Glider at Digital Construction Week 2021

Digital Construction Week 2021 Highlights

Digital Construction Week 2021 was monumental for us in many ways. Not just the start of live engagements, but we also launched the new Glider Information Value Chain.

  • Launching the Glider Information Value Chain

The Glider Information Value Chain is a key mechanism that is applied to the whole lifecycle of an asset. From design through to operation, it builds better building performance at every stage of the project. This is 5-step process – Define & Communicate, Collect & Verify, Connect & Share, Analyse & Evaluate and Exploit & Act. Each stage ensures that the flow of information is not only connected, but also creates information that has value.

  • Working with Defence

DCW was also the perfect opportunity to showcase our latest work. In particular, we shared our work with the Ministry and Defence’s (MOD) and Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO).

The (DIO) manages around 1.8% of the UK’s landmass. This includes 115,000 non-residential buildings and 50,000 houses on behalf of the Ministry of Defence. For several months we have been supporting the MOD and DIO in the set-up of a new common data environment through our gliderbim® platform. We invited Jane Dudson, Asset Information Manager at the DIO, to give a presentation on our stand about managing the MOD estate. This presentation drew in quite a crowd, all interested in how this works and what outcomes have been achieved so far.

Post-pandemic success

Over the two days at DCW, it was clear that people wanted to be back at industry events. Engagement was almost back to levels we experienced pre-pandemic. In this new world, building relationships is important now more than ever. And we look forward to 2022 and future live events.
