A new report from Navigant Research examines how building information modelling (BIM) adds value to intelligent buildings
According to a new report from Navigant Research, BIM can help accelerate the transformation of buildings into smart, optimised intelligent buildings, as well as advance the development of smart cities, smart infrastructure, and the Energy Cloud.
Tom Machinchick, principal research analyst with Navigant Research said: “The foundation of intelligent building technologies is data and ultimately better information.
“Digitally documenting and integrating all aspects of a building adds value each step of the way.”
According to the report, the most transformative aspect of BIM is in the modelling and application of sophisticated new technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT) and the interconnectivity of a wider range of assets that include city infrastructures, utility grids, transportation networks, and the emerging Energy Cloud.
BIM also allows building tenants, city residents, and businesses to be co-ordinated in a holistic manner to provide value-added services across a wide swath of markets and constituents.
The report, ‘How BIM Adds Value to Intelligent Buildings’ explores how early BIM adoption drives value through the building life cycle and discusses how it supports the evolution of smart cities and the Energy Cloud.
