AEC-ST Joins BIMStorm
The AEC-ST is a group dedicated to successful implementation of science and technology in the Architectural, Engineering and Construction industries. We are proud to announce they have jumped onboard the BIMStorm AEC Game Changers 2017! We are very excited to have such a strong, diverse group of individuals as part of this virtual collaboration.
The results and outcome of this BIMStorm will be presented at AEC Science and Technology NEXT Conference (more information on this as we get closer to the event). Remember, all participants of this BIMStorm have an opportunity to be showcased at this event. If you are interested and would like to be part of this virtual BIMStorm team, sign up here. http://www.bimstorm.com/join.html
Decisions made early in the planning process have implications for the entire facility life cycle. BIMStorm AEC Game Changers expands the horizon beyond initial design and initial pricing with scenarios for campus, healthcare and airport projects by welcoming the APPA Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Work Group.
TCO Work Group focuses on creating a common framework for owners to manage cost, forecast investment needs and enable data driven decisions for facility asset management. Industry standards enable maintaining a sustainable future for all asset investments.

BIM and COBie Before CAD (BC) 1968
Architects have been wired to understand complex relationships of data in buildings and document them in schedules with types, instances, attributes and more, all related to COBie long before BIM or CAD.
Building documentation, either in hand drawn, CAD and/or BIM formats, inherently creates errors. However, COBie users benefit from the ability to easily spot discrepancies and errors because they are in a structured format. Perhaps the reason for COBie resistance and pushback come from the inability to hide problems.
