BASF – driving change in the corporate real estate sector

BASF is one of the world’s leading producers of chemicals with a worldwide portfolio of production facilities and offices – totaling more than a thousand buildings. Corporate real estate management at BASF ranges from development to utilization to disposal and comprise strategic tasks from site/property selection over building/facility services management to transactions or re-development.

Complex challenges requiring innovative solutions

Managing such a number of sites, people and processes naturally comes with an endless amount of data as well as various systems. A major pain point is isolated data silos especially in the sectors of building operation costs, sustainability, contracting and the variety of CAFM systems from service providers.

Digital transformation is the path forward

The co-innovation project with BuildingMinds is driving digital transformation of the Corporate Real estate management. Their common goal is to combine a proof of concept for step-by-step integration of all data sources into one single platform in order to manage all related processes with one solution in the future, as well as setting up Digital Building Twins and addressing issues such as leasing data, sustainability and workflow management.

Being a major pillar of both Alstria’s and BuildingMinds’s DNA, sustainability is at the core of the joint co-innovation project with a clear goal of impacting the entire real estate industry.

A joint team of 20 people is constantly working on three work streams, which focus on the further development and definition of the Common Data Model, sustainability, document classification, and authorization concept.

The projects consist of core work streams, representing the basis of real estate digitalization projects:

  • Digital Building Twin – including creation of a 3D BIM model
  • Capturing technical building equipment and integrating it into the 3D BIM model
