DEFINE, ENRICH, MONITOR, POPULATE.
The way we use room data is changing. Whereas in the past the discipline was not particularly coordinated with BIM, construction management and FM, now it’s better integrated. And where PDF room data sheets were once the expected deliverable, now we are more focused on the value of the information and putting it to good use in other disciplines and applications. New technology is changing how we work in several ways:
Room data is created and managed in cloud based applications, instead of on multiple excel sheets and word documents and provides a central source of information.
Having good room data to drive checklists brings efficiencies to the construction fit-out stage by ensuring all the information is to hand and in one place. And knowing exactly what’s been specified allows us to better monitor progress.
