8.01 BIM Master Planning for 72 Million Square Feet

Thursday, April 4, 2013
9:15 AM-10:15 AM
Track: Best Practices
Format: Interactive Presentation
Knowledge Level: 100 level
Session Description: Nimble Web-based Building Information Modeling (BIM) can be used to quickly link facilities management data and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data layers. These approaches are not only cost effective but are equally viable for use with a single building or a large, multi-location enterprise. The audience will be invited to participate with their personal mobile devices in demonstrations showing how all 112 California Community Colleges are using the ‘FUSION’ of facility data with building data and location information for work across the facility lifecycle—from campus master planning to FM.

Many simple tools can be used to manage the big data of the California Community Colleges, giving access to valuable decision making tools to a wider audience throughout the life-cycle of facilities.

Starting simply with data already on hand, owners and their contractors can adopt freely available data standards designed to aid in linking pre-existing data using cloud-computing tools.  New data and new capability can be added only when needed; thus, saving time and money.

Learning Objectives:
  • Find how FM data links to various sources for use across the lifecycle.
  • Learn low-cost approaches to incorporate information from master planning, design, construction and FM.
  • Involve customers and stakeholder in FM data tools; learn how it can work easily and why it matters.
  • Learn why FM cloud data can be more secure and a good hedge against future technology evolution.
