Easy entry into BIM modeling of existing space and real time upkeep of the Capital Asset Inventory (CAI). Make your drawings work for you! Record existing facility conditions, generate single line diagrams, two and three-dimensional representations, and data reports. Establishes “one stop shopping” through a single Facility Management Workstation for tracking, monitoring, and validation of critical programs such as: (Legionella Water Safety Plan, Capital Implementation Plans, FCA visualization, Energy Audits, Asbestos Surveys, Equipment details and much more).
VA experienced water team in the development of Directive 1061 compliant Water Safety Plans to include an integrated tracking and monitoring process with BIM modeling designed to reduce/manage the hazards from waterborne pathogens such as – Legionella bacteria, and fungal airborne pathogens – Aspergillus (Help with water safety).
Conduct asbestos surveys and re-inspections, sampling, labeling of suspected areas, and preparation of floor plans that can include data rich BIM modeling as a means of storing and assessing source documents.
Simple energy audits equip building owners with a list of no or low-cost recommendations and a general road map for future planning. More complex energy audits provide a comprehensive energy efficiency capital investment planning line with a building owner’s financial goals. Other services include re-commissioning, engineering controls monitoring, data/trend analysis, and BIM modeling integration designed to support the Energy Manager’s oversight of the VA’s Energy Program.
RCC’s approach includes the assessment of facilities and campuses through both documentation audits and visual inspections. These reviews center on the concept of concentric levels of control and protection to provide progressively enhanced levels of security. The concentric levels approach offers redundancy in lines of defense that is less likely to be breached. RCC has assembled a team of experts to include Certified Safety Specialist and Structural Blast Specialist experts that can assist with the implementation of physical security standards for improving the protection of mission critical and life safety facilities. We understand that Federal Agencies include within their basic mission statements, the need to protect the health and safety of customers, employees, and visitors.
Building information modeling (BIM) is widely used in design and construction. Having access to the model data is a valuable tool for facilities management, but it’s rarely accessed by owners. Romanyk Consulting Corp. (RCC) joined forces with IMAGINiT Technologies to offer a solution using IMAGINiT Clarity Owner Data Portal (ODP).Not only can RCC help your team transition your old floor plans into models, but they can also help you manage that data throughout its life cycle. Imagine having access to current data and plans, past and present, anytime, anywhere. The VA Facility Information Management (VAFIM) system is an online tool that you can use from a computer, tablet, or smart phone. You can manage your model data with reliable, secure, and up to date files giving you more time and budget for other important tasks.
