SocioBIM : BIM-to-end user interaction for sustainable building operations and facility asset management Shoolestani, Amir; Shoolestani, Behzad; Froese, Thomas M.; Vanier, Dana J.


Building and facility asset management is a strategic approach to the optimal capital and operational spending on assets to ensure control of cost and risk, asset life, performance, and stakeholder satisfaction. The decisions for sustainable building operations and infrastructure asset management ultimately rests on owners, stakeholders and building occupants. This paper introduces SocioBIM, an approach for building occupants to interact with their building and to provide valuable feedback to the building management. Our research takes advantage of the state-of-the-art and the-state-of-practice Building Information Modeling (BIM) technologies, sustainability assessment techniques, advanced analytics, decision support systems, and integrator platforms. The valuable insight derived from SocioBIM can solve important issues related to model-reality performance gaps, post-occupancy evaluation, sustainability and service level assessment, sustainable building operations and facility asset management. Furthermore, SocioBIM adds value and provides improved competitive advantage to any asset management organization.
