BIM & FM Surveillance in Action
Singapore has always taken a proactive approach to embracing and adopting new technology. Several years ago, an institute called NCS was formed to study opportunities to leverage data for use by the nation’s government and industry. Their efforts fit right in with what IBM is doing in the “Smart Cities” space.
They invited some of my colleagues over for a tour to show some of the neat things they are working on which may be of interest to us and other retail developers. As part of the tour, they took us into the control room for the building to illustrate some of the capabilities they were talking about.
But this is where it got “BIM-my”. They had taken a 3D model of the building and could overlay camera feeds from different rooms into the virtual world.
It was interesting. Maybe not the highest and best use of BIM in building operations that gets touted at conferences, but I thought it was neat to see models integrated in practical use.
