Schiphol to organize a BIM for Facility Management program at GEO|Design+BIM 2018

Amsterdam: GEO| Design+BIM, a platform that highlights the use of geospatial data analytics and Building Information Modelling (BIM) in asset spatial design, construction, and operation and maintenance, is pleased to announce Schiphol as a Content Partner. The event is scheduled to take place from 1-2 November 2018, in Amsterdam.

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is the third largest European airport and eleventh busiest in the world, handling more than 68 million passengers a year. With a complex asset management portfolio and an intensive capital development program, Schiphol is committed to utilizing BIM to keep its 80,000 individual assets in perfect shape for a smarter, smoother and more efficient passenger experience.

“At Schiphol, we have realized that the geospatial information or the building information cannot provide the ultimate solutions for our information needs on their own. Therefore, we are seeking for opportunities by combining the strengths of both systems, in order to make the best decisions,” says Alexander Worp, Strategic Advisor BIM. “At GEO|Design+BIM, we will talk about BIM at Schiphol, as a collaborative digital system, where multiple parties work together and share their information with common standards, processes and roles.”

“The value of BIM has been realized mostly in the design and construction phase. However, it is the long term operation of the finished asset that is most important and where the greatest benefits can be achieved. We’re ecstatic to co-host the BIM for Facility Management program at GEO|Design+BIM with Schiphol. Success stories from Schiphol will serve as an inspiration to the facility management community at the conference,” adds Anamika Das, Vice President, Outreach and Business Development at Geospatial Media and Communications, the conference organizer.

About GEO|Design+BIM
GEO|Design+BIM is an exclusive event in Europe, highlighting and initiating discussions related to the use of geospatial data analytics and BIM in asset spatial design, construction, operation and maintenance. The event is a combination of two innovative platforms: GeoDesign Summit Europe and GeoBIM Europe, which were organized separately since 2013. Understanding the relevance and importance of bringing the geospatial analytics, spatial planning, architecture, engineering, construction and operation/maintenance professionals together on one platform, a combined effort was initiated in 2017, giving birth to this exciting integrated event.
