Abstract

There is a paucity of literature that examines building information modelling (BIM) for asset management within
the architecture, engineering, construction and owner-operated (AECO) sector. This paper therefore presents a
thorough review of published literature on the latest research and standards development that impact upon
BIM and its application in facilities management (FM) during the operations and maintenance (O&M) phase of
building usage. The purpose is to generate new ideas and provide polemic clarity geared to intellectually challenge
readers from across a range of academic and industrial disciplines. The findings reveal that significant challenges
facing the FM sector include the need for: greater consideration of long-term strategic aspirations;
amelioration of data integration/interoperability issues; augmented knowledge management; enhanced
performance measurement; and enriched training and competence development for facilities managers to better
deal with the amorphous range of services covered by FM. Future work is also proposed in several key areas and
includes: case studies to observe and report upon current practice and development; and supplementary
research related to concepts of knowledge capture in relation to FM and the growing use of BIM for asset
management.
