What can we learn from the UK's National Data Strategy

Posted by Rachel Carey on 30-Oct-2020 04:58:53

In response to the great technological changes that have taken place over the past five years, the UK’s National Data Strategy outlines the UK Government's plan to invest in data to strengthen the economy and create future opportunities.

As part of the strategy, the Government commits to the development of a clear policy framework that will determine what interventions are needed to unlock the value and power of data across the economy and help propel the UK forward in its recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

It is imperative, as this strategy begins to take shape, that it is monitored and examined by global audiences, who can borrow from the framework to excel their own optimization of data and work together to achieve a global interoperable data sharing system.

Embracing new technologies: The key to meeting government housing targets and solving housing demand in the UK

Posted by Rachel Carey on 06-May-2020 00:00:00


According to the National Housing Federation, in 2019, an estimated 8.4 million people in England were living in an unaffordable, insecure, or unsuitable home. These housing issues included overcrowding, poor-quality homes, and so-called "hidden households" – a term to describe situations in which people cannot afford to move out of house shares, parental homes, or those shared with an ex-partner.

This problem is not unique to England; every other country is also in the midst of a housing crisis with demand continuing to grow. There is a real concern that the COVID-19 pandemic will worsen the crisis.

Embracing new construction techniques is one way the industry can respond.

China, the beacon of hope – How the construction industry is responding to COVID-19

Posted by Rachel Carey on 24-Mar-2020 13:28:29

COVID-19 has caused widespread disruption to the construction industry internationally.

The initial difficulties sourcing construction materials, as a result of mass production shutdowns and supply chain disruptions in China, caused a ripple effect across all sectors globally. Project sites were further disrupted with the introduction of social distancing measures in a bid to prioritize the safety of workers.

However, while we can expect that the construction industry will face increasing challenges as virus numbers continue to grow worldwide, the declining number of cases in China and the reopening of the nation’s construction sites does offer some hope.

Why a Common Data Environment is essential for your project?

Posted by Rachel Carey on 17-Mar-2020 11:24:20

A Common Data Environment (CDE) is a central repository where construction project information is housed. It is the single source of information for the project. It is used to collect, manage, collaborate, and share project information with the project team..

A CDE is updated throughout the project lifecycle. It can hold information relating to all aspects of the project, including documents, contracts, reports, bids, and model information. A CDE enhances collaboration and increases security and the auditability of data. It also streamlines systems and processes used within and between the company and their supply chain.
