Clarion Housing Group appointed London-based Matterlab as its partner to develop its digital vision.
Matterlab will lead the implementation of some of Clarion’s new digital technologies (including building information management), workflows and tools throughout the housing provider’s operations, starting with its development function.
Clarion is currently developing digital strategies to revolutionise how its customers engage with their properties across those buildings’ lifetimes. The housing provider is placing particular emphasis on the buildings’ initial design stages so that construction and maintenance costs are lower later on in order to achieve long-term revenue growth.
Dave Lee, director of digital design and offsite manufacturing, Clarion Housing Group, said, “We are embarking on a new era of using digital technologies to enhance our products, increase efficiencies and deliver good quality, affordable housing to those failed by the market. We believe that, in Matterlab, we have found the appropriate technology delivery partner to execute our shared innovations with cutting-edge tools and processes.”
