GRAPHISOFT Business Process Leader, Monte Chapin, will be presenting at a special pre-convention workshop today. The AIA Corporate Architects and Facilities Management Knowledge Community made the decision to offer the session entitled “Leading BIM’s Extension Into Operations and Management” after presenting a similar topic at last year’s AIA Convention.
The connection BIM provides between architect and builder has proven to be a revolutionary one. When the extension of that connection expands into facilities operations – design and operations can be unified. The architect will be able to connect to the people who will operate and occupy the project – when he or she connects the BIM design model to the BIM operations model – setting the stage to create a lifetime legacy and extend design intent and design services far into the future. This is a key opportunity for architects to take a leadership role and expand the services that they offer to clients.
Monte Chapin and the other experts presenting during the workshop will discuss how to integrate operations and management content during design, and how to use BIM for facilities management after occupancy.vide attendees with deeper learning and engagement. This is a chance for architects to take a leadership role in developing the extended use of BIM as a new service of value to owners as well as expand their services so to improve value to their clients by linking BIM design models to facilities management operational models.
The workshop will focus on engaging case studies, demonstrations, breakouts, group discussion, and hands-on opportunity to reveal a new dimension of BIM and how it can be as useful to clients as it already is to architects and builders, and how it can create a new source of revenue for architects.
