- Collaborative construction delivery methods
- Common glossary of terms
- Common information exchange formats
- Management “buy in”

- Metrics, Benchmarks, standardized and detail cost information – “you can’t manage what you don’t measure”.
Achievement of efficient life-cycle management of the built environment requires a fundamental shift in how the AECOO (Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Operations, Owner) sector conduct business. BIM and Cloud Computing are disruptive technologies that will assist in this “transformation”…which as already begun.. while economic and environmental market drivers will assure the transformation.
