  The benefits of IDD also extend to Facilities Management (FM). At the PSA Tuas Port Maintenance Base, which is currently under construction, the project team will be integrating the building’s BIM data into an asset management system. This will allow the future FM team to plan and execute building maintenance work with 20 percent efficiency improvement.
In further efforts to develop an IDD ecosystem with enabling solutions and standards, BCA and the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) awarded Delphi the first technology grant call to develop a Construction Digital Platform in 2019. This platform, which is built on open standards, would enhance interoperability across various IDD and BIM softwares, enable seamless exchange of data, and promote
deeper and wider collaboration across the industry. Third-party service providers, such as quantity surveyors, M&E consultants and DfM consultants, can offer their own digital products and services on the platform. The ability to more accurately estimate demand for materials and manpower, realise just-in-time efficiencies, ensure error-free transactions, and eventual reduction of re-work through the use of new digital and data services, are some of the benefits of such a digital platform.
To help firms build up their digital capabilities, BCA and IMDA, in partnership with SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG), developed the Construction and Facilities Management Industry Digital Plan (IDP). The IDP aims to guide small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) in their digital transformation efforts through a
