Unit FM4.25: Building Information Modelling for Facilities Management

Learning outcomes

1. Understand the principles of building information modelling (BIM) for facilities management

1.1 Explain the definition and characteristics of building information modelling

1.2 Assess the uses and users of the BIM process and building information models

1.3 Assess the uses of building information models through the facilities management project life cycle and the importance of the Employers Information Requirements (EIR)

1.4 Describe the different BIM software tools

1.5 Explain the role of national standards in the BIM process and how BIM software helps support the process

1.6 Analyse the features and uses of the National Building Specification (NBS) toolkit

1.7 Analyse the challenges of data storage and file sharing (• Purpose of BIMs • Role of the Organizational Information Requirements (OIR) & Asset Information Requirements (AIR) leading to Employers Information Requirements (EIR) in defining what FM needs from the BIM process

2. Understand the implementation of building information modelling for facilities management

2.1 Describe the role of a BIM Manager (Role: responsibilities; training; communications; workflow management)

2.2 Analyse the requirements of a facilities management-focused strategy for a BIM implementation plan (BIM plan inc. current assessment of working practices & changes; business case; implementation strategy, targets, programme, budget; quality criteria; commitment)

2.3 Analyse the implications for training and development (Implications for training, skills and development)

2.4 Assess the uses, benefits and limitations of software to monitor BIM implementation (Implementation monitoring software e.g. buildSMART)

2.5 Analyse the functioning of clash detection systems (Clash detection)

2.6 Analyse ways in which BIM facilitates the detection and resolution of issues during the construction phase (Identification of location of discrepancies and vulnerabilities; Leite and Akinci)

2.7 Analyse the uses and benefits of 3D laser scanning for model development and validation

3. Understand the value of building information modelling to facilities management

3.1 Analyse the principles of evaluating options for facilities management (Options for: space, equipment, products, lifecycles, costings, access (maintenance & repair) etc)

3.2 Analyse the information needs of users and uses of building information models for different purposes (FM’s information requirements in the operational phase and for what purposes: e.g. fire escapes, maintenance, asset replacement etc)

3.3 Assess the suitability of different building information models for different types of facilities management projects (Suitability: e.g. life of products, age & quality of building fabric)

3.4 Analyse the uses and benefits of “Soft Landings” (Soft Landings: a process that facilitates handovers; involvement of FM from the start; interface of different aspects of BIM/FM)
