With the upcoming changes in EU regulations that are expected to set stricter requirements for provision and use of digital environmental data in construction, industry stakeholders are already looking at their digital strategies to prepare for the future.
Revision of the Construction Product Regulation and Construction Digital Product Passports: What lies ahead?
Cobuilder’s Senior Digital Construction Researcher Rumela Atanasova explains some key aspects of the proposed changes to the Construction Product Regulation and the Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation. How will these changes address the need for digital product information in the form of Construction Digital Product Passports?
Swedish Wood is implementing the data dictionary, Define, to develop a standards-based digital language for describing wood products. The goal is to improve collaboration within the industry as well as to facilitate free information flow across the construction supply chain.
A steering committee of major international construction industry stakeholders has been set up to facilitate the implementation and development of a common machine-readable language.
In April 2022, ISO published a new standard that enables the use of environmental data sourced from environmental product declarations (EPDs) in Building Information Modelling.
Swedish Wood implements data templates in a project that seeks to explore automated flow of construction object data during planning, design and construction.
Standard Online and Cobuilder join forces to digitise the content of standards through the development of machine-readable data templates for the construction industry.
We are pleased to announce that Espen Mathisen has joined Cobuilder as the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of the company.
In March this year, the European Confederation of Woodworking Industries, CEI-Bois, initiated a pilot project together with Cobuilder to help manufacturers digitise their data and make it available in a machine-readable and standardised format. We spoke with Hansueli Schmid, one of the members of the CEI-Bois workgroup that manages the TIMBIM project, to learn more about the development of the common data structures for the European timber industry.
