Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology is changing the way buildings are designed and built but having less of an impact on their operation and maintenance. This despite the facts that 90% of a building's life cycle cost, and thus one could say 90% of its opportunity cost, occur after construction is complete; and that BIM, when used correctly, delivers significant life cycle cost and operational benefits. As beneficial as it may be, however, facility management (FM) as a whole has been slow to adopt BIM.
