight, August 25, 2013 3:27 PM

It's taken two years but now I am clearly seeing the trend I had hoped to see. BIM being used downstream, not just for A+E+C but now also for FM and related areas. There is tons of opportunity here, providing occupants and building owners with unprecidented information about their building, their environment. 

Two nice new companies are discussed in this article, the first time I had heard of either. If this is a space you are interested in it is also worth taking a look at bimplus.net.

National BIM Survey 2013

Despite the uncertainty around the subject, the survey once again supported the view that the greater use of BIM is unstoppable with 73% agreeing that clients will increasingly insist on its use, 66% saying the same about contractors and 51% confirming that the Government 'is on the right track with BIM'.

Of those who have adopted BIM, more than half believe that the introduction of BIM has resulted in greater cost efficiencies whilst three-quarters report increased coordination of construction documents. Improved productivity due to easy retrieval of information and better quality visualisations were other gains. A mere 6% would turn back the clock and regret the introduction of BIM to their organisations.

Say “NO!” to Hollywood BIM

Say “NO!” to Hollywood BIM | VDC and Lean World | Scoop.it

We have often seen Builders implementing BIM. But in reality, in most cases, it’s more of a Hollywood BIM than BIM itself. What we’ve accomplished at Mota-Engil, a building company headquartered in Portugal, is a more advanced integration of the BIM process. This article describes how..... Mota-Engil is a 60 year old company, with more than 20,000 employees worldwide. Though the company has several sub-holdings, construction represents about 80% of the total turnover. Last year (2012), its turnover was of 2200M euros, and it has a presence in more than 20 countries.

ENGworks BIM Experts's comment, September 18, 2013 4:58 PM
Highlights of the findings include:

78% agree the BIM is the future of project information, though how that future will look is uncertain, with 4 out of five agreeing that the industry is not yet clear enough of what BIM actually is
Almost a third (31%) of construction professionals are now using BIM – up from 13% in 2010
Three quarters of those construction professionals currently aware of BIM predict they will be using it on some projects by the end of 2012, and almost 19 out of 20 people expect to be using it in five years' time
More than 80% agreed BIM increases the coordination of construction documents, with 65% of those using the technology saying BIM delivered cost efficiencies. http://www.thenbs.com/topics/BIM/articles/nbsNationalBimSurvey_2012.asp

Duane Craig's curator insight, September 19, 2013 10:46 AM

It looks like BIM could end up being the back door to construction being more transparent and to replacing construction's adversarial relationships with collaborative ones.

Now this makes sense...
