The Construction-Operations Building information exchange (COBie) allows designers to extract scheduled asset information to help owners identify the assets in their facilities and to eliminate multiple transcriptions of scheduled assets that occur throughout the project life-cycle.  COBie starts with an outline of room and equipment schedules.   Into that outline installed equipment, product data, signage schedules, warranties, maintenance plans, and replacement parts are captured.   

This presentation describes how an investment in COBie can result in reduced overhead costs and the delivery of an improved product for the owner. This presentation will also cover the requirements of the new Corps of Engineers’ Unified Facility Guide Specification 01 79 00 that requires the delivery of COBie on design-build and construction contracts starting October 2014.
