Cloud for Co-ordination

The C4C project aims to address some of the core challenges arising for the construction industry from the increasingly widespread adoption of computerised Building Information Modelling (BIM)

The C4C project addresses the issue of BIM “Ownership” by adopting the approach that each party involved creates and stores (and is responsible for) their own BIM information themselves, rather than ‘uploading’ it to a central BIM dataset. In essence, each party stores their data on either their own business computer servers, or their choice of extranet and/or ‘Cloud’ storage in accordance with their own business requirements and protocols.

In essence, C4C will allow a complete BIM dataset to be visualised, sourced from the information stored in the multiple locations (‘Clouds’), without changing how or where the original source material is kept, or who is responsible for that data.
