BIM for FM: The connection between data and sustainability

For design, planning, and construction, the focus is on going green, with the market for sustainable buildings set to grow to 1312.12 billion by 2030. Architects design structures that blend into the environment. Planners look for materials from renewable sources, and construction teams worry about their carbon footprint. But what about facility managers? How can they keep the green going once the building is in operations and maintenance?

By leveraging BIM for FM, they can both make the most of existing sustainable elements while introducing new ones.

Tire tracking: Today’s features for tomorrow’s tires

For fleet managers, there’s already well-established ways to control tire costs, including implementing maintenance and DVIR checklists, ensuring tires are properly inflated, and following a tire maintenance schedule. But as important as your tire tracking program is now, it’s set to become even more so in the near future.

As consumers and regulators fuel the drive for sustainability across fleet-heavy industries, new types of tires, especially those featuring innovations in materials and design, could introduce uncertainty in terms of performance and durability. Fleet managers will need to track tires even more closely to ensure they get the best possible return on investment. 

The future of tires is bright, with new materials and designs promising a smaller environmental footprint at every stage of the life cycle, from collecting feedstock to recycling old scrap tires. But new technology inevitably involves unknown outcomes. For fleet managers, now is the best time to start or ramp up tire tracking, so you can control costs today and make data-backed decisions in the future.

That’s no mean feat, and in many cases, you need to look at everything from supply chains to company culture.

But you can reach your goals, and the best place to start is by looking at where others have already made progress.
