Lifecycle modelling, Asset Information Models, Totex, Smart Cities, Internet of Things and Big Data are all seen as future consumers of the Information element from within BIM. However, the AEC industry presently struggles to move from paper deliverables to the needs of delivering structured information in the form of Construction Operation Building information exchange (COBie). Whilst a project BIM may become a node within a Smart City, likewise a BIM product object is a node within a BIM project and then the issues with object standards and interoperable data exchange multiply exponentially. Programme cont. BIM Object Product Libraries are often heralded as the solution to standardised data and IFC as the solution to interoperability. Yet the failure of BIM Library Objects to meet consistent standards increases risk, liability and inefficiency, not just to the BIM process, but also to the future consumers of the data. Within the session Paul Oakley Associate Director for BIM at the Building Research Establishment (BRE) explores the BIM Library Object issues, the standardisation requirements and the solution needed to bridge the Information gap between Manufacturers, Designers, Constructors and Operators along with the importance of data dictionaries as a method for defining and validating BIM object data.
