Using BIM to help deliver a circular economy
In our second instalment of Bitesize BIM, we will start to look at how BIM can be used to help drive a circular economy. Exploring what defines a ‘smart building’, what discussions need to take place to ensure a ‘smart approach’ is ingrained through BIM and how data that is produced by the design team can be used during construction and integrated into the clients CAFM. We will also consider the importance of device naming, how it can help steer integration with Building Management Systems (BMB) and Energy Monitoring Software (EMS) and how this can potentially lead to the early configuration of maintenance service agreements.
Understanding how to design to create a circular economy is key in the built environment’s bid to achieve net zero. We have a real opportunity to do more as an industry to improve the sustainability and cost-effectiveness of projects by increasing the reuse of resources while reducing the amount of waste.
In this free online bitesize BIM series, Steve Faulkner will demystify the principles of BIM, showcasing examples from recent projects and research in four 20 minute sessions.
