BAM Construct’s BIM and CAFM integration project with Autodesk and FSI wins at the i-FM annual Technology in FM Awards
Congratulations to BAM Construct, Autodesk and FSI for winning the Operational Category Award at the annual i-FM Technology in FM Awards for the BIM and CAFM integration project.
The collaborative "Project Robin" uses FSI's Concept Evolution™ web-CAFM solution, Autodesk's Revit and BIM 360 Field products and the combined skills of both organisations together with the entire BAM team from design, construction and facilities management. Information is pulled from BIM 3D models into BAM's FM workflow systems to improve the efficiency and cost effectiveness of the way clients can manage their buildings. The project demonstrates the benefits of building information modelling (BIM) beyond design and construction and into the operational phase of any piece of infrastructure.
In the Operational Category, the purpose of each piece of technology is to help in-house facilities managers and the employees of FM providers deliver a better service for clients. The measurement of success and the future implementation of the technology across the entire FM industry are the two most important factors. The judges were ultimately convinced by the transformational nature of Project Robin and its potential to change the entire FM industry if successful.
The awards were announced as part of the Workplace Futures Conference on 11th February. Kath Fontana and Reid Cunningham from BAM Construct, along with Karl Broom from FSI, accepted the award.
