The current state of data flow between the models and tools utilized for the analysis, design, construction, and operations of data centers ranges from abysmal to nonexistent. BIM, CFD, and energy models require much of the same data, yet each is generally built in silos. That same data and geometry could be used for facility asset management and building operations, but rarely is without manual data entry. Manually extracting data from building operations tools for Measurement & Verification (M&V) and model calibration of CFD and energy models is equally painful, time consuming, and error prone. Not for long. Significant progress has been made with the development of coordinated models and the automation of the flow of data between the tools used by building professionals for data centers. The results from 2 pilot projects; Rahi System’s MiniDC Coordinated Models, along with a sample aisle containment study will be used to demonstrate the following: • Use of Matterport’s 3D Camera and services to generate geometrically accurate as-built BIM models. • The development of a library of Revit (BIM) families and project templates that includes embedded eSpecs and other critical facility asset data for the IT, electrical, and mechanical systems and equipment • The process for extracting data and geometry from Revit models into iTRACS DCIM for building operations and controls • The coordination of the flow of data from Revit and iTRACS to Romonet’s energy analysis tools for energy, water, and financial calculations and visualizations • The coordination of a similar flow of data from Revit, iTRACS, and Romonet to Future Facilities 6Sigma DCX for CFD analysis. • The visualization of facility asset management, energy analysis, and operational performance data on BIM models in VR using the Oculus Rift and Revizto.
