Shanghai Oriental Hospital (affiliated East Hospital of Tongji University) is a large Class 3 Grade A general hospital that combines medical care, teaching, scientific research, emergency medicine, preventive care, rehabilitation, and healthcare in one. The new general building includes two basement floors and 24 stories above ground. As part of a remodeling effort, it was required to introduce the monitoring and control systems of collaborating contractors for the expansion/remodeling of elevators and building automation to the Building Information Modeling (BIM) maintenance and management platform of the Shanghai Oriental Hospital. This would achieve integration of six management aspects for the hospital, namely building information, space, maintenance and service, smart facility monitoring, safety protection, and comprehensive decision-making.
A 3D visualized BIM is currently in the mainstream for building construction among engineering teams. It provides efficiency with enhanced software and hardware and updated construction criteria and regulations. Combining operating data and parameters for all mechanical/electrical systems and facilities within the building control system, the BIM system analyzes operating information to enhance the service and maintenance efficiency of equipment by monitoring energy consumption and conserving energy of mechanical/electrical equipment.
