Purpose – The paper seeks to investigate perceptions from a facilities management perspective on the integration of facilities management within a buildings lifecycle and its evolution as a profession in light of the government mandate regarding the use of BIM. Design/methodology/approach – The research was undertaken through a comprehensive literature review from desktop study of various published literatures Findings – The research found that facilities management is generally not well integrated within a buildings lifecycle. BIM has the potential to showcase the value of the FM to the wider built environment however from a collaboration perspective, it is not foundational. If the FM is to truly be integrated in a buildings lifecycle then FMs must engage with BIM from a sociological angle, embracing the collaborative principles of Latham and Egan and as a part of integrated teams in order to ensure that COBie is adequately utilized. This will ensure facilities that are designed with operability in mind which will lead to better management post completion. Research limitations/implications – This study was led to focusing solely on the facilities managers perspectives. At present there were very limited literature materials on the role of FM within BIM agenda as FM is always be reckoned as a post-handover function within property life cycle. Originality/value – The paper argues that FM has serious potential for growth once wider built environment realises the value that FM can bring to building lifecycle. However, first steps are the stumbling block which may hold FM back. FMs are simply not engaging enough with BIM. The paper clearly set how BIM represents the potential to make facilities management user friendly, garner more consideration from other professionals and have an input within design thus significantly allow FM to fit and involved throughout the lifecycle of a building Keywords Building Information Modelling, BIM, Facilities Management, Life Cycle Costing.
