When you read, you begin with ABC; when you sing you begin with do-re-mi.
When you BIM you begin with Asset Information Requirements.
Nope, it’s not quite as catchy, but in construction terms just as important. It could even be argued that the collaborative processes of Building Information Modelling have one main aim, and that is to provide the client with an efficient, operational model. The Asset Information Requirements, defined at the very start of a project, determine the behaviours, processes and deliverables the project will need to achieve by the end.
Nigel Davies, Director at Evolve Consultancy, takes you through an easy to follow process of mapping asset requirements to the models, and how IFC and COBie can be used pragmatically to deliver against the client’s expectations. Nigel will also explain how Solibri Model Checker has been an integral part of Evolve’s validation & delivery process by drawing on case studies from ongoing projects where the asset management has been a key part of the handover requirements.
