The two partners are to work together to address the problems associated with the lack of visibility, traceability and certainty in building information management in Ireland; from planning and design, through to handover and close-out, to operations and maintenance. The partnership will focus on bringing together interested industry stakeholders from across the supply chain, to learn about, and adopt, best-in-class standardised data sharing practices. The resulting added value from the use of standardised digital data will be delivered through resource efficiency and productivity gains throughout the lifespan of a building. Read full release.
