What to expect during the event
Alan's presentation will focus on an overview of international examples of information management frameworks in construction, with a particular focus on frameworks designed to manage information over the whole life cycle of a built asset using building information modelling. This work forms part of the deliverables for the Digital Procurement pillar on the Build Digital Project and will help inform the early development of a national Information Management framework in Ireland which will require wider stakeholder throughout the 5-year lifetime of the Build Digital Project (2021-2025). While the presentation will broadly focus on the experiences in the UK, Scandinavia and Australasia, there will be specific reference to important developments across the EU and other regions in the world.
