Using BIM to design for safe and smart maintenance

No matter how smart a building, or an entire city, might be, there will always be a requirement for some sort of physical maintenance of structures and assets.  Smart designs might reduce the frequency of maintenance activities but should also facilitate the performance of these tasks, such as by providing reasonable means of access to assets. 

Clients may recognize that certain maintenance tasks will be difficult-to-manage but could agree that they are nonetheless the best overall option given a range of competing constraints.  Occasionally, clients find themselves left with maintenance tasks that impose unanticipated and significant challenges, risks and costs over the life of the building. 

Building Information Modelling (BIM) can be a powerful and creative tool for assisting designers and their clients to consider and find solutions to maintenance challenges.  This session aims to explain what challenges are and how we may overcome them with the application of the BIM process.
