Over the years, many contractors have asked us about the best way to handover BIM 360 data. In addition to popular formats like COBie, we now have a tool that lets you present your owner with a turn-key asset management system: Autodesk Building Ops.
Building Ops is a mobile-first building maintenance software solution that helps contractors deliver a better handover experience to their owners. For owners, it helps to begin operations on day one and better meet the needs of their mobile workforce.
Get your owner going on Day 1
Most owners are managing their building operations with pencil and paper or (if you're lucky) Excel spreadsheets. Those that have a Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) often need 18-24 months to enter that data. That’s a painful way to begin operating a building.
With Building Ops, you can import your BIM 360 Field data with the click of a button.
Now, your owner can immediately start managing and maintaining the new building.
Minimize warranty service requests
Giving your owner a better way to manage his building minimizes your exposure to warranty service requests. With Building Ops, you can schedule the preventive maintenance services to make sure the assets are being cared for properly on day one.
Building Ops was designed to give the building’s mobile technicians the information they need, when they need it. For example, if the equipment manuals and PDFs are associated with the assets during installation, they will also appear in Building Ops. You’ll know that you have done everything you can to make sure they have access to the proper documentation.
Offer new services
Some contractors we have spoken to are using Building Ops as a way to offer new services to their owners. A few examples we've heard include:
- Conditioning the BIM data for handover
- Setting up preventive maintenance schedules
- Assigning the work to the appropriate vendors
- Managing the building for the owner
This is sure to get everyone excited since, as we all know, more services means more money!
So if you’ve been searching for a way to transition your BIM 360 equipment data to your owner, take a look at Building Ops. With a click of a button, your owner can be up and running with a mobile-first asset management system. Even better, Building Ops is free to set up. You can try it for as long as you need. When it is time to maintain the building, simply purchase the subscription.
