Blog: Be Inspired! Digital Construction award 2017 (Sponsored by Clearbox)

10 January 2018

Winner: McCarthy & Stone (Datum: Single Source of the Truth)

McCarthy & Stone are unlocking the true potential of BIM. Throughout 2016 they made enormous strides to improve the quality and flow of information throughout their business and supply chain. Partnering with key suppliers and delivering sustainable change has introduced an information management system to a sector of the industry that has been slow to adopt digital construction innovation.

This marks them out as an industry leader who has fully appreciated the benefits of technology and applied them in an innovative way to produce high quality products that their customers are proud to call home.

McCarthy & Stone created ‘Datum’, a digital information system for housing that manages and distributes information as part of a single source of the truth. Part website, database, building information model and digital cost tool they knitted together a series of software and management systems to form one cohesive platform. Datum has been instrumental in driving increased product standardisation throughout the business.

Datum ensures a consistent and repeatable high-quality product whilst helping to increase margins. The process enables teams and partners to work more effectively together throughout a development’s life cycle. This new way of working could revolutionise the efficiency and quality of House Builders, Affordable and Student Housing Providers to name but a few. Potentially it could help to solve the current housing crisis.
