Best Practices For Using BIM in IWMS

by | May 5, 2022 | ARCHIBUS, BIM, Facilities Management, IWMS

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a collaborative project management process that is used to manage the design, construction, and process of real estate, infrastructure, and facilities assets. At its core is the inclusion of all (as many as possible) of the project’s stakeholders, including facility professionals.

More specifically, from a lifecycle management perspective, the process allows for a facilities and operation viewpoint to be considered throughout the building design and construction periods. The process also provides an opportunity to transfer quality data – through the model’s database – that is generated at different building lifecycle phases to an integrated workplace management system (IWMS). In turn, the IWMS enables facilities professionals to hit the ground running once the building is commissioned and occupied.

But what information is needed to ensure a seamless transition from the design-build phase to operations?

The following guide provides a BIM Execution Plan to define the BIM-related workflows and responsibilities for each project; a Level of Development (LOD) reference standard to provide clarity throughout the construction process; and answers many of the questions you may have when considering deploying and IWMS with BIM.
