CanBIM awards will recognize innovation in project delivery and asset management

Royal Columbian Hospital (Phase 1)

Summit BIM has been nominated by CanBIM for a 2021 Innovation Spotlight Award in the project delivery, asset management & lifecycle category. The award honours Canadian companies that demonstrate leadership and innovation through utilizing digital technologies and processes to improve project delivery and asset management.

“The Innovation Spotlight Awards program is getting more competitive each year with very diverse and innovative submissions coming in from across the membership,” CanBIM said in a statement on the awards website. “This year’s applicants are utilizing digital tools and technology to improve how we design, build and maintain the built environment.”

Summit BIM is nominated for the implementation of BIM on the Royal Columbian Hospital Redevelopment project.

Working with Summit BIM on the Royal Columbian Hospital Redevelopment Project (Phase 1), Fraser Health Authority developed a new strategic BIM process to derive consistent digital data that can be used to drive downstream uses during the entire life cycle of the facility, from design, through construction and on into Facility Maintenance and Operations.

Focusing on the benefits of digital data uses during the entire life cycle of the facility, FHA, with Summit BIM as a consultant, developed a set of BIM requirements to establish common rules and guidelines for the BIM process in new capital projects beginning in 2016.

The BIM requirements provide detailed steps for collaborative utilization of BIM by all the stakeholders, describing the activities and expectations from each collaborator at each phase of the project.

Ongoing virtual coordination and audit of the design against agreed standards ensured that the data collected was robust enough to support downstream use.

This process was supported by Summit BIM’s proprietary, cloud-based platform – BIMFMi®. FMi provides the medium for the collection and collation of data and documents, derived from multiple entities and sources. It also enables the sorting, filtering, and searching of design and construction information, retaining a complete audit trail, and the export of required FMO information in the preferred format for import into the Owner’s computer maintenance management system (CMMS), Computer Aided Facility Management (CAFM).
