Embrace the Future of Construction: Review Your Workflows with Symetri
As we step into January 2024, it’s time to reflect on the announcements by Ministers Donohoe and Smyth regarding contract reforms, which come into effect this month, and how they impact on the National Development Plan (NDP). This marks a crucial juncture for you to reassess your workflows and embrace the digital transformation in construction.
Why Review Your Workflows Now?
Sustainability and BIM Integration: The NDP reforms are putting a spotlight on sustainability and Building Information Modelling (BIM). Understanding and incorporating these aspects into your projects is not just about compliance, but a pathway to enhanced efficiency.
Efficiency in Resource Utilisation: With the increased focus on reducing environmental impact and boosting productivity, a review of your workflows becomes a strategic move to identify areas for improvement.
Embodied Carbon Measurement: The NDP's push towards measuring and reporting embodied carbon demands a fresh approach to design and specification, and this is where Symetri steps in with its expertise.
Gaining a Competitive Edge: Early adoption of these practices positions your organisation as a leader and innovator.
Strategic Planning for 2030: Aligning with the vision of digitalisation for the construction sector by 2030 is not just beneficial, it’s crucial for your long-term success.
The Role of BIM in the NDP Reforms
BIM has become mandatory for public works contracts as of January 2024. Starting with projects of over €100 million, it will gradually extend to projects of €1 million and less, over the next four years. BIM's data handling capabilities play a crucial role in measuring embodied carbon and driving efficiencies in construction projects. For further information you can read the full mandate here.
