As the scale of construction increasing and the structure being more complicated, it is necessary to use the computer information technology to promote the industrial efficiency and tend with information management. The application of Building Information Modeling (BIM) has become the trend. As there are different benefits in each phase of construction life cycle by using different BIM functions and there will produce different system efficiency by different participants when applying BIM technique; to make management of the facility maintenance at the period of using in effect, it is necessary to consider the management of facility maintenance at the phase on planning and to make it easier to manage and reduce costs. In current, the most of BIM application and research are focusing on how to aid the design and construction phases. There are rarely researched of the facility using and maintenance after construction. This research will build a photo type management system database of the school educational facilities maintenance by using BIM technique, to allow managers can realize the historic fixing records, material categories and other related information. This system also can remind the facility’s service life will near and need to be changed automatically. Based on the illustration of this research, this system can make facilities maintenance more effective.
