Proposal for Southern Development to adopt a Building Information Modeling methodology for home design. Presented on Jan. 12, 2007 by: Robert Kendall AIA Matthew J. Waychoff
Agenda 1. What is BIM? 2. Who is using it? 3. How do we get there? 4. What if it works? 5. Where should we start? 6. How can Micea help? 7. Other discussion topics… Example image from Argos.com
What is: Building Information Model(ing)? A BIM is a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its entire life-cycle from earliest conception to demolition. NBIMS. BIM as a noun: a shared digital representation of the physical and functional characteristics of a facility BIM as a verb: collaboration by different stakeholders at different phases of the life cycle of a facility to insert, extract, update or modify information in the BIM to support and reflect the roles of that stakeholder Data Info Knowledge Wisdom 1
Other emerging buzzwords: buildingSMART Integrated Practice Virtual Design and Construction 1
BIM XD: 2D = Length & Width 3D = Height 4D = Time 5D = Cost 6D = ??? XD = BIM 1 Example image from Keymark.com
Who is using BIM? AECO+ Architects Engineers Construction Contractors Building Owners and Operators Design and Technology Consultants Others… 2
Who is using BIM? http://www.facilityinformationcouncil.org/bim/members.php 2
Who is using BIM? General Services Administration The General Services Administration (GSA) has established for all major projects (prospectus-level) receiving design funding in Fiscal Year 2007 and beyond, GSA will REQUIRE spatial program BIMs be the minimum requirements for submission to Office of Chief Architect (OCA) for Final Concept approvals by the Public Buildings Service (PBS) Commissioner and the Chief Architect. http://www.facilityinformationcouncil.org/bim/pdfs/NBIMS_Awareness_Handout.pdf 2
How do we get there? strategic and incremental adoption of 3D, 4D, BIM technologies 3
How can Micea help? Can establish policy to phase in 3D, 4D, and BIM adoption for all major projects Can lead 3D-4D-BIM pilot application on current capital projects Will provide expert support and assessment for ongoing capital projects to incorporate 3D, 4D, and BIM technologies Always assessing industry readiness and technology maturity Developing Home Builder-specific incentives for 3D-4D-BIM Developing solicitation and contractual language for 3D-4D-BIM services Creating partnerships with BIM vendors, professional associations, open standard organizations, and academic/research institutions 6
Things to know: spatial program validation 4D phasing laser scanning energy and sustainability courts design validation
What if we dont change? Individuals in business and individual project teams will continue to repetitively create and re-create local, non re-usable, non- interoperable solutions to the same problems. Businesses will continue to take longer than necessary to get to market with new products and services because it will take far longer than necessary for parties collaborating on a project to share their ideas and communicate specific results. Information will continue to be entered/re-entered an average of seven times rather than entered correctly once and used many times. Many more resources than necessary will be consumed during the life of a facility because the combined performance of materials and components wasnt known until a facility was built and operated for many years. http://www.facilityinformationcouncil.org/bim/pdfs/NBIMS_Awareness_Handout.pdf
General AEC industry standard modellers? ! None are specific to residential !
Home building industry specific solutions? ! Either too expensive, not enough features, or no one knows it !
Synthesis vs. Analysis: the information contained in the model shall be interoperable to allow computer to computer exchanges the exchange be based on open standards the requirements for exchange must be capable of being defined in contractual language
