Glider shortlisted for two Digital Construction Awards 

Glider’s hard work recognised with two award shortlistings

The Digital Construction Awards celebrate the most pioneering projects, teams and individuals championing innovation and technology in the built environment.

Digital Consultancy of the Year Award

The first Glider shortlisting is for the prestigious ‘Digital Consultancy of the Year’ category. This category recognises those that have demonstrated excellence and helped their clients transform their businesses or projects through the adoption of digital processes and technologies.

22 Bishopsgate is a commercial office building that dominates the London skyline at 278m tall. Glider was engaged to support the management and maintenance of all related asset information for this tenanted building. Our comprehensive digitally driven Information Management Service facilitates communication between building operators, tenants, fit-out contractors and delivery teams. This helps to streamline information deliverables and clarifies stakeholder responsibilities. Combined with our gliderbim® platform as the AIM CDE (Asset Information Management Common Data Environment), our innovative approach to managing complex asset information into operations demonstrates our commitment to quality and excellence.

Digital Innovation in Asset Management Award

The second shortlisting is for our role in the Ministry of Justice’s digital twin pathfinder project in the ‘Digital Innovation in Asset Management’ category. This award champions projects that have significantly improved operational efficiency of an asset to be more sustainable.

We collaborated on this innovative project alongside Kier Construction and Future Decisions. Together we’re creating a digital twin of a single houseblock at HMP Five Wells, to gauge energy performance gains if extended across the prison campus and wider estate. This is the first digital twin to be successfully completed for the public sector estate and will allow operators to monitor and assess performance throughout its lifecycle using real-time data.

Industry recognition

Being shortlisted for these two categories is a tremendous honour. It reaffirms our position as a leader in the digital transformation in the construction sector. It acknowledges the hard work and expertise of our talented team, whose innovative solutions and forward-thinking approach have consistently pushed the boundaries of what is possible in digital construction and information management.

From design to completion and into operation, we provide unparalleled software and digital consultancy services that empower our clients to navigate the complexities of modern construction with confidence and clarity.

Stay tuned

Win or lose, being shortlisted alongside the other outstanding companies is a milestone achievement! It motivates us to keep innovating and setting new standards of excellence in information management.

Stay tuned for updates as we eagerly await the results of the Digital Construction Awards ceremony, which takes place in London on 2 July 2024.
