BuildingSmart and Zuuse Seminar Series Wrapsup

September 1, 2015

The buildingSMART “BIM and Asset Management” Seminar Series that took place throughout August certainly did not disappoint. Held in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, the events were well attended by industry leaders and representatives with a keen interest in BIM and, in particular, its implementation at the Pyrmont Bridge.[…]

VIEW MORE

BuildingSMART Australasia, the industry-led international body for the building and construction industry, teamed up with Zuuse to bring a series of seminars entitled: BIM & Asset Management to Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Sydney throughout August.

Featuring Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority’s senior facilities supervisor, Wayne Sahlman, the events were focused on the value of Building Information Modeling (BIM) for asset management and included a presentation on the recent implementation of Zuuse 3D BIM technology for an iconic Sydney landmark: The Pyrmont Bridge.

With BIM fast becoming the holy grail in facilities management and as asset owners are under increasing pressure to maximise their facility budgets and prolong the life of their assets, BuildingSMART recognised that the industry is in need of greater transparency and knowledge sharing of successful cases of BIM implementation.

“BuildingSMART Australasia recognises that promoting real world implementation is critical for the industry. Sharing key learnings amongst peers, whether it’s private or public sector, will help drive the uptake of BIM in this country,” said Chair of BuildingSMART Australasia, John Mitchell.

Zuuse features in FM Magazine

August 1, 2015

The focus of the August/September 2015 issue of FM Magazine was disruptive technology and how it is redefining the FM industry. This is an exciting topic for the Zuuse Team as we continue to see 3D BIM technology rank at the top of the agenda for facility managers. In this issue, Zuuse was asked to highlight the key considerations for implementing BIM into FM. […]

VIEW MORE

While the concept of Building Information Modelling (BIM) is not new in design and construction, 3D BIM technology is starting to gain traction in FM providing real benefits to asset owners and operators over the long-term.

Asset owners are no longer just requiring their FM personnel to ‘do more with less, but rather are seeking innovative strategies backed by new technologies to deliver results. Specifically, traditional process are being unravelled by BIM-based technology, resulting in manual, paper-based processes being replaced by software that thrusts an asset into a 3D, cloud-based and mobile world.

Whether small or large in size, public or private, a new or existing build, BIM is said to be a catalyst for change and it seems all assets will inevitably be exposed to this paradigm shift of BIM in FM.

Zuuse features in Facility Perspectives Magazine

July 1, 2015

In this issue of Facility Perspectives Magazine Zuuse CEO, Jason Lilienstein, writes about BIM in FM – “The Real Deal”.  3D BIM is fast becoming the Holy Grail in space, facilities and asset management, promising unparalleled power in operating buildings and infrastructure. There is however uncertainty around the real benefits that BIM provides[…]

VIEW MORE

While the specific needs of asset owners and operators differ, there are three reasons for the adoption of BIM in FM which are discussed in this article:

1. 3D-based central data store
2. Time, labour and replacement part costs
3. Energy costs and sustainability

In this feature, we also discuss how one gets the BIM ball rolling in practice and answers the important question of what can be done if a 3D model does not exist.

It is possible to move to a BIM in FM solution for existing assets that may not have a 3D model, and that have limited information. Incorporating BIM in FM doesn’t necessarily mean that you require fully detailed, as-built (LOD500) 3D models that are time-intensive and, consequently, expensive to produce. There are solutions that provide a pathway into 3D by breaking down the level of detail required into manageable, cost-effective stages, combined with a fully functional solution that operates equally with a basic model through to a fully modelled facility.

Zuuse features in Engineers Australia Magazine

June 1, 2015

With a proven ROI in the design and construction phase, BIM has revolutionised the way that buildings and other assets are constructed, aptly summed up by the old adage “measure twice, cut once”. In this issue of Engineer’s Australia Magazine Zuuse was asked to detail the way in which 3D BIM was successfully implemented for the operation & maintenance of the Pyrmont Bridge.[…]

VIEW MORE

For the Pyrmont Bridge, mobility in the field, 3D visualisation, a single point of truth for data storage, digital work order processing and intuitive reporting were critical components for the solution sought.

Using Zuuse Capture, a mobile inspection app on iPads, configured to the requirements specified by SHFA and RMS guidelines, the RMS inspectors were able to inspect and capture details of all bridge elements digitally, with the data synced to a database linked to the 3D model.

This provided immediate efficiencies around data capture, storage and retrieval, allowing the SHFA team to visualise, analyse and report on the results immediately, as well as seamlessly roll key data into their maintenance and capital programs.

SYDNEY, Australia (17th March 2015) — Zuuse, a 3D BIM technology provider for the Facilities Management (FM) sector, announced today that it has successfully launched its software with the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority (SHFA) for the operation and management of the Pyrmont Bridge.

In a bid to more effectively and efficiently manage the inspection, maintenance and remedial work of the 7,500+ structural components that make up the Pyrmont Bridge, the SHFA sought an intelligent software solution to replace the previously manual, paper-based processes for NSW Road and Maritime Services (RMS) bridge inspectors. RMS are responsible for maintaining over 5,000 bridge assets in NSW.

“It was evident that we needed a better way to collect, analyse and report on critical data that comes from the regular condition assessments of the bridge,” said Wayne Sahlman, Senior Facilities Supervisor at SHFA.

“The ability to collect inspection data and photos digitally on iPads, automatically link that data back to the 3D model and instantaneously report was of the utmost importance. Zuuse was able to deliver a cloud-based, mobile software solution that will provide us with significant ongoing business benefits,” Sahlman added.

Pivotal to the project was Zuuse’s mobile app – Zuuse Capture – which enhances Zuuse’s already proven technology solution that enables 3D models and all associated information to be utilised through the entire FM phase.

“This project has been extremely exciting for the entire team here at Zuuse. We’ve invested significant innovation in Zuuse Capture and we expect it to have a positive impact on the efficiency and productivity of inspecting and maintaining the Pyrmont Bridge, not only in the immediate future but for the life of the asset,” said CEO of Zuuse, Jason Lilienstein.

“Our priority is to bring intelligence, via technology, to asset managers to facilitate better operational, tactical and strategic decisions across the entire organisation. We’ve managed to achieve this for the Pyrmont Bridge by working with SHFA, blending everyday core functionality with 3D, iPads and open source IFC files, which we believe is an industry first for BIM in FM,” Lilienstein added.

The Pyrmont Bridge is one of the world’s oldest electrically operated swingspan bridges, traversing Darling Harbour, Sydney. The heritage listed ironbark and steel bridge was opened in 1902 and has been a major Sydney landmark ever since, with more than 5 million pedestrians crossing the bridge each year.
