Enterprise Application

Facility Management Application >

Client Profile

A USA based IT firm with a global presence who is a leading provider of BMI services, offering modern methods of management for commercial buildings designed, built, managed and retrofitted using Building Information Modeling (BMI).


Problem Statement

The client needed an application that integrates various systems used for building lifecycle management such as Building Information Models (BIM), Building Automation Systems (BAS), Facility Management Systems (CMMS / CAFM / IWMS), Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). This integrated application needs to perform continuous monitoring of the building’s development, enforcing better maintenance practices and resulting in significant reduction in labor hours and energy savings.


Solution Delivered

zCon designed and implemented the complex application in three modules. Here are details of the functionality of these modules.

Facility Development

The Facility Development application helps architects, engineers and contractors build high quality models with a 3D view of facilities that are useful for facility owners in the operations and maintenance phase of the facility lifecycle. BIM, with real-time facility operations, acquires data via meters and sensors in the building automation system (BAS) and facility management (FM) software. Users can edit building data in a secured online environment in a collaborative mode with a unique way of extracting and editing. BIM technology facilitates planners, designers, and builders to collect and manage huge amounts of data of building and campus design and construction. BIM includes geographic analyses like best path analysis. With BIM and GIS integrated, a suite of new analysis options is available.

Facility Maintenance

BIM (Building Information Management) is revolutionizing facility management industry. FM (“Facilities Maintenance”) provides real-time integration of BIM with the Building Automation Systems (BAS); with CMMS/CAFM/IWMS software like IBM Maximo, ARCHIBUS, AssetWorks AiM, Accruent FAMIS, TMA System’s webTMA, Corrigo or others, and GIS from ESRI (ArcGIS) and Google (Google Earth).
FM serves Central Facility Repository (CFR) to keep data updated in databases. FM shares the 3D interface used for Facility Development enabling interactive, virtual, preventive maintenance inspections and quicker response to service requests.

EM (Energy Management)

Energy efficiency is one major criterion for LEED building certification and credits for energy efficiency are awarded based on design simulations, not measured building energy performance. The application introduces the first commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution that allows for comparing predicted energy performance (BIM energy modeling) with actual performance by using sensors and meters managed by Building Automation Systems. EM processes a continuous flow of data between BIM/COBie and the Department of Energy “Energy Plus” energy simulation program for BIM energy analysis. The EM users compare energy consumptions while also identifying zones and components deviating from the norm.


Benefits to Client

By integrating separate datasets, the integrated application provides the Facility Manager an increased ability to analyze operational data; thus, enabling a holistic approach to Fixed Capital Asset management.

zCon is the only development partner to develop the main application and required adaptors for integration with third party facility management systems. zCon has supported this client for 6 years and is currently migrating the product to the state of the art technology.
