Aims and objectives

Students in this unit will facilitate the planning of connected BIM Uses to capture existing buildings and assets, convert them to BIM models along with associated, structured data compatible with a client's CAFM solution.
Hands-on practical application with appropriate software and hardware will be used to capture existing conditions and explore the necessary workflows to translate the information to BIM modelling.
The data collection methodology for facility operations will be examined and the conclusions will be considered against the capability of the Australian supply chain within Design and Construction phases.
Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)

Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:

1. Outline the different objectives that can be met from the use of scanning tools and the methods by which the spatial data can be viewed and combined.
2. Create basic workflows of capturing internal spaces using laser scanning tools.
3. Use BIM Authoring Software to create BIM objects from scanning tool outputs and explore methods by which maintainable assets can be appropriately represented.
4. Appraise the tools for capturing asset data associated with spaces and maintainable assets as part of, and extension of, the collection of operations and maintenance data and documentation.
5. Review the capability of design and construction stakeholders across the different tiers of the construction industry and examine their capability to fulfil the BIM Use Digital Asset Management Information.
6. Define a basic standard of model and data delivery that would be suitable within the organisational context for new and refurbishment projects.
