Abstract

Many facility owners are beginning to adopt Building Information Modeling (BIM) to effectively operate and maintain the facility. The BIM Planning Guide for Facility Owners helps in planning and integrating BIM throughout the organization and the life cycle of the facility. To assist owners with planning for the adoption of BIM, three procedures were developed. These procedures include BIM organizational strategic planning, BIM organizational execution planning, and BIM project procurement planning. These procedures were developed through content analysis of available industry and research documents; industry interviews; workshops; and observational case studies. As part of the validation for the procedures developed, case studies were conducted in which the procedures were implemented. To understand the effectiveness of the procedures outlined in the BIM Planning Guide for Facility Owners, a case study of a well-established real estate development firm was conducted. The case study was conducted by implementing the strategic planning and procurement planning procedures that are applicable to the organization's needs. Within the strategic planning procedure, the organization assessed their needs, targeted goals, objectives, and uses, and developed a plan for implementation. The procurement planning effort focused on developing the contract language necessary to accomplish the goals and objectives. The lessons learned from the case study will help in future planning and implementation along with the overall improvement of the procedure.
