ABSTRACT: Facility Management, as well as maintenance operations, suffers from the block in the operational level that avoid the leap to a strategic and integrated dimension expected to reduce risks and economic losses occurring after changing situations. Building Information Modelling seems to be an efficient system to introduce strategic FM, involve governments and their regulations inside public procurements and private construction processes. Is it possible the integration of Facility Management in BIM in Italy, Spain and Germany? If yes, how to ensure high levels of communication between AEC actors, manufacturers, users and Authorities?
The answers converge into the development of IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) Standard by buildingSMART International in compliance with European and national regulations in the three countries involved in this research.
