Abstract: Purpose: The research establishes a Conceptual Process Model (CPM) as shown in Figure 1 which shows how Facility Management (FM) and asset management know-how, 3D laser scanning and Building Information Modelling (BIM) can be combined with virtual design and simulation techniques to help managers make better decisions about feasibility options to add value and optimize existing buildings performance and quality. Design methodology and approach: Mixed methods were used including a review of BIM literature and industry best practice. Seven semi-structured interviews were held with stakeholders from different stages in the BIM process. The initial CPM was subsequently refined during the research project using feedback from the interviews. The 3D laser scanning element of the CPM was tested using two real life university buildings and the findings triangulated with a feedback mechanism to further improve the model. Originality and findings: The findings establish a model which can be used by key stakeholders as a guide when considering the integration of FM and asset management know-how, with 3D scanning in the creation of a BIM model for existing buildings, which constitute approximately 98% of the building stock. The focus is on using existing know-how with the BIM process and simulation techniques to identify and simulate the best building improvement feasibility options prior to a decision to proceed. The CPM meets the need to develop a workflow with a focus on digitalisation of the existing built environment and creation of appropriate BIM model(s). The created models can then be used for simulation purposes looking at cost benefit optimisation, energy efficiency etc. as well as creating virtual walk through models that can be viewed by end users and Facility Managers (FMs) to improve workplace environments and FM and asset management operation.
