BIM, BAM, BOOM

Jack Randall

There are many challenges facing today’s Facility Manager. They are constantly being requested to consider and utilize new technologies to manage their facilities.  This presentation illustrates how BIM (Building Information Model) + BAM (Building Assembly Model) + BOOM (Building Operation Optimization Model) can help.  In order to take advantage of the BIM+BAM+BOOM, a BIM execution plan must be in place.

The Building Operation Optimization Model represents an excellent opportunity to tap into additional savings. Most owners know that the cost of Operation of a building is in the range of 20-40 times the cost of Design and Construction. Utilizing a Computer Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) system to capture this information has netted some institutions near 30 percent savings.
