Abstract: Building Information Modelling (BIM) has become an essential tool in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry. With the BCA BIM roadmap being rolled out in 2010, aiming to have 80% of the construction industry to use BIM by 2015, BIM will be available for all new buildings by then. Being information-rich, the use of BIM can be extended beyond the design and construction stage for facility management by leveraging facility-related information from the BIM. However, BIM for FM is still in its infancy stage with emphasis placed on project management. The complexity and difficulties increased with BIM implementation for existing facility. This research paper aimed to evaluate the implementation of BIM-based FM for existing facilities by employing National University of Singapore (NUS) as case study. It seeks to find out whether the realisation of BIM in NUS for the purpose of FM can have a significant impact on its operational efficiency. Survey was also conducted via questionnaire to find out the relationship between high level of BIM acceptance for FM and adoption of BIM-based FM in Singapore. Findings revealed that the current FM practices in NUS are largely paper-based and manual. Missing and difficulties in retrieving information were also the challenges faced. The application of BIM for FM in NUS was analysed based on the literature review, interviews and observations conducted. In addition, survey results revealed that there is a high level of acceptance for BIM in FM. However, it was also highlighted that increasing the level of acceptance alone is insufficient. Overcoming the barriers at the same time is necessary for BIM to be implemented in a useful and valuable manner. Recommendations were suggested to prepare NUS for a BIM environment in the near future, when BIM are available from new construction. Besides NUS, it can also be applied to other building types where integrated information management of old and new buildings documents are necessary to enhance operational efficiency.
