      Texas A&M Health Science Center (TAM HSC) has been featured in a case study in the upcoming BIM Handbook: A Guide to Building Information Modeling for Owners, Managers, Designers, Engineers and Contractors, 2nd Edition. The BIM Handbook offers design, construction and facility management professionals with useful insights into the organizational, technological and commercial influence of Building Information Modeling (BIM) on organizations. The case study, entitled “Texas A&M Health Science Center: A case study of BIM and COBie for facility management,” examines the role of BIM and the Construction Operations Building Information Exchange (COBie) in the design, construction and operation of a large research facility. This case study vividly illustrates how an organization has embraced the ‘new normal’ in facilities management,” said Ken Slaughter, Senior Vice President, AssetWorks. “To drive greater efficiency and productivity, every milestone of the facilities and real estate life cycle—from design and construction to operations and maintenance to building decommissioning—must be centrally and rigorously managed. It’s clear that Texas A&M Health Science Center gets that, and we’re proud to have been a part of their success.” The BIM Handbook (ISBN: 978-0-470-54137-1) is published by Wiley Publications and is available for purchase at: http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-0470541377.html.
