Transforming to the digital way
Digital technology is the key enabler of closer collaboration between parties from different phases of the project lifecycle, as well as improving the coordination of multiple teams in real-time. Through early collaborative working by the consultant, contractor and integrator, the client can mitigate further project risks by defining technology requirements at an early stage and integrating these into the project. This will help inform clients and facilitate early decisions, especially for BIM, digital twins, and cloud-storage solutions, which have a role to play throughout an asset’s life cycle.
A single project management plan available to all and source of current project information in the cloud make work more efficient and minimise abortive works and wastage by parties working with out-of-date drawings and information. This supports the integrated project delivery approach of a collaborative model.
