SEPS 2 BIM - Healthcare Space & Equipment TemplatesKimon O.
BIM Equipment Objects, Space Templates & Departments These are sample output from the Space and Equipment Planning (SEPS) database that generates BIM in real time. These templates were created by exporting from the SEPS2BIM Utilities and importing that data into SketchUp. A plug in in SketchUp then goes and gathers the correct objects from the 1691 Collection on the 3D Warehouse and places them in the space. One can also create a “fresh” version of these models by generating an output from SEPS2BIM. The exact same BIMs can also be created in other format such as Revit, and Onuma System. Healthcare Space and Equipment Planning - Space and Equipment Planning (SEPS) impacts the bottom line of planning, design, construction and facility operations. With two large healthcare owners making their facility requirements data accessible –– SEPS 2 BIM is an unprecedented milestone for facility planning. SEPS 2 BIM enables consultants and software applications to link facility requirement data to apps. SEPS 2 BIM provides new services to owners. SEPS is a standalone Government off the Shelf (GOTS) web based application and database. SEPS creates baseline Programs for Design (PFD) and Project Room Contents (PRC) for Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense Health Agency healthcare projects. Users input answers to a series of questions relative to mission, workload and staffing. From these inputs, a project program is generated by SEPS in the form of required spaces and equipment. The MILSTD 1691 Equipment database and associated BIM objects are used in the VA and DoD DHA standard room templates. Designers can use the objects and templates to manually create BIMs or the SEPS 2 BIM tools can automate the creation of BIM from SEPS. #1691 #BIM #DoD_DHA #Onuma_System #Revit #SEPS #SketchUP #VA
