In Chicago, the BIM/IPD Group is making big strides promoting Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD).  Come show you interest and support this month! 

"Designing Building Information Models for Building Owners"

Kristine Fallon Associates, Inc. (www.kfa-inc.com) will present a major research project on structuring Building Information Models (BIM) correctly to produce both Construction-Operations Building information exchange (COBie) and IFC Facility Management model view outputs.

Building owners are driving adoption of BIM that delivers on the promise of seamless data transfer from design through construction to operations and maintenance. However, this is technically difficult to achieve.

The US Army Corps of Engineers funded KFA's research to provide deeper insight into the possibilities, pitfalls and technology issues.

KFA will also share insights into GSA's recently published BIM Guide for Facility Management.

Advanced Solutions, Inc. (www.advsolinc.com) is sponsoring food and beverages for the event on Thursday, February23th starting at 5:30 pm at AIA Chicago's Board Room, 35 East Wacker.(www.aiachicago.org). The event is organized by the Chicago BIM/IPD Group at www.LinkedIn.com
