  • Critically analyse the role of BIM for building and asset operation and maintenance 
  • Assess BIM Facilities Management (FM) integration
  • Apply BIM for system control 
  • Apply BIM for space tracking 
  • Use BIM for asset management 
  • Apply BIM for maintenance management 
  • Apply BIM for existing conditions modelling
  • Produce condition documentation
  • Work as part of a team
