This is achieved through the deployment of the technology to allow the parties to a contract to be better able to determine what needs to be done, when, and how. True digital or virtual prototyping allows teams to build once in the model and once on site – with zero defects and no reworking. This is not to say that change does not occur which it always will on projects, but here again, BIM allows the design to be better understood by the project stakeholders and then validated and verified by the design and delivery team. The first requirement some deal with when entering the BIM process will be the need to create Employers Information Requirements (EIRs), but these require a degree of context when examining how to maximise a specific asset refurbishment or new build project. Supporting the EIRs should be questions relating to Asset Information Requirements (AIRs) and Organisational Information Requirements (OIRs) for the project (amongst other essential
BIM, NEC3 & IoT SAM Asset Lifecycle BIM, NEC3 & IoT SAM Design & Construct (BIM) Procure (NEC3) • Operating costs typically cover: maintain, repair, replace, retrofit, overhaul, inventory and operations including energy consumption, service contracts, etc. • Indirect cost impact influencing TCO include asset down-time, asset longevity and asset performance Dispose & Decommission Asset Operate (Smart Asset Mgt) • Smart Asset Management will reduce TCO + enable IoT + integrate and automate procurement process • 80% of Total cost of Ownership of asset within Operate phase Our focus has already captured various benefits, and we are now tackling ‘energy’ opportunities. This energy focus could be targeted and approached from numerous angles, but the obvious starting point will be low lying quick wins e.g. lighting air handling units and bringing them to life as part the creation of a differentiating service and solutions for clients. It is seen as a modular, joined-up service and a solution underpinned by SAM, demonstrating tangible business outcomes via IoT, mobile devices, Big-Data, BIM and NEC3 methodologies and articulated with the use of Augmented Reality to help deliver the message. The opportunities surrounding air handling (AH) units for the IoT SAM offering is substantial for clients as well as manufacturers. Following consultation and engagement with industry professionals and highly experienced facilities managers it was noted that AH units are key components in all environments. The ability of the SAM offering to recognise, with ‘realtime’ and ‘independent’ data outputs, the increased loads applied to AH motors leading to increased time and energy usage is of significant benefit to facilities management teams, as well as finance directors and all those interested in reducing costs, improving environmental credentials and introducing smarter working practices to all estates programs. “BIM from the outset allows project teams to collaborate, this has been seen to take hold particularly in the design stage of the project, and is increasingly capable of supporting and driving collaboration in construction and through to operation. This is achieved through the deployment of the technology to allow the parties to a contract to be better able to determine what needs to be done, when, and how.” The above is in addition to the initial outputs, which, include a reduction in down- time, improvements in inventory management, cost savings and equally important, greater collaboration, understanding and communication between decision makers, financial directors, CEOs, estates and facilities groups. Other benefits as we see it will include the following; Maintainer/FM productivity and informed decision making; 31
