Using as-built BIM models, project teams can record information relating to a facility’s main architectural, structural, and MEP elements by information from BIM models used throughout the project. Creating an as-built model (from the design, construction, 4D coordination models, and subcontractor fabrication models) provides a valuable resource for owners and facility managers for linking operations, maintenance, and asset data for effectively operating the facility.

The model can serve as a live document that contains an accurate snapshot of the completed space, these can include links to all relevant facility information (for example, serial codes, warranties, and the operation and maintenance history of all the components within the building.)
