TOPIC: BIM – A Technology for Sustainability by Marty Chobot of FM Systems and Maurice Johnson of HagerSmith Design

This Presentation will cover the following:

  • Analyzing building environmental impacts (energy, water, greenhouse gas emissions, recycling, waste and others)
  • Forecasting sustainability projects’ financial impacts (net present value, internal rate of return, ROI, payback period) and environmental impacts
  • Managing building assessments and certifications using rating systems like Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), Green Globes, or BRE Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM)
  • Engage occupants and management with enterprise access to sustainability information and dashboardsIn the past two years, building information modeling (BIM) has emerged as a revolutionary new technology in the building industry, and is dramatically changing the way new facilities are designed and constructed.

There are numerous benefits to this new technology. Information is centralized, giving everyone access to the same data and greatly improving communication and collaboration between stakeholders as a building evolves. Also, the embedded intelligence makes it possible for fast, easy analysis of other important considerations such as energy consumption and resource usage that are extremely valuable in designing efficient buildings.It’s this centralized design data found in BIM models that is the foundation for a good sustainability program. To make an organization more environmentally friendly, facilities and real estate professionals must focus on three key components: 1) managing building performance, 2) managing evaluations and 3) tracking projects. BIM will allow the owners and occupants of building to better collaborate with AEC firms to gather the reliable, real-time data that is essential for a successful sustainability program.

Join us as Maurice Johnson, project designer for HagerSmith, and Marty Chobot, vice president of product management for FM:Systems, discuss BIM models and their impact on building a credible and successful sustainability program.Hope to see you there!
