Benefits for the whole construction value chain
Implementing a common digital language based on information within standards will offer several advantages to the global built environment sector. Once the data templates are available in Define Data Dictionary, any software and model authoring tool can take advantage by using them to exchange, map, or compare information about construction products, assets and systems according to British or any other international standard.
After Brexit, this is especially important for British manufacturers operating on the international market as they can check and verify whether their products and services are in accordance with national and European requirements.
Contractors and other built environment actors can use the standardised data templates in projects to improve business processes, such as cost calculations, design, purchasing, carbon footprint calculations and more.
For all other stakeholders in the built environment value chain, a common digital language based on standards would mean improved cross-border collaboration, better data management and streamlined processes for managing environmental requirements.
