Over 70% of the cost of a facility is incurred during its occupied lifecycle, well after design and construction. Building owners who want to lower operating expenses can use BIM to improve how they document new spaces and maintain facility documentation and to create a streamlined collaboration channel for facilities and design firms. Facilities that have a Building Information Modeling (BIM)-based facility management system can expect improved coordination, efficient facility documentation, and accessible energy audit information. This class discusses the move from design to facility lifecycle management and explores the processes and best practices developed at Indiana University Health's Riley Hospital for Children and St. Vincent Fishers Hospital. Riley Hospital is an integrated project delivery (IPD)-driven project that is currently under construction, and St. Vincent Fishers Hospital recently completed an 11,000-square-foot expansion that integrates with the existing facility management plan.
and BIM coordinators who are interested in using BIM to lower property lifecycle costs for property owners and for facility managers and property owners who want to learn how to maximize the benefits of BIM-based facility management
Mark Handy is Director of the multidisciplinary Facilities Management Practice at BSA LifeStructures. He has been with the firm since 1985 and applies his depth of design and project management experience to his focus on facility life cycle knowledge management. He leads the firm's efforts from the construction and design phases into the facility lifecycle phase, by employing design software such as Revit®, Navisworks® and AutoCAD® MEP - allowing his team to add value to their clients by strategically aligning physical assets to organizational business plans. Mark's healthcare background and familiarity with the Joint Commission and other regulatory agencies drives the creation of flexible and robust data repositories that prepare his clients for JCAHO audits and inspections. Mark has conducted FM services for more than 20 million square feet of facilities for multiple Midwestern clients since 1996.
While construction collisions/clashes are not deliberate in the AEC profession, most of them could have been avoided. This class covers practical techniques, tips, and tricks to effectively manage the data exchange between Revit software and Navisworks software to detect, resolve, and avoid the unforeseen collisions/clashes that have long plagued design professionals in the AEC industry. We start with an overview of what's required to set up Revit MEP to work with Navisworks on a live construction project, including live examples. We cover proven tips, tricks, and techniques from active practitioners in the fields of architecture, building services, and structural engineering. In the second part of the class, we focus on using the Revit BIM data inside Navisworks Manage to produce meaningful clash detection reports, TimeLiner animations, and automation tips to standardize and expedite the process of importing models into Navisworks Manage.
Every building truly does have its price and one of the most time-consuming items during the estimation process is to perform and complete a building takeoff. In this hands-on lab, we teach you how to use Navisworks Manage 2014 Quantification workflows to help you minimize your time doing takeoffs. We use 3D models (Revit® Architecture software) to complete our tasks in this class. You learn to understand the Navisworks Manage 2014 Quantification software interface and the tools in the software, and leave the class feeling ready to tackle the coming takeoff challenges.
