Working with the defence sector requires stringent processes, rigorous standards and unequivocal support for information security requirements. Our gliderbim® information management software enables support for projects with heightened information security needs, and/or where data sovereignty is required. The Glider team has a vast experience of working on highly regulated and complex construction projects as well as working directly for the Ministry of Defence (MoD), Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), Defence & Science Technology Laboratories (DSTL), Ministry of Justice (MoJ), British Antarctic Surveys (BAS), as well as a number of global banks and high tech organisations.
Glider supports major asset owners and their connected supply chains in the defence sector. We ensure your information needs are clearly defined, and asset data is securely managed across the entire asset lifecycle. By combining our expert consultancy and information management services with our powerful gliderbim® platform, you’ll quickly be able to realise maximum value from your projects, assets and wider estate.
We support secure, open and interoperable working which is why gliderbim® can be a foundational component of a broader systems landscape. To drive reliability in the analysis and exploitation of asset data, we have developed a Reference Data Library, and within it, a Common Data Model. These ensure consistency in data creation and capture, and standards adoption (e.g. ISO 19650, Uniclass, SFG20) across all design, construction and FM operations.
The demand for smart buildings and digital twins continues to rapidly increase. Both are underpinned and powered by quality, verified and validated asset information. Our team of experts can help you to define your information needs. Then through our software platform gliderbim®, and its RESTful API, ensure this is collected, validated and integrated with data from various sources (BMS, IoT sensors, CaFM), to allow you to create the foundations for a digital twin of your built assets.
“The team at Glider has designed and built us a flexible, scalable Common Data Environment platform to support the effective management of our asset information, which will provide an improvement in organisational performance and efficiency, reduction in costs, and will enable the organisation to provide a platform for greater exploitation of data to shape delivery across Defence assets. Improved use of the information will provide higher levels of assurance internally and externally and will supply the groundwork for evidence-based decision making across our complex organisation.”
Deputy Head of Asset Information Management
Designing, implementing and embedding a secure AIM CDE platform for the DIO
Through our work on the DIO AIM CDE project, and related information management initiatives, we have a deep understanding of the MoD information requirements. We can help you to interpret these, how to respond (pre and post-contract) and importantly how to securely deliver quality, validated structured document and data deliverables.
Capturing and validating data and documentation from multiple trade contractors and suppliers on projects is an ongoing challenge for many main contractors. Our services help to radically improve the speed and quality of digital delivery, ensuring on-time, on-budget and quality handover documentation on practical completion.
gliderbim® is an intelligent online platform for managing project information, asset data validation and handover. It provides contractors and AEC professionals with the necessary tools to manage the production, approval and delivery of all project and asset information.
Our work with DIO, MoJ and leading banks and high tech organisations means we take cyber security very seriously. We are certified to ISO 27001, Cyber Essentials Plus and we are also MoD CyDR certified. These standards, coupled with our UK CDE deployment, and ability to deliver on-premise, allow us to meet the UK data sovereign requirements for projects up to the classification of Official Sensitive.
We are also approved by the gov.uk digital marketplace for software and services.
