Assessment and need and Information Management for RIBA Stages 1 to 3 until main contractor appointment. Also support was provided for clash detection with issue management and data delivery for Bond Bryan Architects architectural model.


Service: Bond Bryan Digital were employed by Nottingham College to develop the Employer’s Information Requirements (EIR) and Asset Information Requirements (AIR). These resources were developed with the Facilities Management teams of both Nottingham City College and Nottingham Central College who were merging to form Nottingham College.


The resources were fully developed around open standards which was imperative given the variety of authoring tools which the employed consultants intended to utilise.


The project was challenging: to bring together information from three different authoring tools and create one consistent output. In particular, this involved working with the designers to develop robust processes for information exchange and address interoperability issues.


Bond Bryan Digital also provided and managed a Common Data Environment (CDE) using Asite, which has workflows and gateways aligned with the requirements of BS1192:2007+A2:2016.

“Our experience of working with Bond Bryan Digital has been very positive and they have used a ‘jargon-free’ approach to discussing our requirements. As well as completing a detailed audit of our resources, Bond Bryan Digital led a series of ‘discovery’ workshops with a range of stakeholders from across the organisation and synthesised this into an accessible, yet detailed, report on our organisational maturity compared to ISO19650 standards for Information Management.”
