Digital Compliance Platform for the Built Environment.

Company:

PROCESS INNOVATION FORUM LTD, AEC3 UK LIMITED, Highways England, PASSIVSYSTEMS LIMITED, SERO ENERGY LIMITED, SOLIBRI UK LTD

The project has been developed and will be delivered by the **Digital Compliance (D-COM)** network (inaugurated through the Centre for Digital Built
Britain), who completed in-depth research that proved there was a clear appetite for the digitisation and automation of regulation and requirement checking.
It also builds upon the concerns raised in the Hackitt review on the Grenfell Tower disaster on regulatory responsibility and the departures from ongoing
compliance and monitoring that have become are a systemic problem in the construction industry.
This project will develop, and then demonstrate an open platform-based approach to the digitisation of compliance process in the construction sector. This
platform will integrate the currently limited software vendor adoption together with the scattered development of ad-hoc approaches, into a cohesive
ecosystem enabling the widespread adoption of digitised compliance processes across the construction industry.
This much-needed development and digitisation of compliance processes brings advantages of increased accuracy, improved productivity, and reduction in
costs. This digitisation of compliance processes leads to a vision where continual assessment of a built assets compliance against requirements is
automatically undertaken throughout its lifecycle. Providing for a systematic management of built assets with strong compliance processes, accountability
and digitised record keeping and change control.
This will be achieved through the development of open standards for digitising regulatory/requirement clauses, along with standardised APIs to
retrieve/modify and manage and execute checking processes based on these digitised clauses. A demonstration prototype will be constructed and current
state of the art software currently in use will be modified to support the new draft standards.
These developments will be demonstrated in several example projects across a variety of case studies from multiple domains in the construction sector I.e.
buildings and infrastructure. These demonstrations will allow both the technical feasibility as well as the productivity benefits and commercial potential to be
proven. The standards developed in this project will be released publicly as draft standards, enabling a wide range of construction industry stakeholders to
benefit, bringing the UK to the verge of the mass adoption of automated compliance processes
