Abstract:
    Smart Facilities management; a case study of 'Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Center Karachi' using Building Information Modeling and its allied tools to create a centralized database of facilities.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Hospitals need a swift and centralized database of the delicate medical facilities for uninterrupted operations. Complex buildings manage their data manually which is unsmart, inefficient and cumbersome practice. This is the step towards automation of 60% cost demanding phase of Building lifecycle.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   All the complex and delicate public serving infrastructure projects need it. Eg. Hospitals, Shopping Malls, Corporate Offices. This is the need of the construction as well as the Facilities management sector.
How will the solution works
    For the case study, we are using Building Information Modeling and its allied tools for modelling of the Architecture, MEP and HVAC of the building. Real-time data of all the hospital complex inventory including Sophisticated medical equipment having complete information about the Vendor, Warranty Period, Price and Technical details of the equipment would be linked with the Revit file using COBIE extension tool.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Our competitors are manual facilities managers, using conventional paper techniques for keeping the data of the facilities. We are the first group in Academia to implement BIM for facilities management in health and infrastructure sector of Pakistan on such a larger scale.
