Despite widespread use of conventional BIM software and practices in the disciplines of architecture, engineering and construction, the value of BIM is frequently left unrealized by project owners and operators. Throughout the delivery and operation phases, all too often project data is underutilized, undiscovered, or simply unusable despite execution planning and a team’s intention.Project owners are often not in the position to actually verify that BIM data contains accurate and useful information. On project completion, most AEC deliverables are not compatible with an owner’s existing workflow or software platforms for operation and are simply archived for the “future”.
Through effective planning, standards development and implementation from the perspective of the owner and the project as a whole, GT develops implementation plans that are systematic, ensure lifecycle value and ROI for the use of BIM on any project.
WHAT WE DO
We help owners gain control of BIM and use this information to improve project performance, by:
- Developing guidelines and standards for owner BIM data use in management and direction of AEC consultants
- Assisting owner in the management of design model for project coordination, consistent with the owner’s review process
- Developing owner data analysis strategies that verify data creation and accuracy
- Facilitating the migration of FM data from AEC consultant models to owner’s CMMS and CAFM systems
- Train AEC project teams and internal, owner staff on execution and oversight of BIM protocols and processes.
HOW WE HELP
By taking control of the BIM process and deliverables, owners can increase their visibility and control over the project’s execution, reducing cost, improving quality, and better managing schedule:
- Drastically reduce time for review and identification of project cost and risk
- Provide higher visibility and transparency of the project design and constructibility impacts to stakeholders
- Enable more informed decision making and better management of project contingencies.
- Reduce risk of project cost overrun through better change management and analysis of alternatives.
- Insure that critical data for owner’s lifecycle use is migrated through the BIM process.
