The Building Information Modelling for Asset Management (BIM-AM) Standards and Guidelines is based on asset templates developed by EMSD, which summarizes information needed for over 21 types of Electrical and Mechanical (E&M) systems that require maintenance services in Hong Kong. The BIM-AM Standards standardizes BIM modelling, coding and information compiled during the construction stage to handover for building operation. During design and construction stage, BIM is used as a design visualization and coordination tool. Meanwhile, asset information should be gradually built up in the BIM model so that by the end of the construction stage, the BIM model becomes an Asset Information Model (AIM) for handover to asset management.
The BIM-AM System makes fault reporting and job assignment much easier and faster for all concerned for the repair and maintenance of building systems, as a pre-diagnosis of a fault’s root cause can be made offsite anywhere, anytime, thanks to the rich, real-time 3D information available. The BIM-AM System also works with ad-hoc wireless devices such as sensors and CCTV cameras to capture enriched real-time data for fault analysis. Onsite repair can also become faster and more effective, with easier safety compliance and documentation, streamlining processes in real life applications. It can also embed high quality, animated 3D repair manuals from manufacturers that can be accessed anywhere anytime to make repairs easier. The BIM-AM System has applications outside of routine operations and maintenance, for instance during the preparation of Alterations, Additions and Improvement (AA&I) works.
