You have a Master Plan, but do you have a Master Model?

Columbus Regional Hospital’s (CRH) desire to evolve patient care has kept them agile & innovative and received many awards. With an upcoming expansion of the ED & cancer center and a new loading dock & utility tunnel, CRH started to think about what happens after the project team leaves. CRH had a master plan, but wanted a master model to use as the source/standards for their operations. CRH engaged BIM consultant Hutton & Hutton and Pepper Construction in the process. CRH wanted to know how the design/construction teams develop the model and the project team to understand how they use the data for their operations – so they could develop a process to deliver the model/data in a way CRH can use going forward. The resulting solution allowed CRH to pick its software platform at a later date and still establish specific standards that would work on future projects. Our presentation shares our process, the plan used to develop the master model & lessons learned/best practices.

1.  Advantages of BIM for the owner – why CRH chose to move to a BIM delivery and the implications of using the model for operations.
2.  How to develop a FM tool – the process, data requirements & team roles - and create standards for delivering the model before selecting software.
3.  Best practices for a model-driven project approach – how BIM drove collaboration, lean practices and technology for problem-solving.
4.  How to analyze whether or not your organization is suited and/or ready to use a Master Model and how to get the process started.
