With the wide application of BIM, the technology of Operation and Maintenance (O&M) management is developing. By combining BIM with facility management, it can visually manage the model and highly integrate information of the model. As a common data standard of BIM, IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) standard can avoid the problems caused by the mismatch of information between different models. This paper proposes a method of BIM-based facility management and describes the key technical issues in the development of O&M systems. The O&M system leverages BIMserver and its public plug-in interface as a system framework to analyze IFC data. Through the study in this paper, a new method can be developed for future underground space O&M management.
