    End User Benefits?

    I work for a small university and we are transitioning to REVIT. Typically any models we get would come from consultants and Architects. Once we have these models how can we effectively use them as an end user? The obvious initial thought is space planning but, looking for suggestions for additional benefits.

    I only know one person that works on the facility management side. She's more active in another forum, so you might ask your question there: https://forums.augi.com/forumdisplay...ost&order=desc.

      facility management, space planning, renovations, things of that nature I imagine are what you could use a finished model at a university. Also coordination workflows with model comparisons, clash detection and resolution and the communication workflow around that.

        Please reverse the question.

        What do you want to use them for?

        That will heavily inform what kind of model and embedded data you want to receive and give you a good start to a document with the requirements.

        Just handing over a model where there has been no communications/expectations beforehand is bound to be a disappointing experience for both parties.

          I second what Bjorn is asking, what do you want to do with these models?
          The accuracy and completeness of any models you receive will only depend on the care factor of whoever built it, I see tons of dodgy stuff everyday.

            You could also take a look at the BIM Execution Plans that other universities have made. It has been a while since I've looked, but I believe Penn State, Indiana, Western Michigan, and UCSD all have some available.
