From BIM to CIM
Campus Information ModelingWhat is a Smart Campus model?
A CIM or Campus Information Model is a fully-integrated, semantically-enabled, 3D digital model of a campus that gives users unprecedented access to building and project data within and beyond their properties. CIMs are file format-agnostic and capture any type of asset, project, or urban data—static and dynamic, spatial (3D/BIM/IoT) and non-spatial—from buildings (BMS/EMS/FM), to roads and public spaces (Open Data), to smart streetlights (sensors), to people (Social Media).
Smart Campus (CIM) models are used by architects, engineers, construction logistics professionals, urban designers, building owners, real estate agents, and property managers during the design, construction, marketing, and operations and maintenance phases of building and campus ownership.
With Smart Campus, users are able to:
Aggregate Building Asset and Operational Data
Spatial (BIM, IOT) and non-spatial (energy, security, facilities)—from existing distributed IT architectures, campus/portfolio-wide, quickly and easily.
At an enterprise / portfolio / building level for technical and non-technical stakeholders in a single interface.
Run repeatable complex queries to quickly find any piece of information portfolio-wide in a few clicks.
Develop and implement custom analytics and dashboards leveraging contextual project and site data (assess ROI, optimize site selection, mitigate investment risk, streamline building management, create better tenant and resident community experience)
Data for Everyone
Develop and deploy custom tenant and resident-facing Smart Campus mobile solutions.
... all in real time.
The Challenge for Building Owners:
Lots of Data, and Little Actionable Intelligence
Fundamentally existing CRE tools are not designed to re-use project information
Our drag and drop converter tool InstaBIM allows users to drag and drop their 3D BIM\CAD\GIS models straight off the desktop seamlessly into rich 5D Smart City models to optimize design, planning and building operational functions.
5D Smart City™
5D Smart City models are hyper-connected to hundreds of dynamic data sources—public Open Data, IoT\sensor data, project data, CAFM data and many more.
Users leverage Warp, our data normalization tool, to populate our models with the most complex data sets.
The path to data and analytics is through a Wolfram Alpha-like simple Q&A interface, Asq, allows users to find and analyze almost any piece of spatial or non-spatial information by keying in just a few words.
Our on-line palette of massing and analytics tools complements InstaBIM and Warp for rapid in-situ prototyping studies and contextual analysis of any project. Our team of Urban Data Scientists provides custom predictive analytics modeling tools to customers as an additional service.
And Charrette, our next-gen take on project collaboration tool, allows users to share their work with anyone within (and without) the organization instantaneously.
