Recieve the information/data you need, when you need it
What are the latest developments in the industry?
Governments such as those in the United Kingdom have realised that they need to have detailed and accurate data about the buildings/infrastructure they are procuring as well as the stock that they already own. As this helps them build more affordably and manage their assets efficiently.
For this reason COBie* was specified in the UK so that all public sector buildings will have data about the products that have been installed in a standardized way so that it will be easier/more affordable to maintain the assets.
The UK Government has mandated BIM so they not only have accurate data about the buildings they own, they also procure buildings/infrastructure that are built more affordably and to a higher quality.
Owners in the public and private sector are now realizing the immense benefits of using BIM and are starting to actively require the implementation of BIM in their projects.
Collaboration and coordination within the supply chain are among their first priorities as the lack of accuracy, the amount of repeated errors, the double entry of data and the non-compliance between “as designed” and “as built data” were among the main impediments in the pre-BIM era.
* COBie data is an output of Building Information Models (BIM).
