Recently, the National Institute of Building Sciences released a US National BIM Guide for Owners. And we here at IMAGINiT have been talking BIM for facilities management for a long time.
For a start, owners stand to gain the most from models, if they are built in a way that allows the information to be used for maintenance. As to standards, it's better for owners to have their own guidelines. This helps project teams deliver the data at handoff that makes it simple to get the operations and maintenance team up and running.
