Buildings produce huge volumes of data such as BIM, sensor, occupant and building maintenance data. Data is spread across multiple disconnected systems in numerous formats, making it difficult to identify performance gaps between building design and use. Better methods for gathering and analysing data can be used to support building managers with managing building performance. The knowledge can also be fed back to designers and contractors to help close the performance gaps. We have developed a platform to integrate BIM, sensor and occupant data for providing actionable advice for building managers. A social housing organisation is acting as a use case for the platform. A methodology for developing the information needs to support data capture across disconnected systems is proposed and the challenges of bringing data-sets together to provide meaningful information to building owners and managers are presented.
