Leaders in information management using OpenBIM for the built environment

Increase your productivity, reduce costs, and increase your output by automating information assurance across the built environment lifecycle

Smarter information management for the built environment can increase asset life, safety, efficiency, liveability, and capacity, it can reduce waste, risk, cost, and carbon. Built environment asset integrity needs data integrity.

Is your information about the built environment fit for purpose?

Information about the built environment lifecycle comes from different sources, is often in different structures such as data, documents, and 3D BIM models; yet they all need to adhere to specified and documented information requirements and rules. Organisations need to procure, receive, store (via a system of record) and present information to perform core business functions across built environment lifecycle activities, and it is absolutely essential that this data is assured through all of these steps. 1Spatial can deliver a positive impact for your organisation by enabling a trusted data foundation, thanks to automated information assurance (verification and validation).

Data, documents, and 3D BIM models gathered for the built environment from Appointing Parties, Lead Appointed Parties and Suppliers needs to be continually managed, checked, and consolidated into a structured data repository, finally making it across the asset owner’s “contract line”. We can help ensure that information sources are checked and reported for quality and adherence to specified information requirements and rules throughout the information management journey and across the built environment lifecycle.

Is it taking too long to check your information?

Manually checking information against specified requirements, manual mapping to documented schemas and challenges with integrating disparate information all contribute to extended delays in making information available to users for asset project and programme management, finance, planning and response and compliance. Automated information management products for extracting information, checking information against requirements using rules, and information integration will make consistent, higher quality information available to your users and stakeholders for business operations and digital transformation sooner.

“Spatial data is pivotal to the Environment Agency’s digital transformation. We are demonstrating how, by defining data requirements and rules in a machine-readable format, data can be generated at source by suppliers, submitted, verified, and validated before being formally accepted. 1Spatial’s data skills are essential to the successful outcome.”
