BIMobject AB, in partnership with Onuma, Inc., to host SEPS2BIM Models for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs

Today, BIMobject AB announces a new building information model (BIM) technology initiative, referred to as SEPS2BIM, that significantly upgrades and improves facilities' planning and design process for the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. The Space and Equipment Planning System to BIM (SEPS2BIM) process takes an owner's well-organized, structured data and builds automatically 3D objects of spaces and equipment.

BIMobject, has in collaboration with Onuma, Inc., a Pasadena, CA based architectural and technology firm, and pioneer of BIM - announced that the BIM templates and objects created for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs will be hosted on the BIMobject® Cloud.

For the past year, Onuma, Inc. has worked closely with Veterans Affairs, as well as The National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) on the SEPS2BIM project in order to create brand agnostic BIM models to be used in the design, construction and maintenance of Veterans' hospitals and other healthcare facilities, globally.    

With the Veterans Administration making their facility requirements data accessible - SEPS2BIM is an unprecedented milestone for facility planning that impacts the bottom line of planning, design, construction and facility operations. SEPS2BIM provides new services to owners and enables consultants and software applications to link facility requirement data to apps. 

"BIMobject and Onuma, Inc. are pleased to be selected from hundreds of BIM industry enthusiasts to introduce the Dept. of Veterans Affairs to the latest in BIM technology, as they strive to improve upon the design, construction and management of their healthcare and other related facilities," said Doug Bevill, president BIMobject Inc.

On March 22, 2016, The Federal Real Property Association will present an Asset Leadership Impact Award for Federal Agency Collaboration to the collaborators of the SEPS2BIM Initiative in Washington, DC. 

A brand new product category is now available on the BIMobject Cloud, called requirement objects. It is a new development in our business model where we will be able to handle BIM objects in this part of the BIM process as well. Our customers will be building owners, developers or an organisation; for example, development organizations of hospitals for regions in one country. 

There are now more than 900 requirement objects published on the BIMobject Cloud available to download. http://bimobject.com/en-us/product/?manufacturer=seps2bim
