BIM4Housing at Digital Construction Week May 18th

What does the digital record need to include?

What information is needed from each discipline?

How can Better Information Management (BIM) help?

The culmination of a series of online roundtables, including hundreds of experts from across the stakeholder spectrum, will be a ‘live’ in-person session bringing together our findings for evaluation and improvement. That will be at Digital Construction week on May 18th.

If you’d like to come along or get involved with those online roundtable discussions, please message me.

Background thinking:

The lack of clear direction from the Regulator means landlords, developers and contractors are unclear about what they should have in place. The new Regulatory regime requires “accountable people” to demonstrate that they have measures in place that keep tenants safe.

How do they check handover information contains everything they need, in a format that they can keep updated and share with key stakeholders?

On new-build, Gateways 2 and 3 reviews could delay or stop projects from progressing, so how can Better Information reduce that risk – and how should we manage that information?

BIM4Housing’s community of Developers, Designers, Contractors, Manufacturers, Operators and Advisors have spent the last couple of years digging deep into what information each party needs and how it might be gathered. Our contribution to the Golden Thread Initiative is ongoing, with Tier 1 contractors reconsidering how specialists can be engaged earlier, to complete the design by Gateway 2.

We now need to apply what we have learned to redesign some established processes, add different information to the software we are using and produce different information. Some firms will have much of this sorted, but many are just starting the journey. Just as designing and delivering a building is a collaborative endeavour, no single vendor has the complete Golden Thread solution. Each project will have dozens, even hundreds, of Golden Threads that must be weaved together to deliver what we need to deliver safer, more sustainable, homes for people.
