Createmaster has launched its Golden Thread: Gateway 3 solution. Underpinned by the Zutec platform, the solution combines Createmaster’s digital handover service with a dashboard for contractors and developers.
Gateway 3 refers to the completion or final certificate stage (equivalent to RIBA stage 6) when a building safety case is submitted for review and approval. As a stop/go point in the handover process, building control approval must be obtained from the Building Safety Regulator (BSR) before registering and commencing occupation of a higher-risk residential building (HRRB).
The Createmaster dashboard gives contractors and developers real-time visibility to manage all of their building information deliverables in a single place. Users can quickly see what information and documents they have, what is expected, what is in progress and what has been validated for compliance.
James Cannon, commercial director, Createmaster, said, “At the moment, the handover information needed by contractors is likely to be captured across multiple formats, systems and platforms, including the contractors and subcontractors’ own CDE or quality management systems. While these systems are widely used for construction project data, they don’t offer a single, consolidated dataset for handover to clients and the regulator.
“As a single source of truth for digital building information, our solution provides a clear mechanism for collating the evidence needed to support building safety cases, and helps contractors ensure regulatory-compliant building information and manuals are handed over to a client.”
