SAN FRANCISCO, CA – EcoDomus was selected to provide software and services for the industry leading “Lifecycle BIM” project.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has embarked upon a 15-year facility modernization program at its Langley Research Center (LaRC) in Hampton, Virginia. The General Services Administration (GSA) and NASA are jointly managing the implementation of this endeavor, known as New Town. The program scope includes the design and construction of six new buildings and renovation of two existing buildings.
The Scope Of Work for includes a requirement to provide all as-built product data, warranty information, maintenance schedules and operations data for the building equipment inventory within the BIM Model deliverables.
EcoDomus software tools have proven that facility data can be automatically imported and exported to and from Computerized Maintenance Management Systems. The cost and time savings for a highly coordinated and efficient transfer of building data through the construction phase and into the building operations phase is substantial for NASA. Further, the cost and time savings of keeping Record BIM Models current using automated tools throughout building operations is also of significant value for NASA.
The objective of the task order awarded to EcoDomus is to prove that an integration between the BIM models and NASA’s IBM Maximo CMMS is possible and valuable. EcoDomus will provide an implementation plan and perform the implementation according to the plan.
