Creating Hackitt’s Golden Thread for Asset Management
As investigations into the causes of the Grenfell Towers catastrophe progressed, everyone seemed amazed that no one involved in refurbishing or managing the building knew all the products and materials that had been installed. In today’s modern digital built environment this is a shocking fact. For many years, as an industry we have been struggling to produce adequate handover information and just as important when it does exist, it is not updated as things are replaced.

b) their specification, how were they expected to perform and, if swapped out, that change recorded.
c) a fully coordinated asset information model that can populate any FM applications.
