Centre for Digital Built Britain

 

Local authorities have varied responsibilities and populations, but all are grappling with increasing budget pressures -not least due to the Covid-19 relief and recovery. Given their significant estates, approaching the planning and operation of an authority’s assets through a data-led approach could have a significantly positive impact with every 1% efficiency on capital delivery yielding estimated savings of around £250m across the sector. The Construction Innovation Hub’s new film provides an introduction to the benefits for local authorities of taking a digital approach to designing, building and operating buildings and estate. This topic will be covered in more depth in this webinar designed to inspire senior leaders, councillors and property and estates teams in the local authority sector.

Speakers:

  • Terry Stocks, Chair of the Construction Innovation Hub’s Local Authority Working Group shares how the group can assist local councils to realise the benefits of a digital approach to managing their estate and asset information. He will introduce the new BIM Early Steps Roadmap and Toolkit for local authorities which is designed to guide local authority property teams through the steps to using existing software to develop a ‘light touch’ proof of concept first stage.
  • Charlotte Cordingley MRICS APAEWE, is the Head of Estate and Asset Management at Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council with responsibility for bringing together a range of services that collectively support the council’s estate.
  • Stuart D-Henin, Head of Construction Service for Crown Commercial Service, will provide more information about how Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) Construction Frameworks can enable public sector organisations and their arm’s-length bodies to access new and innovative solutions.
  • David Philp, the Construction Innovation Hub’s Digital Impact Director, introduces the new Government Soft Landings (GSL) navigator tool designed especially for local authorities looking to take the next step in their digital journey.
