Why BIM is Significant to the Facility Managers?

Why BIM is Significant to the Facility Managers?

BIM is an inspiration to all the AEC (Architectural, Electrical and Construction) industry professionals. The BIM Facility Management technology brings an exciting paradigm for eventually creating growth. Now, what are the key benefits of BIM to a facility manager?

Benefits  of using BIM for Facilities Management:

  • Quantifiable Advantages: Using BIM and 3D Model, construction professionals can reduce 40% of the time taken by the technician to execute the work order about repairing and maintaining equipment.Researches have found that the calculated time of every step for HVAC and electricity intervention on-site with a BIM Model is less compared to the time taken without a 3D BIM Model.
  • Qualitative Advantages: Building Information Modeling helps to optimize the monitoring and surveillance work of the maintenance and technical teams. The 3D BIM model enables curative maintenance and precise budgeting. The progressive 3D model includes technical staff,augmented autonomy, optimal space, equipment management, and improved order management of spare parts.

New Opportunities Combining Facility Management & BIM

Using BIM for the facilities management enables new opportunities including:

  • Training of Technical Staff
  • Fire Simulation & Emergency Exit
  • Geo location and Guidance within a Building
  • Remote Building Management

Challenges of Facilities Management through BIM

The benefits of the 3D BIM Model for Facilities Management are real and diverse. However, the key challenges the Facility Manager faces entails ensuring the following:

  • Whether the 3D BIM model has been accurately developed from points cloud for existing assets or laterally with the new construction project.
  • Whether there is a BIM-enabled FM software application for managing the data coming from the BIM model.

Building Information Modeling for Landscape Architecture with Vectorworks

architecture BIM services

The landscape architecture industry’s contemporary drive to standardize BIM services workflows is a shift similar to its previous move from hand-drawings to CAD drafting. With BIM technology, landscape architects can work closely with all project stakeholders including architects, engineers, and other collaborators on projects with structural & civil requirements.

All landscape-specific software applications are capable of doing BIM, but all BIM software opportunities are not created purposefully for the landscape architect. Landscape architects use a wide array of software programs for appending data to the models. Then, there’s the learning curve for successfully implementing BIM workflows.

Vectorworks Landmark can be the right solution in this regard. Most of the landscape architecture software solutions currently available haven’t integrated BIM services workflows, but Vectorworks Landmark has the Data, crucial to the design. So Landmark helps you make informed design decisions with data visualization of slope analysis, solar animations, and water budgets – all in one easy-to-access interface.

Benefits of BIM Landscape Architectural Design

  • Facilitating landscape design
  • Feasibility Analysis
  • Landscape Evaluation
  • Visual Impact Analysis
  • On-site Construction Planning
  • Contract Management
  • Modeling
  • Project Consultation from Community

Vectorworks Landmark Facilitating BIM Execution Plan

Vectorworks Landmark facilitates the delivery of the BIM execution plan in a project. Landmark accelerates the time required for project drafting & data reporting as the two processes are integrated while providing valuable information for other involved parties.Although there are interfaces with collaborators using various software applications, IFC turns out to be the common denominator and by describing BIM services requirements out of the gate, the firm could state expectations to the IFC models. Drawings can be loaded with intelligent & quantifiable information.

Another time-saving step was setting up classes in the Vector works file for defining object attributes during the initial stages of the project. This accelerates the drafting process taking a lot of the thinking out of it. Templates are also available as a training tool for junior modelers who are newly working with BIM.

Integrated 2D to 3D Functionality of Vectorworks

If you embrace the integrated 2D to 3D functionality of Vectorworks with tools like Hardscape, 3D Polygon and the Plant tool, you can simply draw, regulate, edit and replace model elements as per requirement. You can also edit graphic representation with a simple click of a button, modifying the information attached automatically. Every information gets embedded in the object. If something needs to be changed, it can be easily replaced. The same information can be seamlessly moved to a worksheet.

Easier Import & Export

If you have the plan of including a roof terrace to the project, you can change elevations easily through design layers, and export it as one model with proper elevations. For specifically coordinating with project architects, the ability to specify stories through Vectorworks software is priceless.By using the Object Information palette in Vectorworks, IFC data can be edited to ensure its compatibility with the COBie information as essential by several parties, including Information Managers, architects on the project, and the firm’s landscape architects.
