Prior to the project completion and full BIM hand-off, VBL Senior Project Managers and Principals work with Owners, GCs, and Facilities Management firms to determine the specific CMMS, FM and CAFM software to be integrated.
“The VBL team has been very accommodating to meet our project schedule and ensure a successful project. VBL consistently exceeded our expectation in their contributions towards the completion of this project.”

How it’s done.
Determining which level of support expected from the BIM and technology acumen of the responsible FM team is paramount in the choices of technology and software at this stage to ensure the greatest ROI from the BIM throughout the project lifecycle.
Facilities Management through BIM allows you to have a one stop source of all project knowledge which greatly benefits the Facilities Management team and allows for a quicker ROI for the project Owner. The intelligent and information rich BIM allows access to:
- Architectural plans
- Mechanical components
- Electric, plumbing, and fire protection elements
It also has the ability to combine specific product information such as manufacturer, warranty, commissioning and maintenance specifics.
