BIM to FM & GIS: Bringing Facility Lifecycle Data Commissioning to Denver International Airport
Daniel Stonecipher, IMMERSIVx, Inc; Dennis Rodriguez, Denver International Airport
From feasibility to operations and maintenance, capital facility projects like the South Terminal Redevelopment Program (STRP) at the Denver International Airport (DIA) generate enormous amounts of data throughout all phases of the facility lifecycle. Traditionally, facility Owners rely upon the design and construction community to provide facility-related data as a by-product of contract deliverables resulting in fragmented and non-relational data typically geared toward the contributing designer or contractor solicited to provide a small piece of the bigger picture. This data is more often not standardized, incomplete or disjointed for the sharing of relevant information for stakeholders, team members and key decision makers. Owner teams are increasingly finding that it is they that must define relevant organizational BIM standards and project execution plans focused not only on Owner data requirements, but also on highly configured technology and workflow necessities.
This presentation will cover the current BIM to FM & GIS initiative at DIA as a case study that includes a full capital lifecycle data management and process solution by IMMERSIVx delivering a standardized execution environment, and also collects and normalizes existing/new building and asset information throughout planning, design, construction and commissioning phases providing true BIM/FM/GIS as-built data to DIA.
