Aligning Data for the Life Cycle

Collaborative Construction

ENR published an excellent article on March 7, 2011 titled "Aligning Data for the Life Cycle." To access Collaborative Construction's analysis of the article follow this link - BUILT - BIM to FM - and let us know what you think. Our take on the article is that more and more institutional owners are demanding BIM to FM and more and more planners, designers, constructors, trade contractors and owners' representatives need to do what is necessary to meet those demands.
