Coping with transition and turmoil in managing your campus
As BIM-based models become more widely adopted by architects, engineers, and construction professionals, facilities management becomes more of a challenge than ever before.
Yes, BIM adds a depth to building layouts that streamlines many processes.
But for facilities managers and executives, BIM can cause confusion, drain resources, and lack the analytics that drive informed decisions. That’s because:
- More intricate building models add significant complexity than CAD does in managing campus layouts
- Organizations receive BIM models from A/E firms without any clear strategy for ongoing updates
- Many, if not most, campuses have a combination of BIM- and CAD-based layouts without a seamless management tool to connect them
- BIM-based software and services are costly and complex - even without the integration of essential information needed across all departments and levels of management
Using BIM as an effective facilities management tool takes far more than technology alone. You need knowledgeable personnel to develop, refine, and deploy methodologies that work for you – and ATG can help.
