Delivering COBie using Autodesk Revit Full (4 Days)

(Construction Operations Building Information Exchange)


Run in conjunction with MMA Consulting Engineers, and 2 of the co-authors of the book: 

“Delivering Construction-Operations Building Information Exchange (COBie) using Autodesk Revit”


Instructors: Dr. Shawn O’Keeffe & Richard Kenna


What is COBie?


COBie (Construction-Operations Building information exchange) represents the digital non-graphical data that needs to be delivered on construction projects using BIM (Building Information Modelling). Information that is required to populate CMMS & CAFM systems (computerized maintenance management systems & computer-aided facilities management systems), to effectively, maintain and operate facilities.

Course Outline:


This course provides hands-on training in using Autodesk Revit for COBie. Trainees will gain an understanding of the principles of COBie for Design methodology, as well as hands-on experience building a Revit model in one or more discipline areas; understanding the steps required to quality check output and ultimately to be able to ensure that drawings, schedules, models and COBie in Microsoft Excel (xlsx) format, all match and can be verified. Success will be the ability to produce a COBie xlsx file from the Revit model that passes the COBie QC (quality control) report. The COBie QC report is a software-based verification of the COBie MVD form IFC 2x3.
