Driving the digital transformation of global construction and infrastructure.
The Information Management project develops tools and guidance designed to support industry to adapt and thrive within an evolving digital landscape. Information Management is the key to unlocking industry’s potential, providing the golden thread that enables transformation to evolve and improve our sector.
Supporting and accelerating digital adoption and implementation across industry.
Digital evolution is occurring across our infrastructure. From UK Government’s BIM Mandate, the Construction Playbook and the introduction of the National Digital Twin Programme, to the increasing use of machine learning and artificial intelligence in infrastructure, the direction of travel is steered towards an increasingly digital future.
The value of digital transformation within construction and infrastructure is realised when Information Management is applied and chasms are bridged, creating greater efficiencies, improved quality and consistency, reduced costs and increased resilience and agility.
When information is managed effectively, in a trusted and secure way, it becomes the golden thread that runs throughout our infrastructure, enabling every element to be seamlessly interoperable, benefitting from one another and creating a more effective system that delivers greater value to society, the economy and the environment.
Within the Construction Innovation Hub’s project scope alone Information Management is the critical enabler that ensure the Value Toolkit, Platform Programme and International work can all achieve their individual, and collective goals.
By working in partnership with industry, Government and academia, producing open-source outputs that support industry along on the transformation journey, we will help to drive wider adoption of digital ways of working and realise the real benefits that this unlocks for everyone.
The future of construction and infrastructure is focused on digital advancement. There’s no winding the clock back, only forward.
Information Management is creating the process and the digital tools needed to deliver whole-life value of assets – unlocking long-term benefits across society, the economy and the environment for future generations.
Aligned to the UK Government’s ambition to build back better, the simple yet radical Vision for the Built Environment calls for people and nature to be at the heart of how we design, build, operate, and use our existing built environment. We must make better decisions now to deliver a better future for all.
The shared Vision was developed in partnership with 75 industry leaders and endorsed by more than 35 public and private sector organisations and cross-industry bodies, including the British Standards Organisation, the Chartered Institute of Building, Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, and the Construction Leadership Council.
For the first time in history, we have the tools and technology to work together to make this future Vision a reality and to manage the built environment in a way that addresses the biggest challenges of our time, from the climate crisis to the COVID-19 pandemic.
of direct labour productivity gains potentially secured for every £1 invested in Information Management.
of direct productivity gain today (2021) in the design, construction and maintenance of built assets through the sector-wide adoption of Information Management, could potentially translate into £3.70 in annual UK GDP in 2051.
to 18% costs savings at various stages of the asset lifecycle, potentially secured for every £1 invested in Information Management.
real-world case studies were used to provide new qualitative and quantitative evidence of the potential value of Information Management, considering both the direct productivity gains to projects and organisations, as well as wider social value for customers, society and the environment.
