||Facility Capacity Analysis
||W East, N Nisbet
||Many public owners maintain large of building requirements in standard criteria publications. These criteria represent the combined knowledge of building owners based on their experience over decades of working on such buildings. While this information, such as, room data sheets are used during the architectural programming stage, the project team cannot use these criteria later to ensure that the facility continues to meet its intended function into construction and operations. Without knowing the capacity of building spaces, there is no way for building owners to effectively manage their facility portfolio. As the delivery of building information models becomes more prevalent, tools are needed to allow project stakeholders to evaluate the validity of those models. This paper presents model for facility capacity analysis based on an open specification for the expression of facility criteria and the application of that criteria using light-weight building information modeling tools.
