This paper presents Enterprise BIM (EBIM), which is the utilization of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in a holistic organizational aspect structure during the entire life cycle of a building. EBIM acts as a virtual comprehensive representation of the buildings and infrastructure that is aimed to optimize andimprove business management, knowledge sharing, digital interaction and connection in the different phases of the building life cycle. This study shows how EBIM could support an organization’s core business operationally and strategically. In fact, EBIM is aimed to support the building’s entire life cycle and in this approach facility management (FM) is considered as a necessity. This paper demonstrates that FM is not a dedicated or a separate system and it uses exactly the same data as those required for business operations. Hence, we have surveyed the role of EBIM at St. Olavs Hospital as a case study for further consideration. St. Olavs Hospital uses EBIM to realize the goals of better and cheaper construction projects and real estate operations management with the aim of more efficient use of resources. The case study highlights the details and benefits of this approach both with respect to processes, tools and techniques. Furthermore, we demonstrate how EBIM may support interoperability, transparent communication and collaboration among the core business, facility management, the project organization and the different stakeholders throughout the building life cycle.
