At the heart of these problems, she says, is a lack of common, inter-operable, global standards for classification, identification and property definitions which adds up to poor quality data for products and materials leading to construction challenges.
Digitalisation sharpens competitive advantage
“For the construction industry to increase its level of efficiency it has to improve its processes and supply chains,” says Magdalena. “Moving towards the digitalisation of these activities and processes is the first important step towards creating the inter-operability and mutual level of transparency required by new BIM standards and upcoming regulations for public procurement.”
Magdalena also highlights the importance of digitalisation to sharpen companies’ competitive edge.
“Construction trends clearly demonstrate that organisations with a strategic focus on modern technologies such as BIM are making better and faster decisions than their competitors, which is delivering to their revenues and profits.
“It is essential that everyone in the building supply chain takes a systematic and data-driven approach to product specification to accelerate this process.
“At Knauf Insulation we working to increase awareness of the advantages of digitalisation as well as introduce the tools and accessibility that specifiers need to maximise its potential.
“Our BIM Factory one-stop site for flat-roof systems is an important step forward in this process and I hope specifiers make the most of the advantages it gives them.”
