The time has come for the property sector to enter a new phase, and embrace a full-blown digital transition. Bricks and mortar do not exclude data, quite the contrary.
For new builds, the question of data management is already taking shape, particularly in our approaches to BIM, but does the same apply to existing real estate?
Every professional in the real estate value chain (investors, asset managers, development managers, operators, users, etc.) creates data at their own level. If this data is not connected and easily accessible to all parties, it will forever be incomplete, in silos, and duplicated at will. So, how can we provide access to useful information for everyone, at all times, to ensure optimised real estate management?
The Digital Building File is the property’s digital twin, giving all parties in the value chain access to the information they need throughout the lifespan of the building. It makes asset management much easier; this new digital approach to property has paved the way for a plethora of new services, and opened the door to developing the digital value of buildings.
