BIM & Digital engineering: make

Brought to you by the CIBSE BIM & Digital Steering Group

The processes of building services construction, commissioning and facilities management are all capable of being enhanced by digital tools and processes. This stream looks at some specific areas that have already been improved by some digital practices.

Stream time: 14.00 – 16.30, Wednesday 22nd November 2017

Paddy Conaghan Consultant, Hoare Lea

14:00 - 14:45

WF1 Commissioning for build offsite

Build offsite is increasingly seen as a better way of fabricating building services. Collecting services into transportable units for factory construction and site assembly allows factory level precision and cleanliness. On-site activities are then reduced to assembly only and fabrication can benefit from assembly line efficiencies. Our panel will outline their methods and future visions for how this technology is Continue Reading »

WF2 Capturing commissioning data

The process of digital capture of commissioning data and adding that data back into the model is an emerging set of tools and processes. Allowing commissioning engineers and facility managers to see what equipment set points were used to achieve system functionality and the automated recording of that information from the field will be the focus of this session.   Continue Reading »

WF3 Digital Facility Management

Concepts and processes for FM that use the BIM data generated through design and construction and how they can pre-load later works models. This will be a how-to session, showing an example process for transferring data from the design, construction and commissioning phases to operations. The importance of much of what data is captured during the previous phases will now Continue Reading »
