Why Europe Adopts BIM for Facility Management
BIM is becoming highly relevant in the context of facility management as digitalisation progresses in Europe.
FREMONT, CA: BIM allows for collaborative and comprehensive approaches in building design, construction and maintenance. In many European countries, BIM is quickly becoming the norm. BIM has already been made mandatory in public sector projects. These developments have now contributed to making BIM a part of facility management. Effective facility management necessitates streamlined and concerted efforts which drive efficiency into modern buildings. The rich and intuitive experience that BIM offers is thus, well-suited to new-age facility management needs. The following list presents a detailed look at why Europe is deploying BIM for facility management.
• Optimising Functional Assets
Today, smart buildings and facilities house a multitude of functional assets which deliver data to the BIM systems. These packets of data are depicted graphically using BIM solutions. For facility managers, this data provides unmatched visibility across functional assets, which is vital for optimised maintenance of functional assets. Assets can be accessed, sorted and controlled through centralised platforms. Thus, BIM entitles facility managers to manage sophisticated assets transparently and enhance their lifespan.
• Granular Information through 3D Models
All the structural and operational information that BIM stores and offers can be viewed through 3D models. Visual depiction allows facility managers to have better insights to facilitate tasks like locating particular assets, finding errors and carrying out repairs. Preventive and proactive maintenance also becomes a possibility with tools like cameras, video analytics and sound analytics systems under BIM.
• Compatibility with Older Buildings
BIM-backed facility management can today be carried out even for older buildings which were not designed or constructed using the technology. Facility managers can use laser scanning and point cloud data to render accurate 3D models and use them for BIM-enabled maintenance techniques.
By extending new opportunities and optimisations that were unattainable a few years ago, BIM is gaining popularity in the field of facility management across the rapidly digitalising Europe.
