TÜV SÜD will attend the 2018 Expo Real in Munich under the banner of “Partner for Digitisation in the Real Estate Sector”. The focus of TÜV SÜD's presence at the trade show will be on services in the fields of building information modelling (BIM) and digital asset management, as well as transaction services for the real-estate industry. In the property management sector, TÜV SÜD Advimo GmbH once again won the Customers’ Choice award of this year’s prestigious Bell Report. (Hall C1, Stand 320).
BIM – End-to-end data management from planning phase to operation
Building information modelling (BIM) is an integrated model-based work method used for generating and managing information in building projects. In addition, the aim for the future is for BIM data to be used for efficient facility management. “Provided an appropriate level of standardisation is observed, BIM data can form the basis of end-to-end data management that extends from the planning and construction phases to real-estate operation”, says Tobias Schmidt, Head of Global BIM Center of Competence at TÜV SÜD. Services provided by TÜV SÜD in this field include BIM coordination among technical planners and their sub-models and the design, construction and coordination of MEP models. In the operating phase, the objective is for the BIM model to serve as a complete, standardised and reliable database for computer-aided facility management (CAFM). A CAFM system processes all building data which are important for the building's operation, thereby significantly facilitating the management of large-scale properties or facilities.
Digital asset management and TÜV SÜD’s Objektbrief platform
Digital asset management is an essential requirement for cost-effective long-term operation of buildings. During system integration, crucial roles are played by aspects including availability, functionality and usability, individual operating requirements, and upgrading or extension of MEP systems. TÜV SÜD’s Objektbrief platform acts as an infrastructure basis for digital MEP operation. The platform also offers data interfaces to commercial building automation systems to support anticipatory maintenance schemes.
Transaction services cut transaction risks
In recent years the potential risks involved in property transactions have increased for all market stakeholders. TÜV SÜD’s transaction services, ranging from ‘classic’ due diligence to property valuations and sustainability certification, can reduce transaction risks and protect investments over the long term. The importance of sustainability aspects should not be underestimated.
