If there is an Internet of Things destined to control the smart building it will be dependent on the asset information that building services specialists include in their digital models.
Sustainability and the environment are having huge effects on the way we design systems and make our buildings a comfortable place to work and live. Your role is no longer defined by laying out duct work, pipework and cable tray runs, ready to distribute power, water, steam, heating, and cooling into the building.
Your involvement in the virtual backbone of the building is redefining the skills you need and the systems and software you need to deliver them. Intelligent models require new levels of asset information and conformity to BREEAM assessments and the client’s defined requirements.
Excitech helps you link it all together
We have been involved with Building Information Modelling (BIM) for decades and were one of the pioneer exponents of its use in the development of Heathrow Terminal 5. We can guide you through the complexities of BIM and other similar influences impacting how you should operate and deliver.
One such example is Construction Operations Building Information Exchange (COBie), required on all government sponsored projects in conjunction with BIM Level 2. We will advise you on how, and what, data should be collected and handed over throughout the project delivery.
