The role of facilities management in BIM projects

We have supported the British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) in publishing a new good practice guide to help facilities management professionals involved in construction and refurbishment projects understand building information modelling (BIM).

The guide covers the fundamentals of the BIM process, supports facilities managersĀ in their role as productive members of the project or design team as well as help them to understand how they can use BIM data in the longer-term management of assets and services.

On 12 November 2018 the BIFM became the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management (IWFM). The good practice guide is available here on its website, free to IWFM members.
