This study demonstrates how to integrate 2D and 3D information in the various design stages and provides an effective facility management solution from a life cycle point of view based on building information modeling (BIM) techniques. The research proposed a framework of design information structure by examining practical design projects. With the proposed information structure, the research applied Autodesk Revit Architecture and Solibri Model Viewer, which employs parametric modeling and visual design techniques, to develop a BIM-enabled facility management information system. The developed system provided consistent information service in various design stages. In addition, facility managers could make inquiries to acquire comprehensive information related with design components or installed facilities in the design project. The overall system provided an effective decision support mechanism to maintain the facility performance from a project’s life cycle point of view.
