This paper reports on a case study into the asset development and management process of a repeat client, with a particular focus on the integration of FM with other aspects of asset development. The study involved detailed interviews with key personnel and a review of documents and specifications used in the client‟s operations. Preliminary findings suggest that information exchange between AEC and FM is process-driven, and relies more on the interactions of people rather than on defined standards for the representation and exchange of information. The updating of asset information in refurbishment projects was also found to be problematic. This study appears to support the view that greater standardization enhances the representation and exchange of AEC data for FM purposes, but further research is required to determine how best AEC information can be configured to automatically map on to FM information requirements.
