dc.description.abstractPurpose: To develop a prototype Swiss Construction Operations Building Information Exchange (COBie) suitable for information exchange between planners, construction and facility managers (FMs) in Switzerland. To support this aim three questions were investigated: 1) what information relating to assets/buildings do users need most? 2) when does, information need to be exchanged during the planning and construction process? and 3) how can facility management (FM) benefit from a Swiss-COBie? Design/methodology/approach: Triangulation including; review of literature, Building Information Modelling (BIM) standards and industry best-practice in Switzerland, an analysis of data from three different company’s Computer Aided Facility Management (CAFM) systems to establish the most common/important data and semi-structured interviews with the responsible FMs. Findings: BIM for constructing new buildings is developing fast in Switzerland. However, there is a lack of established Swiss BIM standards and FMs have little or no BIM experience. Analysis of CAFM data highlighted essential COBie schema data fields and how existing COBie schema could be adapted to Swiss construction standards. FMs will benefit from improved handover of asset information from construction to operation helping to prevent long-term issues during the operational phase. Practical implications: A Swiss-COBie will help FMs transfer relevant BIM data localised to the Swiss market for transfer into their CAFM systems. Originality/value: This paper represents a first step in establishing a system for digital information exchange in Switzerland that could be trialled in practice.de_CH
