About this event

Each year, England's NHS spends a significant amount of money to maintain its estates. In 2015/16, maintenance costs were £8.3 billion, with £2 million specifically spent on Hard Facilities management costs of estates. In addition, the NHS has a continuing burden of backlog maintenance (circa £5 billion as of 2015/16).

Due to financial pressure and this large level of backlog maintenance, most NHS hospitals are less capable to run a planned maintenance strategy for their estates. Furthermore, there is a lack of quantifiable evidence to demonstrate the relationship between asset management, investment and overall organisational performance improvements. Therefore, many organisations consider asset management as a cost burden.

The presentation will touch on how Building Information Modelling (BIM) can benefit the NHS by demonstrating the links between built asset maintenance spend and added value to the organisational performance, which can then help NHS estates make better-informed investment decisions on their built assets.

The aim of the event is to present how the construction paradigm of Building Information Modelling (BIM) could support decisions in businesses. Data, Information, Knowledge, Wisdom (DIKW) will be presented by demonstrating what data could be used from a digital model to inform new business model. A case study will be showing the value of BIM to support facilities management of a hospital in Hertfordshire to support decisions.

Please note this is a change from the previously advertised date.
