«Dig­i­ti­za­tion of con­struc­tion will al­low us to en­sure trans­parency, term and bud­get con­trol, as well as ef­fi­ciency. Any de­lays could cost Latvia’s con­struc­tion in­dus­try’s de­vel­op­ment and in­ter­na­tional com­pet­i­tive­ness,» said State Real Es­tate board mem­ber Ki­tija Gruške­vica at Con­struc­tion 2018 con­fer­ence Wed­nes­day, 21 Novem­ber.

Gruške­vica said as the largest state con­struc­tion client, SRE is wellaware of its im­por­tance for the in­dus­try’s dig­i­ti­za­tion. The com­pany al­ready ac­tively works to grad­u­ally im­ple­ment the re­quire­ment to use Con­struc­tion In­for­ma­tion Mod­el­ing so­lu­tions from mid-2019 on­ward.

«It should be added that this in­dus­try’s dig­i­ti­za­tion is top­i­cal not only in Latvia but also in­ter­na­tion­ally. CIM has be­come some­thing of a stan­dard – its most ac­tive users are found in Nether­lands, UK and Scan­di­navia,» SRE notes.

She also stressed that SRE wants to start us­ing CIM so­lu­tions to their full ex­tent in the fu­ture. Not just for de­vel­op­ment of con­struc­tion projects and con­struc­tion pro­cesses, but also time and bud­get plan­ning, as well as en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and gov­er­nance.

To as­sess suc­cess­ful CIM im­ple­men­ta­tion mod­els, SRE of­fi­cials to­gether with Riga Con­struc­tion Of­fice rep­re­sen­ta­tives vis­ited Dan­ish and Nor­we­gian state real es­tate man­age­ment com­pa­nies.
