In April this year, the Danish construction knowledge center Molio partnered up with Cobuilder to create a common data dictionary for the Danish construction industry. The goal of this project is to establish a common digital language that enables information to flow freely flow between all actors. We met with the project manager, Mikkel Nygaard Rønne, to get an update on the progress and to learn more about Molio’s approach to the task at hand.
In September, Cobuilder released a new module in its solution Collaborate that helps projects to automatically check and ensure that the construction products and materials they are applying are approved for use in projects seeking Nordic Swan Ecolabel certification.
Digital twins have revolutionised many industries, and their impact on construction can be even more significant if we take into perspective the long lifecycle of built assets. To be able to take full advantage of the data that is collected and stored in the project, product identification is a very important aspect to consider when developing the digital twin.
The Danish construction information center Molio has initiated a project together with Cobuilder to create a data dictionary for the Danish construction industry. This enables the use of a common "digital language" that allows actors across the entire sector to freely exchange digital data.
Language is important because it allows people to communicate in a manner that enables the sharing of common ideas. The same goes for machines - sharing information requires a language they can read and interpret correctly. Especially in the context of Building Information Modelling.
The European Confederation of Woodworking Industries, CEI-Bois, entered recently into a strategic partnership with the Cobuilder. The new pilot project aims to help manufacturers digitise and make their data available in a machine-readable and standardised format.
In February Cobuilder’s Support Team concluded their annual customer satisfaction survey. We would like to thank all our customers who gave us their feedback, and we are happy to share the survey results.
The Swedish industry organisation of timber manufacturers and wholesalers, Swedish wood, has reached an important milestone in their digital journey. ‘In the past few years, we have done a lot of talking about digitalisation. Now it is time for action’, says Christer Green, Product Information Specialist at Swedish Wood.
