Singapore, 13 May 2013 – Archibus will deliver a groundbreaking presentation on Creating Intelligent Buildings and Facilities using Ubiquitous Infrastructure and Facilities Management (UIFM™) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) 4.0 at the Asia Office Space Congress.
Manager of office space and the professionals charged with designing it now have an array of different technologies that they can employ to improve efficiency in the workplace and the efficiency of their management. The ubiquitous environment is one where an interconnected array of technologies push information through to designers, users and managers of space on an ongoing and real time basis.
Dennis Cheng, Vice President – Asia Pacific Region, ARCHIBUS Inc. notes “Space information is the foundation of facilities management in the organization and this can be better managed to achieve ubiquitous environment through visualization and consolidation using combinations of technologies such as CAD (computer aided design), BIM (building information modeling), GIS (geographic information systems), and other virtual reality based systems.”
Taking a value driven approach by implementing life cycle management and Intuitive Business Transformation (IBT™) can create significant savings for both building owners and occupiers who are willing to take advantage of the convergence of technologies that has taken place in recent years. The benefits are now not only seen within a few floors of a building but at a building level and expands out to communities and neighborhoods that can also be connected seamlessly.
Chen will illustrate these advances in a case study of technology implementation at Nanyang Technology University (NTU) of Singapore as well as drawing upon other regional examples such as Taipei Metro, Ministry of Public Works in Malaysia, Asian Development Bank and at Chinese electronics giant Huawei.
Apart from this useful session on designing intelligent facilities – and managing facilities intelligently!-the conference will bring together corporate occupiers form regional heads of corporate real estate to heads of facilities together with real estate consultants, project managers and designers who will be discussing multiple other ways to reduce real estate and workplace related costs and increase worker productivity.
Real estate experts and building owners will discuss real estate trends; designers will discuss creating space for productivity; project professional will debate partnering strategies for social, economic and environmental sustainability and finally, speakers will look at who’s moving and how to cope with a big move project.
