This facility will be an innovation center for Roche Diagnostics worldwide. In Dec 2017, they made the decision to enter a long-term lease on a parcel in Santa Clara at the intersection of Scott Blvd and Central Expressway. This campus consists of five empty buildings. They currently have about ~400 employees and are in the process of fitting out the campus to add an additional 500 employees by year’s end.  They will focus on how the Site Services and Facilities teams help enable innovative science through partnership and collaboration and use of new technologies for security, collaboration spaces and building management systems.

The Art of Storytelling 2.0

 

Facility managers are charged with ensuring that facilities operate to support the business mission, while balancing the expectations of occupants and stake holder requirements. This essential function is typically viewed by the organization as a cost, and facility managers are competing with their organizations for investment dollars. In order to secure funding, facility managers must be able to not only speak the language of finance, but must also craft and present a compelling business case to win funding for investment in facilities. The success of the business case is just as much about the presentation of the data as it is about the subtleties of how the data is presented. This presentation will address crafting a business case that includes the essential hard skills elements of finance and data, but also the soft skills of messaging, anchors, and biases.

 

SPEAKER:

Laurie Gilmer,P.E., CFM, SFP, LEED AP, CxA   – Vice President and COO at Facility Engineering Associates

Laurie Gilmer is Vice President and COO at Facility Engineering Associates. Laurie is a published author, and co-authored IFMA’s second manual in the Sustainability “How-To-Guide” Series, EPA’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager.

BIM4FM: Convergence on the Horizon

Where are you with BIM? Perhaps you don’t currently have your facility data digitized but are well aware that as the world automates facilities you can’t be left behind. Where are things headed and how can you aim your building(s) to intersect with AI, Workplace Dashboards, etc. IFMA advocates the technological route and this program will ignite your courageous BIM within.

UCSF Health has delivered capital projects via Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) successfully over many projects – and has a solid history specifying that process within contract. But, what about the monstrous data output associated with these Building Information Models? If only 20 cents of our lifecycle dollar is spent on design and construction, should we not be driving the IPD BIM output to inform the operational 80 cents on the dollar that we spend over the life of the building? Sure we should!

Provided an opportunity to implement a new IBM Maximo Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) enterprise-wide, UCSF Health Facilities Management took a leap of faith and created a small internal team comprised of true career-track IT folks: couple of programmers, a solutions architect and a BIM/VDC architect all working under guidance from our collective operational perspective. Given this chance to specify a true “facilities-centric” BIM Execution Plan and Data Dictionary to be baked into a “best value” contract format – we jumped!

This then is the journey which has unfolded: a reaffirmation of the belief that project delivery BIM data can, and should be the source for daily operational value propositions. Driven from a purely facilities-centric lifecycle perspective, BIM4FM is evolving as the solution. Specifying project output to provide the foundational basis for successful operations is the holy grail, and a mission aimed at laying down project development and delivery silo’s one on top of the other to create that lifecycle continuum.

Please join in a discussion of what a tightly specified BIM output generated as part of the 175,000 square-foot, 7-story PCMB project delivery might look like. Having focused on the horizon and anticipated some sort of merging Autodesk Revit BIM360 output and IBM Maximo CMMS integration capabilities – here we are: only months from patient day one, and we are fully involved in the field verification and model validation of “everything Facilities”… Proving out a small portion of what we are dreaming to do before things actually exist in the field.

Top 3 key points/takeaways from the presentation:

  1. IPD BIM is extremely valuable and should be leveraged into operations as early as possible
  2. BIM4FM business case models spell out the justifications for integration
  3.  Innovation must be shared, educated and scaled for implementation across a variety of landscapes
