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.
Cobuilder, IFS and GS1 have joined forces in a pilot project that seeks to demonstrate the benefits of standards-based data sharing throughout all phases of construction and asset lifecycle management.
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.
