“Experiences, current project and address the potential use of BIM in the area of operations and workflow for healthcare facilities”
Walter Jones, Senior Vice President, Facilities Planning and Development, Parkland Health and Hospital System, USA
Parkland is a public health and hospital system and currently about 75% complete on the New Parkland Hospital which is the largest healthcare project under construction in the US at this time. Parkland used BIM in its typical 3D capability, but also expanded it for some extremely detailed modeling of some of the unusual structural design elements on project. Additionally, Parkland used BIM in its 4D (time), and 5D (cost) capabilities as well. Parkland is currently exploring 6D BIM capabilities (BIM to facilities management) for operational efficiency.

BIM has been previously recognised and adopted as a tool in building construction industries but in recent months, BIM is now pushing the technology envelope further in improving design and construction of building structures, civil construction, road and highway projects, underground construction as well as heavy industries such as coal mining projects, tunneling and foundations. The concept of BIM allows a more holistic approach and enables geometry, geographic information as well as spatial relationships, quantities and properties of infrastructure components to be considered simultaneously. The result is a faster design process making it easier to assess feasibility and provide detailed 3D model information downstream into construction. As such, it becomes imminent to take a closer look at extending BIM principles to critical mega projects and heavy industries to enhance exploration of alternatives and better solution as well as improved collaboration, higher quality and significant cost savings during planning process, construction and commissioning by performing a BIM simulation.
