ACE Moharram Bakhoum

BIM Manager


I'm a BIM Manager at ACE Moharram Bakhoum, ACE Moharram Bakhoum was established in 1950 with over 70 years of success. It is one of the oldest and most experienced multi-disciplinary engineering consulting companies in the world, with an architectural engineering background. I have had the privilege of working on various mega projects worldwide, leveraging my expertise in Building Information Modeling (BIM) coordination such as King Salman Park in KSA, King Abdullah Financial District fit-out interior in KSA, Al Taif Children Hospital in KSA, KNAUF Factory in Egypt and Shurayrah Island Hotel East Dune Camp in KSA and many various projects. I'm responsible for facilitating the implementation and coordination of Building Information Modeling (BIM) processes within a project. I oversee the creation and management of BIM models, coordinate and integrate multidisciplinary design inputs, ensure BIM compliance, and support the overall project team in achieving project objectives. Additionally, I troubleshoot BIM-related issues, train team members on BIM software and processes, and contribute to the continuous improvement of BIM workflows. Also, I have worked in training various professional engineers on Revit software since 2020, and Revit certified professional from Autodesk since 2015.

 What to expect during the event

Facilities Management (FM) is a complex and multidisciplinary field that involves the coordination and integration of various processes, services, and resources to ensure the optimal performance and functionality of built environments. One of the emerging technologies that can potentially transform FM in this context is Building Information Modelling (BIM), Although BIM for FM has attracted attention in both education and practice and is widely sought in the FM sector, it is still a long way from being implemented effectively. Facility managers are unsure of the skills needed for BIM and whether it would speed up the process or be a cost-effective option. The key to successful BIM implementation in the FM business is to improve engagement throughout the project lifecycle. The value of FM in the construction business is still under inquiry, though. In other words, FM is not understood by construction.
Moreover, interoperability and data sharing are complicated. Therefore, it is necessary to prove the accuracy of the advantages, applications, and difficulties noted in order to assist in the implementation of BIM.
Generally, the operation and maintenance phase in building projects is considered the longest phase in the building lifecycle. it shares about 60 to 85% of the total cost.

1. Understanding the importance of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in construction projects for efficient Facility Management (FM).
2. Recognizing the potential benefits of using BIM for seamless FM.
3. Gaining insights into the challenges and barriers that organizations may face when implementing BIM for FM and learning strategies to overcome them.
