Coventry University Science and Health Building is a new five storey research facility providing teaching and research facilities, creating a ‘superlab’ for biological and analytical sciences, including a community house to test assisted living technologies.
During the Tender period, Coventry University asked for a Level 2 BIM Project, which BAM was able to provide due to their long-established BIM expertise but they recognised they needed a more efficient and collaborative method of gathering asset information.
Activeplan provided the platform and expertise to work with the client and the design team to help develop their Asset Information Requirements (AIR) that were incorporated into the Employers Information Requirements (EIRs) and issued to the supply chain.
Activeplan provided trade contractors and suppliers with data templates to complete that complemented the Revit models they were providing. BAM was able to identify what information was missing or incorrect and empower Activeplan to work with individual firms to provide information that passed validation.
The result was a coordinated Project Information Model that BAM could use to demonstrate that all of the information required by the University had been provided at handover in the industry -standard format for FM handover – COBie.
Having already tested the integration with Planon, the University was able to use the outputs from Activeplan to mobilise their CAFM much more quickly.
