Building Information Modeling Facilities Management (BIM FM)

Building Information Modeling and its use in Facilities Management, or BIM FM, is a means of organizing and accessing information about a building, such as its energy usage or output, in a 3-D format.  

The tool, also described as a “model,” is typically utilized through a custom-made database used to manage the building or facility. The biggest advantage to this type of facility management is that the user can visually “move,” or search, the database without needing an intrinsic understanding of the facility.
