Quality Improvement of BIM for Operation and Maintenance phase
The use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) processes and technologies is rapidly growing in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry. It is being widely implemented during the design and construction phases. However, the building models created in these phases are not suitable for the Operation and Maintenance Phase (O&M). These models lack useful data for O&M or include unnecessary items which affect the usability of models. This project aims to develop tools to improve the quality of models used for O&M. Additionally, a strategy of quality assurance and quality control will be investigated. The project outcomes will offer a competitive advantage to the partner organization in the high-potential market of O&M. Finally, it will empower the Canadian role in BIM development and enable facility owners to make considerable savings.
