Building Information Modeling-BIM Lifecycle and Facitlities Management

Building Information Modeling (BIM) has tremendously revolutionized Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry from last few years. The NBS International BIM report 2016 shows statistics on the usage of BIM by AEC industries in various countries and the future of BIM. According to this statistics, the next five years will see a rapid growth and transformation in the usage of BIM for the countries like UK, Canada, Japan, and Denmark. Over 80% of the professionals are expected to adopt the BIM Services for their future endeavor. This report indicates that 8 out of 10 company professionals who have started using BIM find it amazingly successful as it creates a value and provides better coordination management. Undoubtedly, BIM is sweeping the AEC industry with its numerous facilities and advantages.

 Why BIM Lifecycle?

BIM Lifecycle is the process of creating, utilizing and maintaining the building information. But a question may arise as to why BIM is taking over the AEC industry so rapidly. The reason is simple: it covers a broad range of valuable area.

BIM benefits everyone dealing with the buildings due to following reasons:
    • Information about all the building elements can be used throughout the building lifecycle from construction to maintenance.
    • BIM provides a 3D model that serves as a centralized location for all the parties involved to put in and pull out the information.
    • BIM provides a 4D model that is used for scheduling during construction, modification and maintenance phase.
    • BIM provides a 5D model to reduce the expenses and maintenance costs.
    • BIM provides a 6D model to answer all the questions like who, what, when, and how of the different aspects of the building lifecycle.

Benefits of BIM for facility management:
    • Space Management: BIM gives a proper know-how of the space used thus increasing the scope of reducing vacant spaces. Ultimately, it reduces the expenses required for maintenance.
    • Efficient Maintenance: Maintenance of information becomes tough when a large amount of data is involved in big projects. BIM eliminates months of work by providing a streamlined maintenance of the information.
    • Efficient Energy Usage: Through BIM, facility managers can avoid negative impacts on the environment by helping find energy alternatives. Hence, it optimizes the building performance.
    • Affordable Renovations: BIM Services help in providing better information on the existing state of the project. Hence, reducing the complexity, time and money required to renovate it.
    • Lifecycle Management: BIM supports an in-depth knowledge of the materials to be used for lower maintenance cost. Some materials are costly compared to others but they are more durable hence reducing the overall lifecycle costs.
