Results from an industry consultation about standardising product data are expected to be shared imminently. The views from all stakeholders involved with construction products were sought on a critical project being developed by the Construction Innovation Hub (the Hub) and the Construction Products Association (CPA).
The LEXiCON project is set to revolutionise data management in the construction industry to deliver increased productivity, sustainability and safety. It will standardise construction product data-sharing on projects, allowing construction professionals to better use product information to optimise designs and improve digital records.
Keith Waller, Hub programme director said the LEXiCON project will develop best practice for the creation and management of product data, which will ensure construction professionals better use product information to optimise designs and improve digital records. The consultation on the processes LEXiCON advocates will ensure we develop consensus with the construction industry and wider stakeholders.”
The GAI was involved in the LEXiCON Working Group who prepared the document for consultation.
The consultation results will be published imminently and LEXiCON proof of concept demonstrator and early adopters programme will be launched in November.
AIJ will report on further developments.
