AJ Digital offers a comprehensive package of information management services designed to streamline information flow and optimise project delivery, to ensure the smooth operation of our client’s assets.

Information management encompasses all the processes and practices associated with creating, collecting, storing and disseminating information throughout a building’s lifecycle and without such a well-defined approach, data can become siloed, fragmented and – in a worst-case scenario – ultimately unusable.

This is why we believe in fostering a collaborative environment where all project stakeholders – architects, engineers, contractors and facility managers – have access to all the information they need – when they need it.

We achieve this by creating a:

  • Common data environment (CDE): This is a centralised hub for all project information. This secure, cloud-based platform ensures everyone has access to the latest approved documents, models and data, eliminating information silos and promoting transparency.
  • Structured approach: Establishing clear processes for information creation, submission. AJ Digital helps clients develop a robust information management strategy aligned with industry standards like BIM (Building Information Modelling).

COBie – bridging the gap

Good information management also applies to the successful handover of a building from construction to operation, which involves COBie (Construction Operations Building Information Exchange). This acts as a bridge, facilitating the smooth transfer of essential asset data. This standardised format ensures that valuable information about building components, warranties and maintenance requirements is readily available to facility managers, to help deliver an efficient operation for years to come.

Our service includes:

  • COBie data validation: Ensuring the accuracy and completeness of COBie data is essential. Our team meticulously validates data against the as-built conditions, guaranteeing reliable information for facility management.
  • Project-specific model auditing: We tailor our auditing services to each specific project requirement and schedule. This proactive approach identifies and addresses information gaps early on, preventing issues during handover and operation.

Interactive tools and reporting

Effective information management is not just about data storage. AJ Digital equips clients with the tools they need to make informed decisions. We provide:

  • Interactive Dashboards: To gain real-time insights into a project’s information flow. These interactive dashboards highlight potential bottlenecks and areas requiring additional attention.
  • Comprehensive Audit Reports: Our detailed reports provide a clear picture of information management progress at each project stage. This allows for continuous improvement and ensures all data is captured and managed effectively.

Bespoke Solutions for seamless integration

We understand that every project is unique, which is why AJ Digital offers a range of information management solutions, including:

  • Out-of-the-Box Solutions: For a quick and efficient implementation, we offer proven information management processes that can be readily integrated into every project workflow.
  • Bespoke Solutions: If you already have established information management practices, we can tailor our services to seamlessly complement your existing systems, ensuring a smooth transition.

  • Enhanced collaboration: A transparent information environment fosters effective communication and collaboration between all project stakeholders.
  • Reduced rework: Early identification and correction of information gaps minimise costly rework on-site and during handover.
  • Optimised facility management: Accurate and accessible COBie data empowers facility managers to make informed decisions regarding maintenance, repairs and asset lifecycle management.
