Frequently Asked Questions

COBie data is .the essential O&M information about built assets that is structured to facilitate transfer to Computer Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) systems. COBie stands for Construction (to) Operations Building Information Exchange.

Who are the target customers for COBie Data Updater?

Typically, main contractors and Facilities Managers who are required to collate comprehensive asset information (e.g. manufacturers, product codes, serial numbers, warranty details, etc.) from their entire supply chain. COBie Data Updater is an easy-to-use mobile app that leverages BIM to organise and update room-by-room asset information from every supplier/subcontractor.

When should I use COBie Data Updater?

For your supply chain, the optimal time for rolling out COBie Data Updater is at the beginning of the commissioning process. The user interface makes it easy to call up a list of every piece of equipment and fixture in a particular room or in a specific work package. The supplier can then update this information with the correct manufacturer, installation date, product code, serial number and warranty details. Once updated, you can download all the data in Excel format. BIM4U provides services and support to validate the asset data and to import the data into CAFM (Computer Aided Facilities Management) systems, like Maximo, Planon and Archibus FM

What is the professional expertise of BIM4U's team?

Collectively, BIM4U staff have been vetted and qualified by Autodesk, the global leader in BIM software. They have over thirty years experience in delivering successful built environment projects via BIM. What differentiates BIM4U is that they have developed a uniquely repeatable and scalable tools and processes for transferring asset data from construction to operations, but without the prohibitive costs associated with other software vendors.

Why aren't the major BIM and FM software vendors adopting BIM4U's approach?

The comparative size of major vendors (annual turnover, number of employees) means that they have little interest in creating apps that command a fraction of the price of their flagship products. Also, they have a vested interest in sustaining the proprietary technologies that have made them wealthy. In contrast, BIM4U's COBie Data Updater is true market disruption which is aimed at the lower tiers of construction supply chains. Typically, they are small firms that have no interest in or budget for investing heavily in construction tech.
