Construction Transition Services - Transitioning from construction to facilities management is one of the places that many projects fail, causing years of added expenses to the owner as they fight through partial and incorrect information to manage their buildings. The president of VDW Services, has been on both sides of this, managing multi-million dollar construction projects and managing the day to day facilities management of a multi-million dollar facility. One of the great advancements that has come along is the use of Building Information Management (BIM) to integrating these two phases together. Unfortunately, the shortcoming in BIM is that many owners are unaware of what they need to tell their designer and contractor in order to make this transition a smooth one. They often get too much, unmanageable, useless information because they did not ask the right questions or provide the right information to their project team. During his time in the industry, VDW's President has worked with owners to determine what facilities management parameters need to be included in the BIM, worked with the designers and contractors to build BIM execution plans, and provided the designers and contractors with the information from the owner that is needed to make the BIM usefull. On his showcase $14M Mechanical Plant project, VDW's President worked with the owner to determine what information the owner needed in the BIM, used that to build a BIM parameters database, and created a BIM execution plan that allowed all members of the team to use the 3D model for their efforts, all while capturing the management information needed by the owner. He then worked with the owner to create a unique identifier that allowed the data in the BIM to be quickly exported into the owner's asset management software and created a tagging system that allowed the owner's maintenance personnel to use a smart device to instantly pull up all the information and manuals on each piece of equipment all while standing at that piece of equipment and all of this from day one of occupancy. He would appreciate the opportunity to do the same for your organization.
