I would like to find out more about as-built BIM and how it relates to certain markets. Can you shed some light on the following, or provide some personal experiences with as-built BIM? 1. Who is requesting as-built BIMs (i.e. Architects, Interior Designers, Facilities Managers, etc.)? 2. What are they expecting as a deliverable (i.e. Walls, Doors, Windows, Slabs, Structure, MEP, etc.)? 3. What kind of detail is expected (i.e. Materials, Finishes, etc.)? 4. What level of accuracy is acceptable and for what types of elements (i.e. To the nearest 1", 1/2", 1/4", cm, mm, etc.)? 5. Why are they requesting as-built BIM (i.e. Required by Client, Energy analysis, LEED, etc.)? 6. What types of collection methods have been used to obtain the data (i.e. Distos, LIDAR, Terrestrial Scanners, etc.)? 7. What companies provide as-built BIM services and what are they charging? Thanks for any input!

"As Built" in short, is a pain in the neck! Smile but beside that, it's really up to the client and their requirnments. people want to make sure that what they paid for was actually built, but more than that, As Built is needed for green star ratings as well, because it's all good to get 6 stars on your intended design it's another when you come to the finished building performance.

when you talk about FM (Facility Management) it is important to have a set of documents that actually show the current/finish state of the building.

to what extent do you do As Built? that really comes down to yur clients needs, I would think walls, doors, windows and ceilings as the base. remember that someone will have to go around and measure the building in order to document.

It's a good idea but very hard to produce...
