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



Bruce Mace is the Director of Facilities Management for the UCSF Health regional hospital system located in San Francisco, California. With a career in architecture, 2D/3D design and construction, turning the corner into healthcare operations thirteen years ago was a profound change. Unfolding that opportunity into a passion with a small team of creative, committed believers exposed the chasm between integrated project delivery BIM data output and powerful computerized maintenance management system potentials.



Jhoric De Guzman is the Director Operations and Regulatory for UCSF Health. He is responsible for implementation of operational management level decisions applied down through crafts, engineering and information technology staff as managed by UCSF Health Facilities Management. Determines objectives, directs programs, develops strategies and policies, manages human, financial, and physical resources, and functions with a high degree of autonomy. Proactively assesses risk to establish systems and procedures to protect organizational assets. Determines strategies for a program with organization-wide impact.

When he is not on the job he enjoys mountain biking in Northern Marin, hiking with Family, and indulging his love for seeing new places on two wheels.



Preethi Ravindra Kumar is the System Supervisor for business applications managed by UCSF Health Facilities Management and an accomplished IT Professional in EAM, ITSM and Maximo Implementation. Responsible for infrastructure, architecture, design, translation of business owner requirements to system requirements to include, integrations, implementation and handover accomplished by her “BAT Team”.

With over 11 years of experience, Preethi is very passionate about everything pertaining to asset and work order management, purchasing, service and change management and the new adventure into the BIM4FM world.
