In the past year, we have been working closely with the users of our solution Cobuilder Collaborate in Norway to develop a new tool that will help companies to better manage the risk associated with handling hazardous chemicals on the construction site.

In recent years, different organisations have developed data models that are gradually being adopted across the construction sector to facilitate data exchange and accelerate the digital transformation. In this article we will compare the two most prevalent approaches and consider the pros and cons of applying them on industry level. The first approach is the use of classification systems to digitise information about construction objects. The second alternative is Data Templates proposed by the standardisation bodies ISO and CEN for use in Building Information Modelling.
