A Golden Thread for Asset Management
11:00 - 11:45
As investigations into the causes of the Grenfell catastrophe progressed, everyone seemed amazed that no one involved in refurbishing or managing the building knew all the products and materials that had been installed. This is a shocking fact. For many years, as an industry we have been struggling to produce adequate handover information. Just as importantly, when it does exist, it is not updated as things are replaced. Dame Judith Hackitt recommended that BIM should be mandated on all HRRBs of 10 storeys or more: “Having BIM-enabled datasets during occupation means that duty-holders will have a suitable evidence base through which to deliver their responsibilities and maintain safety and integrity throughout the life-cycle of a building. Information can be updated as and when changes are made during the building life-cycle”. Although it is true that, implemented perfectly, the BIM processes can address many of these issues, we are still reliant on people. It is seldom deployed perfectly, particularly from an asset information perspective. In this session, Andrew aka ‘Das’, Lloyd and George, will look at the process of how to implement that Golden Thread to maximum effect, using the relationship they have built as a team on collective DMA, Airey Miller and Activeplan projects. They start with the end in mind, with a focus on providing the whole supply-chain with an explicit set of asset information requirements.
