As buildings age, facilities management becomes an issue for institutions like Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Throughout a building’s lifecycle, drawings become inaccurate, code compliance becomes dated, and safety hazards emerge. This project developed a framework to investigate and update structural and fire protection systems to ensure code compliance and to generate a comprehensive Building Information Model for functional documentation. Washburn Shops, built as one of the first buildings at WPI in 1867, provides a case study for this facilities management framework.
