GS1 & IFS collaborate to make digital building information a reality
Two leading Irish organisations, Integrated Facilities Solutions Ltd. (IFS) and GS1 Ireland, are to collaborate to make the digital exchange of building information a reality for building owners, designers, contractors and operators.
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.
