Cadline’s DynamicAIM asset management software now supports the ‘golden thread’ outlined in the Hackitt report.
DynamicAIM is an all-in-one solution for digitising building details including all BIM, survey and asset information, enabling property owners and managers to securely preserve and access vital information when needed. Wolverhampton Council and Peabody Group are two early adopters of the Cadline software.
A spokesperson for Peabody Group said, “As our main 3D survey and BIM supplier, Cadline’s DynamicAIM helps us to digitise our stock and centralise data while working towards conforming to the Hackitt report’s recommendations and new guidelines from the government.”
In contrast with the traditional manual and often geographically-dispersed storage of property details, the ability to digitally store and view all details on a single digital platform means asset managers can maintain buildings and facilities more effectively and safely. Furthermore, DynamicAIM is enabling organisations to comply with the Building Safety Bill, which is likely to require a digital version of any residential buildings above 18 metres high.
Matt Lees, head of engineering, Cadline, said, “It’s 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 were well documented throughout the Grenfell Tower inquiry.
“Now, all asset details, from specific measurements through to large-scale plans, can be shared among architects, fire engineers, safety managers and other stakeholders on one platform. This is so important for those people responsible for addressing immediate safety requirements and to provide better transparency for tenants and staff.”
DynamicAIM is built on Cadline’s existing DynamicMaps software. DynamicAIM handles big data and enables asset owners to view any element of a building virtually via 3D models or 360-degree virtual tours. The software can also obtain measurements, making future adjustments, repairs or maintenance easier and faster.
