Autodesk released a new app, Building Ops, which it describes will “dramatically improve the handover experience” by compiling operations data during the BIM-based design and construction phases of a project. 

The app’s designers say that the Autodesk Building Ops app enables owners to begin operations on the first day with a turnkey maintenance and asset management solution. It also helps contractors better service warranty requests while reducing expenses from unmaintained equipment.

“New and retrofit building projects designed within a BIM workflow contain a huge amount of valuable information that can be used in building operations and asset maintenance,” said Jim Lynch, Vice President, Building and Collaboration Product Line Group, Autodesk, in a statement. “Autodesk Building Ops offers a new way to extend the value of BIM throughout the entire building lifecycle—from design and construction, through operations and maintenance. Building Ops gives building owners and the general contractors who serve them an easy way to use BIM data to improve operations workflows and create better managed facilities.”
