Abstract

Despite significant progress for the adoption of BIM in AEC, currently, its adoption for FM has been sparse, scarce and extraneous. There are few cases in the world where robust adoption has taken place; which are able to demonstrate success and are willing to disseminate the positive impact of BIM FM on sustainability, operational efficiency and cost reduction. To date, there is no approach, motivation or support in place to enable the extensive adoption of BIM for FM worldwide. In the UK for instance, the UK BIM initiative, mandate and the Digital Built Britain, cannot count on the participation of FM stakeholders, the government has only started promoting initiatives that could trigger an extensive BIM approach, generating benefits for organisations and more importantly, society as a whole. In this article, data from authors’ various research projects has been put together to generate an agenda for BIM FM implementation. The findings reveal that unless an intervention, such as a mandate for FM services suppliers is put in place, very little will happen with regards to BIM FM.
