BIM Forum October 2015


4/22/2015 – Session: Computable Closeout – Implementing Digital Sustainability for Built Assets on a $6Bn Bond Program
Sean Olcott, Gafcon & Troy Barbu, BuildLACCD

The LACCD Bond Program is transforming the nation’s largest Community College District. By completion the Bond will have built or modernized nearly 10M square feet of facilities across nine Los Angeles Colleges.

This session will describe the Program’s strategy for efficiently transitioning a large volume of project data into the maintenance lifecycle. It will also share how this approach will enable the District to improve building performance, staff decision making, and reduce operating costs long after the Bond is complete.

Sean Olcott has been at the leading edge of industry innovation for the last decade, working for start-ups specializing in BIM, cloud computing, and Facilities Management technology solutions. He has helped organizations such as Kaiser Permanente, the University of Southern California, and Starbucks find better ways to execute capital projects and manage the facility lifecycle using new tools and processes. Sean’s job at Gafcon, an ENR Top 50 PM/CM firm, is to leverage BIM and other emerging technologies to add value for the project stakeholder with the most at stake: the owner.

Troy Barbu has over 14 years’ of BIM experience, and has managed all things BIM – from project procurement to project completion to building facilities operations. Troy’s focus as of late has been the organization and coordination of M&O Asset data – using COBie – within Revit Models. Beginning with the end in mind, Troy has been directing Design and Construction teams through the process of creating models which can better benefit Facilities’ groups during building operations.
