Maintaining seamless, error-free, accurate and automated hand-over of building information is one of the most oppressive obstacles to a collaborated building design and delivery practice and a life-cycle-oriented construction. Contemporary building data technologies such as Building Information Modelling (BIM) offer a handful of possibilities towards this end. Nonetheless, utilization of the full capacity of BIM demands a neutral and standardized approach often termed as open BIM. This may translate to implementation of buildingSMART’s standard building data model, IFC, for exchange of data among different sectors throughout building industry. This study is a basic research on the status quo and potentials for developing and maintaining an integrated approach toward data management within AEC/FM organizations. Automated, sustained and error-free transfer of building information and analytical capabilities from AEC-centric BIM tools to facility managers, in specific, is a cutting-edge area which demands technical and organizational solutions. Document- and stage-based thinking and silo mentalities among AEC firms and legislative inertia are some major hindrances against this goal. A complete shift from as-designed and as-built documents and models to their as-commissioned, as-operated and as-maintained counterparts, however, entails development of a building information infrastructure that persistently enable versioning, traceability and visibility of data originated from a multitude of resources. In order for a BIM repository to serve this need, it should fulfil certain requirements and possess specific functionalities.
