Nathan Doughty, Asite CEO, said:

As we at Asite continue our rich history of digital innovation for the built environment into our third decade, we look forward to working ever more closely with RICS and ensuring our platforms and services are incorporating the latest global industry standards.

Through this work we will bring a focus on data and open data platforms for our customers so they can remain at the forefront of change in the built environment for years to come.”

Andrew Knight, RICS, said: 



“It’s tremendous to have Asite on the Programme and we look forward to working with them on joint thought leadership and supporting their work to integrate the RICS Data Standard (RDS) that supports our international standards in the digital world.”



The RICS managed Programme ensures global providers of technology and data in the built environment are following appropriate international standards whilst proving professional assurance to their customers.

It provides an opportunity for organizations across the built environment sector to come together and collaborate on these operating standards. Combining the complementary skill sets of professionals in the property and technology spaces allows participants to take their discussions about technology and data as a golden thread of information further.

Organizations from across the whole property lifecycle, including those who address all the different asset types, will join together to create an innovative global team that will provide digital content to help the profession understand and adopt solutions that deliver real value and complement their professional activities.

The Tech Partner Programme also seeks to encourage the continued collaboration and mutually beneficial learning between innovators from outside the property sector and the profession itself.

As part of this partnership, Asite will develop and rollout support for the RICS Data Standards (RDS) into the Asite Platform. Asite’s implementation of the RDS references will support a range of RICS and international standards covering property measurement, construction cost measurement, life-cycle costing, embodied carbon and key performance metrics for construction and building operations.

For years Asite has been at the forefront of digital innovation and has a strong reputation for providing collaborative digital solutions across the built environment.

Our world-leading cloud-based Asite Platform has been built in-house since 2001 and is also ever-growing, constantly developing new integrations and products to help our clients excel and adding to the Asite Ecosystem. Our software helps thousands of organizations in traditional industries automate their collaborative business processes and focus their attention on delivering innovative projects.
