Twelve Days of CADD Care | Day Two: BIM for Owners value drivers

Justin FriedmanDecember 4th, 2023

On the second day of CADD Care, the CADD team gave to me… a Facilities Management Tip!

When owners embrace BIM, they can benefit from enhanced project communication, improved decision-making, and increased operational efficiency.

Here are some key aspects of BIM for Owners:

  1. Project Planning and Design: BIM allows owners to visualize and understand the proposed design before construction begins.
  2. Cost Estimation and Budgeting: BIM can assist owners in accurate cost estimation and budgeting.
  3. Facility Management and Operations: BIM provides valuable information to owners for efficient facility management and operations. The digital model serves as a centralized repository of data related to building components, equipment, maintenance schedules, and warranties. This information aids in proactive maintenance planning, asset tracking, and optimizing energy consumption.
  4. Collaboration and Communication: BIM promotes collaboration among all project stakeholders, including owners. Owners can actively participate in the design process, provide feedback, and align the project goals with their requirements.
  5. Asset Information and Handover: At the completion of the project, BIM models can be handed over to owners as a valuable asset. The models contain detailed information about the building components, specifications, and maintenance history.
  6. Sustainability and Energy Analysis: BIM can support owners in assessing and optimizing the energy performance of their buildings.

Overall, BIM for Owners offers a holistic approach to construction project management and facility operations. By leveraging BIM technology, owners can streamline processes, reduce costs, and enhance the long-term value and performance of their buildings. Lastly, BIM can bring immense value when creating a digital twin.

Check back tomorrow to see what other tips and tricks the CADD team has in store for the remaining Twelve Fourteen Days of CADD Care.
