Historically, information transmittals for a building under construction have been done on paper and therefore a significant portion of the information is lost once the building is completed. The Construction Operations Building information exchange (COBie) keeps this information in a usable format for everyone to access throughout the building's life cycle.
The primary benefit of COBie is that it enables information to flow from the design phase, allows information to be added during construction and is available to deliver the information to the facility manager upon completion. Many organizations are now requiring COBie for their projects and more will be doing so in the future. COBie is the information base for the United Kingdom's building information modeling (BIM) implementation. COBie adds the "I" to BIM.
This course provides the basis for implementing a strong COBie strategy for any organization.
