It shouldn’t take a tragedy to drive change, but sadly Grenfell and the subsequent Hackitt Review, highlighted a catalogue of failings that has shaken the building and construction industry to its core.
The Building Safety Bill and Fire Safety act aim to ensure we never see the likes of Grenfell again by not only improving overall safety in high risk residential buildings, but also improving compliance through the tracking, processing, and management of information and assets.
Lifecycle asset management for improved safety
One area that is considered critical for success across the industry, and at the core of the Building Safety Bill, is the need for widespread adoption of digital technologies. Improved data visibility, traceability and building asset management – a golden thread of information – throughout the building lifecycle will be essential.
Our latest e-book, The golden thread, digital tools and golden opportunities, is a deep dive into the golden thread and looks at what it means for the industry, how to comply and how it can be upheld across your business and your assets.
Understanding the Golden Thread
With digital transformation key to the golden thread, our e-book explains why it is so important to avoid any future tragedies like Grenfell. We also explore ways in which it can deliver numerous benefits, such as improving communication, increasing efficiency and reducing rework.
A single source of truth, from BIM to Handover
For any business or building with legacy systems or processes in place, data management can be complex and challenging. However, by adopting a single source of truth, via a common data environment, means ease of access for all parties throughout the entire lifespan.
Compliance with the Building Safety Bill is critical for the future of the construction industry, and any measures that saves lives and improves safety is understandably a priority. However, with change comes additional benefits, such as the ability to automate processes, which not only improve fire safety but also reduce human error, deliver greater accuracy – from BIM to construction – not to mention more effective logging and reporting.
