Building and Maintaining a Digital Estate — From Zero to Hero: Establishing the structures, content and supply chain delivery approaches to support better decisions on asset optimisation

Like most large asset owners, Sainsbury’s need to answer questions easily about their estate every day. This is why the one of the UK’s largest retailers has been working with GroupBC to create a ‘Digital Estate’ – a globally accessible, secure web portal, to manage, update and query spatially-located asset information, supporting those making decisions during the asset lifecycle. That this digital estate is created, not from 3D models but from existing 2D drawings, is what makes this BIM solution truly inspiring.

Our guest speaker Michael Barber, System Development Manager for Sainsbury’s, will discuss the challenges Sainsbury’s faced as the retail environment has changed over the past few years, and how they needed to ‘sweat their assets’ as the focus moved from new build.

Attend this webinar to understand:

  • Unlock insights from your assets allowing you to answer questions about your estate and speed up your decision making
  • Make the most of legacy data and systems without having to commission costly revisions and replacements that could cause confusion
  • How to gain greater business value from your existing assets or estate by connecting your model with other data sources

Who should attend:

Suitable for Innovation Directors, Information Managers, Business leaders, business Improvement Directors, Project and Estate managers/directors looking to improve business process efficiencies, project collaboration, accelerate project delivery, optimise asset utilisation and mitigate the risks of loss of information whether in the retail, property, utilities, infrastructure, government, public or private sectors.
