Cadline has launched a new platform called DynamicAIM, to address a major crisis for building and asset owners, providing the “golden thread” required within the construction and housing industry. DynamicAIM is a first of its kind, all-in-one solution for digitising build details including all BIM, survey and asset information, enabling property owners and managers to securely preserve and access vital information when needed. Local authorities, housing developers, and manufacturing sites are among the first to adopt DynamicAIM, including associations such as Peabody and Wolverhampton Council.
“As our go-to 3D survey and BIM supplier, Cadline’s DynamicAIM helps us digitise our stock and centralise data whilst working towards conforming to the Hackitt report and new government guideline,” said a spokesperson from Peabody.
Asset owners are facing a critical point for building safety as The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has this week revealed new guidance on which types of properties require additional inspections. This means asset owners need to be prepared to hand over vital information at any time, as outlined in the Hackitt report.
Where build details, drawings, measurements, certifications and manuals would traditionally be produced manually and stored separately, the ability to digitally store and view all details in one platform means asset managers are able to more effectively and safely maintain buildings and facilities. DynamicAIM is enabling firms to comply with the Building Safety Bill – which is likely to require a digital version of residential buildings above 18 metres.
“It is a building owner’s responsibility to preserve asset information in order to have the means to appropriately maintain the building and its contents. The failings in this regard are well documented throughout the Grenfell Tower fire inquiry and while property managers struggle to search for historical data that is either outdated, inaccurate, or no longer exists,” added Matt Lees, Head of Engineering at Cadline.
“Now, all asset details from specific measurements right through to large-scale plans can be shared among architects, stakeholders, fire engineers and safety managers in one platform. This has been critical for those addressing immediate safety requirements, and to provide better transparency for stakeholders, tenants and staff.”
DynamicAIM is built on Cadline’s existing, robust DynamicMaps functionality. It has been created as one solution to address demand from existing Cadline clients. DynamicAIM handles big data and enables asset owners and managers to view any element of the building virtually, via 3D model or 360 HD virtual tours. It also has the ability to obtain measurements, making future adjustments, repairs or maintenance much easier and quicker to carry out.
