Data sources in construction are exploding. Mobile devices and apps like BIM 360 Field are capturing and storing thousands of photos on typical projects. Drones, scanners, wearables and other construction management apps are adding to the mountain of data collected as a by-product of their use. To bring structure to our interpretations of these growing data streams, machine learning solutions are being applied to sort, filter, and surface insights so that projects can find the information they're looking for and make better decisions. This class will look at some early practical examples such as photo and video recognition for management and sorting of construction images, and predictive analytics in terms of highlighting high risk quality and safety issues. We'll also consider where the industry is going, as disparate data sources and applications become more integrated.
Projects are generating ever-increasing amounts of photo and video documentation. From mobile phones to wearable cameras to drones, the number of devices that can generate visual information is skyrocketing. Unfortunately, storing and organizing this content is not a simple task, nor is linking it to the actual assets. The files are numerous, large, and often do not have the required information associated to help categorize them. This case study of a live project will present a new approach that complements the visual organization capabilities of Revit software (and beyond) with a new product—Smartvid.io—to help store, organize, and tag the video and photo content captured on-site. We will discuss the concept of video-based reality capture within the context of construction, handover, and operations deliverables. This session features Revit, BIM 360 Field, and Building Ops.

To date, created and collected asset data has been siloed within its respective native software, forcing users to extract information from each software and aggregate it to create a custom electronic deliverable. This is a very time-consuming manual process with inconsistent deliverables to owners. Cross-platform workflows in the Autodesk, Inc., suite has enabled information to be passed from one software to the next, resulting in a more-aggregated, seamless deliverable. Class attendees will learn how to capitalize on the Autodesk suite of products (Navisworks software, BIM 360 Glue software, BIM 360 Field software, Building Ops software) to efficiently tie the intelligent model and collected asset data together for better use and navigation of the closeout deliverable. We will highlight a recently completed project that adopted Building Ops software as an asset management tool, gaining efficiency in the facility management process. This session features Building Ops, BIM 360 Field, and BIM 360 Glue. AIA Approved
Two years ago, Skanska developed an Asset Management Information Strategy service offering, largely in response to clients and owners starting to ask questions about (and in some cases, requiring deliverables aligned to) achieving day-one operational readiness for their computer-aided facility management (CAFM) and computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) technology. In our journey, we’ve encountered an infinite number of client-operational environments, from spreadsheets and email to significant investments in complex CAFM, CMMS, and Environmental Monitoring System (EMS) and Building Management System (BMS) platforms. What we’ve learned is that regardless of the destination facilities management environment, all of these conversations start with developing an information strategy. Join us as we discuss common pitfalls and lessons learned with organizing asset data for the end in mind. Representatives from Skanska and Autodesk, Inc., will explore real-life examples of information strategies for asset management in action.

Valuable BIM data developed for construction is frequently lost at Building Hand-over. Additionally, that same BIM data may not be accurate or include all points needed by the Facility Management teams. Lastly, whole building energy management systems can be excessive for some client needs. Learn how new integrated solutions can utilize construction BIM data to dramatically expedite Facilities Maintenance Management System (FMMS) implementation. See how BIM data can be normalized and verified using cloud based QA/QC tools prior to FMMS implementation. Understand how new wireless power sensing devices integrate with cloud FMMS to offer real-time alarm and reporting of critical equipment. This presentation will focus on the integration of these solutions as an example of how technology can be coupled to leverage cloud to cloud services for a more powerful business solution.
With Building Ops software, we can truly focus on the “I” in BIM (Building Information Modeling). Building Ops software brings a business value that enables the owner to reduce cost, ensure equipment continuity, and future proof investments by streamlining the owner-driven BIM process. Manually entering asset data into your integrated workplace management suite will become a thing of the past. Manual data collection has been a difficult task, wasting precious time, effort, and capital. Improving this workflow by using validated data directly from BIM will give your staff access to asset information, history, maintenance manuals, and the 3D model from before the first day of operation. With Building Ops software, you get the right asset data to your personnel when they need it, where they need it. We will show a central plant utilizing Building Ops software.

