BiLT NA Recommended Session: COBie or Not to Be?

Spehar 3-1


What really is COBie, how is it being used and what does it mean to deliver it? More importantly, how much will it cost me? These are just some of the questions teams are asking as more and more building owners are starting to adopt BIM standards and require data deliverables at handover.

Increased pressure is put on design and construction teams to manage data deliverables, many times in a COBie format. In this session we will address the who's, what's, why's and how's around capturing, managing and ultimately delivering COBie. We'll explain the importance of understanding the building owner?s needs for capturing data to ensure teams efficiently collaborate to meet requirements with minimal waste and rework. We'll then look at an example of using dRofus to manage the COBie data in a collaborative platform and how it can be used to provide a true COBie-compliant BIM deliverable - not just a COBie spreadsheet.

When: 20 July 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:15pm
