EcoDomus PM and FM Solutions Features

EcoDomus PM

EcoDomus PM (“Project Management”) is a versatile software solution dedicated to enabling the usage of Building Information Models (BIM) and Lean processes for new construction or renovation of existing buildings. EcoDomus PM helps collect and clean BIM data and supports project data management.

Manage Data Online

EcoDomus utilizes the latest Web 2.0 techniques to provide a collaborative environment where all participants can contribute to successful project performance from anywhere in the world via an online browser.

Benefits of BIM for Project Management

  • The information is collected once, and updated as changes happen allowing for turnover of accurate as-built data
  • Provides better information needed for building commissioning before the turnover
  • Allows for automated data Quality Control
  • Asset Documentation is stored in an integrated online database, allowing for easy access, editing, and handover of data
  • Data visualization helps in project decision making

EcoDomus FM

EcoDomus FM (“Facilities Management”) is a software application that provides for real-time integration of BIM with Building Automation Systems from Siemens, Honeywell, Johnson Controls, or others, and with FM software like IBM Maximo, FSI, Tririga, AssetWorks AiM, Accruent FAMIS, Archibus, Anacle CMMS, and others.

EcoDomus FM utilizes a 3D interface enabling interactive virtual preventive maintenance inspections, and quicker response to service requests.

Benefits of Using BIM for Facilities Management

Some of the major benefits to implementing BIM for Facilities Management include:

  • Facility managers are trained to use equipment in 3D before they see it “live”
  • Time and effort of finding related documents and information to perform work orders after completion of building is significantly reduced which will lead to greater overall cost saving
  • Response time is reduced during an Emergency Service Request improving Risk Management
  • Visualization of building systems allows for faster and more accurate tag-out/lock-out procedures
  • Integration with Building Automation Systems allowing greater visibility into energy efficiency by comparing “as built” energy simulation data vs. “as operated” data received from BAS
  • Visual inventory can be performed allowing greater insight into the location and condition of assets

Past Performance

  1. First BIM for FM Project in US – EcoDomus integrated BIM with FM software (FAMIS) and Building Automation System (Honeywell EBI) for the University of Southern California via EcoDomus FM software. This project was highlighted in the “Journal of BIM” (twice), Autodesk Case Study (2010), and various books (IFMA’s “BIM for Facility Managers”) and articles.
  2. First COBie Project in the World – Igor Starkov, co-founder of EcoDomus, provided and managed the software development of EcoDomus PM (formerly known as Tokmo) used to collect and validate BIM/COBie data for the Texas A&M Health Science Center Project, winning EcoDomus a CETI award from FIATECH (the leading construction technology association) for “Lifecycle Data Management and Information Integration”.
  3. First Large BIM Project in US – Mitch Boryslawski, co-founder of EcoDomus, served as the Design and Construction coordinator on behalf of Lucasfilm Ltd. for the $350M, 850,000 sf Letterman Digital Arts Center project in San Francisco, completed in 2005. Mitch led the BIM implementation of the project, ground breaking at the time, which started as visualization, then progressed to coordination, and finally to a data rich model as a BIM deliverable.
  4. First FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) Lifecycle BIM Project. EcoDomus worked with Lockheed Martin on the proof-of-concept BIM project for the FAA. The existing Air Force base facilities were laser scanned, and modeled to BIM (Autodesk Revit and Bentley AECOsim), and the resulting BIM integrated with CAFM (ARCHIBUS), CMMS (TMA Systems), Building Automation System (Schneider Electric), EDMS (ProjectWise) and GIS (ESRI) using EcoDomus FM software.
  5. NASA BIM Handover Project – EcoDomus developed the BIM-to-FM Handover Implementation Guide for the NASA Langley Research Center and demonstrated integration of BIM with CMMS (IBM Maximo). EcoDomus is working on the second NASA project with Turner Construction, the largest General Contractor in the US.
  6. BIM to FM for Disney – EcoDomus developed the BIM-to-FM Handover Implementation Guide for Walt Disney Imagineering, and implemented the workflow at Disneyworld Orlando (Magic Kingdom).
  7. First GSA (U.S. General Services Administration) BIM Lifecycle Energy Performance Assessment Project – EcoDomus helped GSA develop best practices to track energy performance from design through operations by integrating BIM and Smart Building technologies using EcoDomus PM / FM software suite. The results of the project provide GSA with a way to assess sustainability and energy performance strategies and their overall impact, providing feedback on best practices for energy modeling during design. GSA’s facility managers also use EcoDomus Mobile application on iPad to track work orders and view BIMs.
  8. Kaiser Permanente’s Strategic BIM Roadmap – EcoDomus developed the Strategic BIM Roadmap for Kaiser Permanente, one of the largest healthcare organizations in US. The roadmap covers all areas of BIM-related information management: from early design through construction and handover to facilities management. The BIM Roadmap’s approach is implemented at Kaiser Oakland Medical Center – KP’s template hospital.
  9. GSA BIM for FM Guide – Igor Starkov contributed to the development of the GSA’s plan to leverage BIM technology and processes for the lifecycle of their facilities. Three out of five of the featured case studies about BIM and COBie were collaborations with EcoDomus.
  10. BIM for Airports – EcoDomus implements BIM for FM solution at Medina Airport in Saudi Arabia, working with TAV, the leading construction and services firm specializing in airports lifecycle operations. EcoDomus helped Massport (Boston Airport) in developing its BIM Guidelines and testing BIM workflows.
  11. BIM Guidelines for the State of Massachusetts (DCAMM), State of Alberta (Alberta Infrastructure), USAA, Architect of the Capitol (US House/Senate) – EcoDomus helped develop BIM guidelines for several large facility owners.
  12. First COBie for sport arenas project in the world – Daytona International Speedway is the home of “The Great American Race” – the DAYTONA 500 – the enormous 480-acre motorsports complex boasts the most diverse schedule of racing on the globe. The Daytona Rising project is using EcoDomus Mobile and EcoDomus PM to collect information, track the status of the equipment installation in the field, and later deliver the handover documentation to the facility owner.
