MediaCityUK is a regeneration project expected to attract media institutions locally and from around the world thus establishing itself as an international centre for excellence. A study has been carried out by the University of Salford to appraise the MediaCityUK project on the extent to which it is expected to contribute to the sustainable cities vision put forward by the UK government. Also there is a planned relocation by some departments of the University of Salford to the allocated building in the MediaCityUK development. This move highlights the need for a well managed cost effective and sustainable relocation process. As part of the above study, this report focuses on the benefits of BIM (Building Information Model) in the project management and consequent facilities management of the planned move. The report addresses the relocation process management under two major heading which reflects the two parts involved which are; project management of the relocation process and facilities management during the occupancy period. The study focused on digital modelling, relocation efficiency and performance benchmarking during life cycle to identify BIM benefits. The BIM tool selected for this study is the Revit Architecture software by Autodesk. There were constraints in quality of data retrieval hence a “what if” scenario which attempts to replicate the accurate data capture was adopted for this study. BIM model contribution to time planning during the relocation was analysed by comparing with generated MediaCityUK model using the identified items from first objective. This satisfied the second study objective. Second objective comparisons revealed the contributions of BIM in FM maintenance operations and space management thus fulfilling third and fourth study objectives.
