BIM and Facilities Management – Sydney Opera House: CHRIS LINNING

In the past weeks, we’ve learnt about how BIM has changed the way many buildings are designed and built. But does a project end at the moment of handover? The answer is no. Buildings have life-cycles just as we do. We are conceived, born, raised, get old, say hi to disease and cancer, get ourselves fixed, one twice maybe a couple of times and then we say bye bye. Buildings are commissioned, designed, built, worn down, renovated a few times, and then eventually get pulled down. How long a building can last for comes down to how well the facility is managed. BIM has fundamentally revolutionised building management providing the building manager with the tools for precision, unparalleled control, analysis and preemptive diagnosis.  Continue reading

BIM Coordination Technologies: Ryan HANLEN & Fawzi SOLIMAN

Some amazing & physics defying structures are being built this day and age. However, many of these could not occur without BIM technologies, also known as Building Information Modelling. In layman’s terms, BIM is a technology where an actual 3D model of a design is generated when drawing in 2D. As well as generating a 3D model, information such as quantity, cost, material is attached to each element inside the 3D model. Everything is linked. So what does this mean?  Continue reading
