To recap from the last two weeks, we reviewed assigning unique IDs to model objects, both in base authoring tools, such as Autodesk Revit, first and in aggregating tools, such as Autodesk Navisworks, after the fact. Then, we reviewed the three key elements of a unique ID for equipment identification and tags: 1. Location; 2. [...]
To recap from last week, we reviewed assigning unique IDs to model objects, both in base authoring tools, such as Autodesk Revit, first and in aggregating tools, such as Autodesk Navisworks, after the fact. Today, let’s discuss defining standards for the unique ID itself, as part of your BIM specification.
What are the three key elements [...]
Many new and existing Vela customers and users, from both VDC (Virtual Design and Construction) “power” users to intermediate BIM (Building Information Modeling) users, ask me about best practices around modeling, authoring, aggregating and organizing Building Information Models for Field BIM programs, such as commissioning and owner handover and onto ongoing O&M (Operations & Maintenance). [...]
Field BIM for commissioning and owner handover is the process of harmonizing and integrating as-installed information and documentation from construction quality and commissioning programs in the field and at the point-of-construction with Building Information Modeling (BIM), to create new efficiencies in construction project delivery, in transfer to the owner and operator for beneficial use and [...]
