Bond Bryan Digital, the award-winning consultancy, is being combined with its sister company Createmaster, creating a new business known as Createmaster Information Management.
Bond Bryan Digital was bought by BuildData Group in January 2022. This summer it won Digital Consultancy of the Year at the Digital Construction Awards 2023. BuildData owns digital handover specialist Createmaster and construction management software supplier Zutec.
The development of Createmaster Information Management will “improve the way building information is specified, delivered and managed across the whole life of an asset”, according to BuildData.
The core services offered to customers won’t change.
BuildData said the move is part of a longer-term goal to “provide better connected and structured data to customers, with a consistent digital language as the industry moves towards a golden thread of information”.
Gustave Geisendorf, chief executive at BuildData, added: “With both brands being credible market leaders, bringing Bond Bryan Digital into the Createmaster fold makes sense at a time when building information management is in the spotlight.
“New and updated standards and regulations, such as the Building Safety Act, put an emphasis on digitised building information, which is not only accessible, but accurate, discoverable and understandable. Therefore, having connected data is critical.
“Not only can we enhance the work we do for our customers, [we can] also respond to the changing regulatory landscape and built environment requirements faster. By creating simpler paths to navigate data and the digital ecosystem, we can develop a clear purpose-driven data approach that seamlessly integrates information and delivers more stakeholder trust. This will meet market requirements for a true golden thread of information, supporting compliance that leads to better building outcomes.”
