This post is a primer, all the info is UnderNDA, so excuse my lack of citations and images. I am sure we all will be using this procedures more and more in the near future, so there will be plenty of examples to illustrate this. For now, I am slowly unveiling a big "what if"... so big that I cannot wait to see it fully working... Imagine for a second a world where the Design and Construction team hands over a model (just like Phil said they would) to the Operations and Management team, that in turn share vital information with the Facility Management team and they all inform the need for a major update of the building, giving specific information of their requirements to the next go of the Design and Construction lads. Nice, isn't it? Are you doing it? Are you aware of someone doing it?... This 360 turn of the Information model is BIM 360. So, BIM 360 is all about using data from different sources, and managing all sorts of information. The problem is that many times
A random exploration of challenges and side projects, recollection of thoughts and breadcrums of projects too small to be material or too large to be possible...
