BUILD DATA THAT
WORKS FOR YOU
Use BIM intelligently. Create processes and
deliverables to meet your strategic goals and
enhance the value of your building.
Unlock the value of your building data
Improve project quality.
Evaluate design decisions on an ongoing basis, resolve coordination issues early, and increase the use of pre-fabricated components. A well planned process increases the quality your project teams can deliver.
over time and cost
Identify and resolve issues in a virtual environment. Coordination of systems prior to their installation in the field, enables prefabrication, and reduces rework, project delays and project costs resulting in a higher quality finished product.
Instantly find all the information known about your building, at all times from design through to Operations in an interactive, visual format. No more searching paper drawings or O & M manuals, the information is just a click away.
Build a rock-solid BIM process from the ground up
Summit BIM works with designers, engineers, contractors, and owners to enhance building value by creating consistent, usable information and data.
Working collaboratively, we explore and clarify the strategic goals the Owner and Facility Management team would like the facility data to meet.
From the outset we identify use cases. Will the data drive quality assurance during design and construction? How will we mitigate risk during construction? Are we collecting and collating the data and documents required for Maintenance and Operations?
During this phase we:
- Run workshops to define goals and uses of BIM.
- Define the digital requirements including processes and deliverables.
- Establish the roles and responsibilities during design and construction.
The overall aim is to develop a specification that controls the BIM process for your projects, clearly defining the required processes and protocols that are to be followed so that robust quality data is generated.
Building data is inherently generated during a design phase that leverages a BIM process. However, different models - architectural, engineering, HVAC, and plumbing - will host different data. Creating the information around an asset for managing the building requires input from each discipline in a planned, structured manner.
During this phase we:
- Undertake quality control checks - comparing actual output with established BIM requirements.
- Confirm that data is where we expect it to be.
- Complete variance audits that pinpoint what has changed between shared models.
We align and coordinate project team effort in executing the BIM process through ongoing audits and assessment of data to ensure that it supports the identified goals and uses.
Our unique data auditing methods ensure that all participants contribute to creating the data and documents required to maintain and operate the facility over its life span.
Using a propriety cloud-based interface, Summit BIM organizes the design data into bite-size chunks, sorted to expose information only to the responsible party.
During this phase we:
- Allow all stakeholders to access the information they need utilizing our unique FMi data viewer.
- Implement a controlled BIM process that captures BIM data from design through construction to facilities management.
At handover, the entire project data set is provided to clients through a desktop app. This provide a robust foundation for Maintenance and Operations.
We can also assist clients with the digital transfer to CMMS solutions using a CAD, BIM or COBie workflow.
Avoid the gap
Transform the handover process. With Summit BIM’s cloud based BIMFMi solution Owners and their FMO team receive the information they need to operate their facility at handover. No lag time. No manual re-entry of information. No missed pieces of data or documents.
Assets are tracked from the end of the design phase onward. Gaining insight early on into which assets will be part of the facility allow Owners and Operators to reduce risk, improve quality, and make timely strategic management and planning decisions.
BIMFMi becomes the single source of truth as responsible parties upload the required data and documents – warranty information, asset ID’s, O&M manuals – relative to critical assets into the database. At handover, the facility data set can be transferred directly to a CMMS system of the Owner’s choice or maintained in the cloud.
“To many people, Building Information Modeling is synonymous with 3D modeling. But BIM goes deeper. Like an iceberg, 90% is below the surface and this is where the true value lies, in the data that drives the process. Exposing and using this data allows BIM to reach its full potential.”
