BIMobject AB, in collaboration with Onuma, Inc., to make SEPS2BIM objects used by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense, Defense Health Agency available on bimobject.com with enhanced capabilities
BIMobject AB announces the support of 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 (VA) and the Department of Defense, Defense Health Agency (DHA). 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 objects initially created for VA and DHA will be made available on the BIMobject® Cloud with extended capabilities.
For the past few years, Onuma, Inc. has worked closely with VA and DHA, on a series of National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) projects that resulted in SEPS2BIM that created brand agnostic BIM objects, templates and real time open data used in the design and construction of VA and DHA healthcare facilities, globally.
With the VA and DHA making their facility requirements data accessible - SEPS2BIM reached 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 directly to apps.
"BIMobject and Onuma, Inc. are pleased to utilize the VA and DHA provided SEPS2BIM open data services and extend this functionality on bimobject.com to BIM users that support VA and DHA projects, as they work on the design, construction and management of healthcare and other related facilities," said Doug Bevill, president BIMobject Inc.
March 22, 2016, The Federal Real Property Association presented in Washington, DC how the SEPS2BIM initiative was awarded an Asset Leadership Impact Award to VA, DHA and NIBS for Federal Agency Collaboration and opening up the SEPS objects, templates and data to the industry.
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 organization; 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
