Big Data, Big BIM, Big Deal
In his presentation, Big Data, Big BIM, Big Deal, Darren will explore the opportunities for innovation in building design and construction and facilities management through the utilization of big data and building information modeling (BIM). The potential for understanding the finite information in a building during design & construction transfers directly to the finite information in a building during operation. This data set provides ongoing understanding of the building / facility’s performance including energy, carbon footprint, building safety, space utilization, ongoing maintenance and all mapped to time and money. Building design has always involved large quantities of data, however now with big data and BIM, we are poised to access, analyze and act upon it as a whole.
