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.
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.
In this article, we draw your attention to the environmental impact of construction products and their key environmental indicators.
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.
The Product Circularity Data Sheet is released to thousands of users internationally through the Cobuilder platform
The Product Circularity Data Sheet (PCDS) is a standardised digital fingerprint for sharing trusted data on the circularity characteristics of products across supply chains. The PCDS has been developed by the Ministry of Economy of Luxembourg and +ImpaKT, in collaboration with more than 50 international organizations. Today, the PCDS is being made available internationally to thousands of users through Cobuilder's solution Define.
