Structured abstract Purpose -This paper provides a conceptual framework for an integrated asset management strategy making use of available facility environmental assessment methods and tools and proposes areas of commonality between these and the matured as-built Building Information Model (BIM), that becomes the Asset Information Model (AIM). This framework considers emerging requirements for the capture of Building Performance Attribute Data (BPAD), and describes how these can be managed in
more &raquo; ... rder to assist with effective post-construction building performance evaluation. Design/methodology/approach -A review of the current process relevant to the development of as-built BIMs and AIMs was undertaken which included a discussion of BIM standards and of the COBie process. This review combined with data provided by industry practitioners, led to the identification of the requirement of BPADs which can be used within existing green building tools, such as BREEAM In-Use, LEED and integrated with COBIE and FM /Asset management methods. In turn these methodologies were used to identify possible synergies and areas of integration in AIM-enabled environments. Findings -Recognising the cyclical nature of asset management and BIM, a conceptual model was generated. It was found that BPADs could be aggregated within an AIM model which could influence the delivery of effective facilities and asset management. The model considers the use of existing Building Management Systems (BMS) and Computer Aided Facility Management Systems (CAFMs) and identifies issues associated with the overall sustainability strategy. Originality value -A conceptual framework is generated that proposes the use of effective information management and aggregation of building performance attribute data within an Asset Information Model.
