Broaddus & Associates' technology services group aided Texas State University in collecting and importing facilities management data into their system just two days after turning over a campus dining hall.
Originally built in the 1970s, the facility is consistently the busiest dining location on campus, serving 500,000 meals to students annually. The University recently went through the process of renovating Jones Dining Hall with the team of Pfluger Architects and Vaughn Construction.
Broaddus & Associates acted as the Transition to Operations (T2O) Manager, shepherding the Building Information Management (BIM) & T2O process for Texas State and ensuring successful deliverables. Our tasks included managing BIM planning, T2O data review during design and construction, performing field walks for QA/QC purposes, and aiding the owner with importing project information to the University's computerized maintenance management system (CMMS).
This was the first project that Texas State has completed involving both design and construction teams engaging in T2O process throughout the project. The $18 million project started in February of 2014, and was complete d and turned over to Texas State on August 31, 2016. The CMMS import was completed on September 2, 2016, an extremely efficient process given the typical turn-around time is 12 months. T he information provided was detailed and complete, enabling a quick startup of the facility and informing Texas State's maintenance teams.
