11:10 Overview of BIM4FM
Jo’s presentation provides an insight into the activities of the BIM4FM group and sets the scene for how FM’s can provide operational expertise and systems thinking in to the design process to improve the outcomes of a project.

Joanna Harris, Manager - Sustainable Construction Group, BSRIA, Chair of CIBSE Maintenance Task Group and Member of BIM4FM
 

11:25
Soft Landings, BIM and a better user experience
How can BIM be applied to facilities management to support Soft Landings and optimise the operation and maintenance of facilities? Using examples of recent projects, Reid will demonstrate the improvements in collaboration, data sharing, and the final quality and productivity of FM services which are achievable using BIM technology.

Reid Cunningham, Strategic Development Director, BAM FM

11:45 Back to the future with BIM
The benefits of applying BIM to new build projects is well recognised, but the value of 'retrofitting' BIM for facilities management is in relatively new territory.

This presentation will explore the main drivers and considerations for the application of BIM to existing buildings; it will outline the potential for carbon and cost savings, benefitting building owners and occupants.

The quality of existing building information is key. The presentation will also look at the challenges and cost considerations in making the capital investment decision to bring all information up to date in a BIM model.

Case study examples will be used to illustrate the approach, processes and wider potential benefits, including linkages with CAFM systems.

12:05
When should a contracting organisation engage with a professional FM partner, during building design stage?
How does the design of a building affect the facilities management and operational service delivery?

The answer is hugely. By including the FM partner at an earlier stage the operation throughout the life of the building is simpler; future headaches and unnecessary costs  are avoided. We will present a couple of case studies which highlight the benefits of working at an early stage with your FM partner, and the pitfalls of not.

Emma Goldring, Director: Bilfinger Europa Facility Management

12:25 Panel debate and Q&A

12:45 Lunch and networking

13:30
The future for BIM and FM - what does it look like?
In this session Paul will discuss the learning of integrated design and maintenance from the process industry, review the issues facing BIM for implementation into existing building stock and provide an insight into potential new solutions - including technology. Paul will then summarise the benefits of BIM, including the integration of building information management systems, computer-aided facilities management and consumption monitoring.

Paul Worland, Director: Emcor UK

13:50
Case study - The manufacturer's viewpoint: how BIM4M2 are supporting manufacturers on their BIM journey and how Tata Steel is implementing BIM

Steve Thompson, BIM Programme Manager, Tata Steel and Chair, BIM4M2

14:10 Panel debate and Q&A

14:30 Refreshments and networking

15:00
"Don't bring me problems, bring me solutions!" The practical challenges of providing FM input into the design process
Based on a current live project, this case study looks at practical examples of the challenges of providing FM operational input into a complex design process, questioning assumptions, achieving changes in design and being listened to by the project team. These are then put into the context of Government Soft Landings (GSL) to see where GSL can enhance the process and where GSL Champions need to be wary of being side lined.

Steve Holton, Partner, Gardiner & Theobald Strategic Asset and FM Consulting
