The French construction business and institutions are among the first ones to adopt policies to digitise the construction sector. They recognise the need of optimised work methods through standards application and automated data management.
The act of building is indeed a complex process involving a multiplicity of actors who deploy significant coordination efforts at design, procurement, construction and until delivery to manage the intricacies of a project.
To achieve a better built environment, BIM (Building Information Modelling) has the means to enable future collaborative work in a closer, faster, and more responsive way at all stages. It brings, for all projects and stakeholders, an increased productivity and quality gains over the life of a building: its programming, design, construction, renovation, operations, management, and maintenance. A very important aspect of allowing BIM best practices to improve collaborative work is the standardisation of data exchange. Cobuilder’s products goBIM, Define and Collaborate solve a complex issue when it comes to managing data quality. It is the lack of common language between organisations during the complete building project lifecycle. By providing a ready-to-use solution to construction actors and machines, they can structure, share, and update data of any type of construction objects, and this, with the help of a common data dictionary. Data exchange is the turnkey element of achieving better results with BIM.
