The destiny of BIM is life-cycle facility management. When this will happen is anyone’s guess.
In the interim, BIMers and FMers can learn a lot from JOC – Job Order Contracting. JOC is arguably the best construction project delivery method for facility renovation, repair, and sustainability.
It is efficient (projects take far less time to scope, bid, and start), performance-based (contractors that deliver quality on time and on budge are rewarded with additional work), collaborative (long term, open relationships are the norm), and transparent (reference cost databases and/or custom cost guides are used along with associated standardized templates, reporting methods, etc.)
JOC shares the benefits of IPD (integrated project delivery) however, has a proven 25 years track record of success.
In a time when the economy and global warming force a new focus upon existing buildings and efficiency…. JOC can delivery today.
For these reasons that JOC adoption is rapidly accelerating in government, institution, and private sectors. .. and why BIM can learn from JOC.
