Building information modeling | How hospitals can use BIM for maintenance

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 insight:

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.

Tech change: BIM makes construction look more like manufacturing

Tech change: BIM makes construction look more like manufacturing | 4D Pipeline - Visualizing reality, trends and breaking news in 3D, CAD, and mobile. | Scoop.it

The construction industry is in for a “contractor-led revolution” as the greater adoption by building contractors of building information modelling (BIM) – software that permits collaborative work all along the design and construction – makes them do more assembly of prefabricated components onsite, rather than building structures out of raw material, a director of software company McGraw Hill Construction says....

I like the final line especially -  “A big theme in America now is lean construction – taking the waste out of the process.”
