In this area, Urban360â€™s approach consists on creating a BIM model and through this to develop a database of the buildingâ€™s information for maintenance purposes.
The BIM model will work as a logical and consistent source of all information associated to the building, becoming a detailed and shared resource, which is maintained and updated (due to necessity of changes, additions or reformulations of use) till the end of buildingâ€™s lifetime.
Through an existing partnership between Urban360 and ENGworks (www.engworks.com), it is proposed, in order to enhance a Facility Management (6D) service of high efficiency, the implementation of the YouBIM product (for more information click here), developed by ENGworks and commercialized in Portugal by Urban360.
YouBIM is a 'Software as a Service' (SaaS â€“ Software as a Service), cloud-based solution which sought to extend the value of BIM throughout the buildingÂ´s lifecycle, by integrating information and making it instantly available in the form of data-rich online Models. YouBIM also gives owners an integrated database and instant access to facility information through an easy-to-navigate web-based 3D/BIM interface. In other words, YouBIM is an online 6D application, being 6D an acronym for Facility Management.
