BIM in Action


Wellington City Council has recently published a case study that demonstrates how they use Building Information Modelling (BIM) to cost effectively manage its property portfolio, specifically focusing on a small social housing complex – Bracken Road Flats. It shows the value of BIM for asset and facilities management with benefits including the ability to forecast ongoing operating costs and plan maintenance to extend the life of assets. Capturing “big data” through BIM can help deliver affordable social housing and infrastructure for our communities.



2015 FM Summit & Trade Expo


We are excited to exhibit at the 2015 FM Summit & Expo, which promises to be a two-day instant fix of current FM thinking. The event features inspirational speakers, educational workshops, an informative trade expo and a gala dinner hosted by award-winning comedian Jeremy Corbett. The FM Summit 2015 will once again be held in the idyllic vineyard setting of Villa Maria winery close to Auckland airport. A great opportunity to network and upskill, the programme consists of 10 workshops to choose from, and a full day of six conference sessions. Make sure you visit SPM Assets stand (booth 20) on Wednesday 6 May or Thursday 6 May.



The top 3 things to have in place for managing assets


Over the past 7 years we have been hosting User Group Events for our clients to learn from our team and other users as we openly share knowledge, information and skills. Last month in Auckland, we held our most popular event yet with close to 70 people attending from 32 organisations.



Reserve your place at our upcoming User Group Events


Our next national User Group Event is being held in Sydney on 23 April, followed by regional events in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth during May. These are must attend events for all users of SPM Assets software seeking to make the most of your asset planning tools. You will have the opportunity to hear from other users of the software and have a say in the future road map of the software. You will also be amongst the first to experience our grand unveiling of new functions.



Can we afford a Strategic asset management framework?


Shane Edmonds put this question forward at last year's Australasian Housing Institute (AHI) Asset Management Professional Practice Seminar in Perth. It created quite a stir. More and more community housing providers in Australia are using Strategic Asset Management Framework (SAMF) as a compass to set the direction on the utilisation of their assets. It is the proven framework based around current policies and standards for organisations to better understand and manage their physical assets. Yet how many housing organisations can really afford a SAMF?
