Client Success Story

Coventry University

Estate Information Management

The origins of Coventry University can be traced back to the founding of the Coventry School of Design in 1843. Today, Coventry University is internationally recognised for its expertise in health, peacebuilding and agroecology, engineering and design.

Coventry University

The Coventry University campus spans 148 existing buildings and an ambitious £2bn programme of new developments is in the pipeline.

For the management of this extensive estate, the University selected gliderbim® as its estate-wide common data environment (CDE) software to manage all building information for their existing estate and the planned development of new buildings and infrastructure.

The gliderbim® CDE software is now used as the central repository for asset information and will be integrated into the University’s CAFM software, Planon, and BMS software by Siemens. gliderbim® was selected as the preferred solution against the world’s leading CDE vendors.