The class will cover the workflows and considerations needed when setting models up in Revit software for export to BIM 360 Glue software to enable these to be used in BIM 360 Field software and then Building Ops software with asset management and operations and maintenance in mind. The presentation will look at how certain data doesn’t flow across the platforms, and we’ll demonstrate alternative work-arounds you can undertake to overcome this. The presentation will look at how to set up your Revit project with the mindset that the models will be used on iPads in BIM 360 Field software, and then we’ll look at how the data will transfer across into the Building Ops application. We will also address which application the data is generated in and we’ll look at examples of who populates this information. We will explore the differences in the Building Ops model viewing appearance, and the considerations that you may want to make when setting up the model at the start of the project with BIM 360 Glue software, BIM 360 Field software, and Building Ops software in mind. This session features Building Ops, BIM 360 Field, and BIM 360 Glue. AIA Approved
Streamlining the process for preventative and scheduled maintenance of facilities has always been challenging due to lack of communication between designers and future facility maintenance (FM) crews. As evolution of Building Information Modeling (BIM) has been proven to increase efficiency and improve buildings’ construction, it is also improving processes and decreasing costs of FM and facility management. This class will explain how the integration of BIM models into FM systems has become a powerful tool in the building-management lifecycle. We will explain how the BIM model becomes an electronic owner’s manual—it helps visualize space and building components that need maintenance, and it automates a preventive maintenance program. It gives the ability to filter data and quickly search for specific information, which significantly improves efficiency, and saves the maintenance crew time and resources. This session will showcase studies data, software comparisons, and recommendations for industry professionals. This session features Building Ops, BIM 360 Field, and BIM 360 Glue. AIA Approved
Building Ops software is a mobile-first asset and maintenance management software for buildings. It helps general contractors deliver a better handover experience and building owners begin operations on Day One—while better meeting the needs of their mobile workforce. In this instructional demo, general contractors and building owners will learn how to realize the value of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in operations by using Building Ops software. We will publish equipment from Revit software and BIM 360 Field software, set up a preventive maintenance schedule, and show attendees how to connect a building in Building Ops software with a building monitored with Panoramic Power sensors.

During the delivery of School Bundle 4, BAM executed this aspect of work through BIM 360 Field software and BIM 360 Glue software. The right people captured all relevant asset information on mobile devices at the right time. Construction Operations Building Information Exchange (COBie) was used throughout this process as a way of creating clean, compliant, and standardized data. The COBie data set was progressively enhanced throughout the construction delivery phase. This data set is associated with Building Information Modeling (BIM) objects, and coupled with all other data capture, through BIM 360 Field software, it meant that BAM had a complete data set at project completion stage. BAM facilities management (FM) provided clear guidance as to their asset information needs and ensured no time was wasted in the production of irrelevant asset information. The link formed between Building Ops software and BIM 360 Field software is bi-directional and seamless. The now fully developed asset information model (AIM) is central to the Building Ops software Computer-Aided Facility Management (CAFM) system. All reactive and preventative actions are linked through the AIM. This session features Building Ops, BIM 360 Field, and Revit. AIA Approved
Torcon, a Building Ops Implementation Partner, will present an example of how we begin construction with the end goal in mind. We will focus on structuring the information in a BIM 360 database developed during construction. Special attention will be given to bar coding, linked O&M manuals, shop drawings, keying schedules, service level agreements, owner supplied equipment, checklists, and PM /OD /RI work orders. This session features BIM 360 Field and Building Ops.
Commercial buildings are on the verge of the biggest transformation in history. Internet of Things (IoT) is making connected buildings a reality, and adoption is on the rise across architecture, engineering, building technology, real estate, and construction industries. The use of IoT data for building modeling offers tremendous opportunity to optimize the design, construction, retrofit, and operations of buildings. But just having access to data doesn’t unlock actionable insights. Vladi Shunturov, founder and president of Lucid, will explain how we can harness the power of Building IoT for teams across any number of disciplines, from energy management to finance, operations, tenant communications, and more. He'll explain how to turn what were once reactive processes into proactive opportunities, and share proven best practices and use cases to arm attendees with information they need to turn disparate data from connected buildings into strategic assets.
