The following are just a few benefits BIM has to offer facility managers:

Space Management - By integrating building data with HR data, organizations can reduce vacancy and ultimately achieve major reductions in real estate expenses.

Energy Efficiency - BIM can help facilitate the analysis and comparisons of various energy alternatives to help facility managers dramatically reduce environmental impacts and operating costs.

Preventive Maintenance - Information about building mechanical equipment stored in BIM models can be valuable in creating a database needed for ongoing preventative maintenance.

 Retrofits and Renovations

– A “living” BIM model provides an easier means of representing three-dimensional aspectsof the building. Better information about existing conditions reduces thecost and complexity of building renovation and retrofit projects.

Lifecycle Management -Some building design professionals are embedding data on life expectancy andreplacement costsin BIM models, thereby helping an owner understand benefitsof investing in materials and systems that may cost moreinitially but have a betterpayback over the life of the building.

Whether you work in design, construction or facility management, FM:BIM can help you get rid of the headaches and waste of entering and sharing building information.FM:BIM can help AEC firms:Develop new revenue streams
  • With FM:BIM you can maintain the model for your clients and publish BIM data and floor plans to a simple, easy-to-use Web-based system for space and occupancy, maintenance, and more.

Differentiate your servicesWith FM:BIM, you can provide a rich base of data about the building to your clients, enabling a smoother handoff of information and helping the owner streamline commissioning, jump start maintenance processes, and plan for occupancy.

Maintain an ongoing relationship with key clients

  • Buildings never stop being built. With FM:BIM, your firm can help clients navigate those changes by managing the BIM models, helping you maintain an ongoing partnership with your clients to drive down the lifecycle costs of the building.

FM:BIM can help facility professionals:

  • Manage space and plan occupancyFacility managers can build a detailed and accurate space inventory based on your BIM models, helping your clients make more efficient use of their real estate and significantly reducing costs.
  • Manage and maintain building equipment
  • Facilities professionals can populate maintenance management systems with building equipment information from your models, avoiding the costly and time-consuming tasks involved with keeping an accurate inventory of equipment.
  • View floor plans from BIM modelsEveryone in your client's organization can view color-coded floor plans published from your models in a Web browser, helping your clients understand how they use space and quickly locate building equipment.
FMBIM20asset20integration
With FM:BIM, anyone on the project can capture building informatio whether they're BIM gurus or have never touched Revit. Free up your Revit modelers to model buildings -not enter data! With FM:BIM's unique integration an engineer can specify a certain model of equipment, the sub-contractor can enter the specific serial number and date installed and the facility manager can enter maintenance schedules - all from a standard Web browser!
Key Capabilities
