Building Advisory Services - Building Lifecycle Services

Where digitalisation meets performance and sustainability

Where digitalisation meets performance and sustainability

TÜV SÜD takes you on a BIM & Digital journey that started in 2017. As a leading global expert for testing, inspection and certification, TÜV SÜD Building Advisory Services team have a wealth of experience in building lifecycle digitalisation from design, construction to operation.

OUR MISSION:

  • Assist our clients in all aspects of BIM & Digital advisory
  • Set new standards for building quality and safety
  • Reduce cost factors such as energy consumption and rework
  • Empower project control and building management

OUR APPROACH:

  • Utilise and expand upon industry standard BIM & Digital processes. Build upon the BIM Level 2 mandate in 2016 and evolve into the requirements of ISO 19650 and the UK BIM Framework.
  • Work with our clients to understand their information requirements and build an approach to suit their organisation, project or asset.
  • Always start with the end in mind to optimise building operation & maintenance through construction excellence and best-in-class design

OUR SERVICES:

As a one-stop service provider for technical, safety, performance and compliance excellence of buildings across design, construction and operation, TÜV SÜD provides advisory, testing, inspection, certification and management services through all stages of building lifecycle.

For Real Estate owners and investors, TÜV SÜD value-adds by identifying the economical and impactful use cases and processes for BIM & Digital Services. The digital lifecycle solutions accelerate the Return-on-Invest and profit for the assets. We set up technology specifications and environment for practice-driven Digital Twin implementation and provide advice on performance-safety-cost ratio of the building operation. Eventually achieving building lifecycle success across design, construction and operation with advisory and management solutions suitable for any building type.

For contractors and project managers, TÜV SÜD BIM & Digital Services Twin uprates the technical certainty towards a truly construction-approved building design and increase the efficiency through displaying structured centralised data on a visual project dashboard.

For facility managers and asset managers, TÜV SÜD BIM & Digital Services automates the health and performance checks of the building, enabling a higher level of operation and maintenance transparency on building utilisation. Thus, reducing operation expenses.


PROJECT RESULTS:

OPTIMISE BUILDING PERFORMANCE DURING DESIGN PHASE

  • Increase energy efficiency by 50% as compared to previous building with parametric (Level of Information) benchmarks to achieve optimal Cost-to-Performance ratio.
  • Maximum building safety through BIM-based quality and risk checks on constructability, maintainability and safety issues using model checkers and BIM audits.

EMPOWER BUILDING SAFETY IN CONSTRUCTION PHASE

Minimise construction discrepancies by comparing images captured by a drone during Smart Façade Inspection (create our own Drone page to reference from here) against design models. This is done by conducting model checks and BIM audits.

  • Save up to 30% of the project cost by comparing 360-degree laser scan of all levels against the original BIM models to identify deviations so that they can be corrected in a timely basis.
  • Digital construction progress reports replace paperwork to generate timely and automated reporting, avoiding delay in the construction process.

OPTIMISE PERFORMANCE AND COMFORT IN OPERATION & MAINTENANCE PHASE

  • Avoid discomfort and additional expenses on energy consumption by conducting building automation evaluation to ensure that building functions are properly implemented from Day 1.
  • Reduce costs and time for data redevelopment and facility management handover by using “AsBuilt” model to streamline the setup of Digital Twin.
  • 24/7 optimal building guaranteed through our Building Asset Portal via digital O&M dashboard. Building health, safety and performance are monitored via BIM, CAFM and integrated IoT structure.
  • Highest lift safety and reduce lift maintenance and repair costs through TUV SUD’s Lift Manager service with more than 80% accuracy.

TÜV SÜD’S DIGITAL TWIN IS USED AS THE BASIS FOR TÜV ÜD @ IBP BUILDING LIFECYCLE DIGITALISATION

Digital lifecycle management - TÜV SÜD Digital Twin is set up as harmonised and well-structured Information, a handover platform across any disciplines and building phases to achieve seamless knowledge transfer and accurate process management throughout the building lifecycle.

Digital risk and quality management - TÜV SÜD Digital Twin accelerates defect and error detection. It transforms random spot checks into a highly agile, close-meshed full pre-testing and approval measures that provides better project and cost control for project owners.

Compliance & performance portal - TÜV SÜD Digital Twin outperforms in legal operational excellence and user experience. It makes assets the safest and most delightful places to live and work in.

BUILDING ADVISORY SERVICE – BIM ADVISORY

Defining Information Requirements – We work with our clients to identify their current Information Requirements and the plan for these aspects looking to the future. This includes all aspects of BIM process, aligning with ISO 19650 and other BIM related standards.

Assessment and Upskilling – TUV SUD BAS UK can assess your organisation or supply chain with regard to BIM capability, we can then upskill where required to bring all parties to a consistent base level of knowledge which is integrated into your day to day processes.

ISO 19650 Adoption – We can assist in all aspects of ISO 19650 advisory, whether it be a transition from BIM Level 2 standards such as BS/PAS1192 processes or starting a fresh with BIM.

Corporate Accreditation – We are able to assess your current corporate processes and give feedback and opportunities for improvement prior to undertaking one of the BIM / ISO 19650 Accreditation schemes currently available.

Software/Tools Advisory – TUV SUD are not affiliated with any software providers but have an overarching view of all possible solutions to suit your information requirements. We are happy to undertake a review of current processes and identify time/cost/efficiency savings where possible.
