The housing association provides more than 21,000 affordable homes predominantly across London and Hertfordshire.
Glider will review and uplift the current suite of BIM documents that Network Homes is using. This includes its Asset Information Requirements, Exchange Information Requirements and Project Information Requirements. COBie templates, Spatial Hierarchy and BIM capability and capacity assessments are also in scope.
Glider will also work closely with the digital and building information management team at Network Homes to ensure the refreshed documents are understood, accepted and rolled into future projects and contract documentation.
It will incorporate holistic requirements for development, operation, planned and reactive maintenance and compliance with relevant regulations, including the Fire Safety Regulations 2022 and Building Safety Act 2022. Glider will tailor all the documents to the housing association’s individual processes.
According to Glider, this project is similar in scope to the work it has carried out for Clarion Housing Group.
Stuart Bell, director of sales and marketing at Glider, said: “We have experience of working with housing associations. We will use this knowledge to review and refine Network Homes’ specific asset information needs.
“Glider’s information management support will strengthen the housing association’s organisational, exchange and asset information requirements and ensure that the required BIM documents to procure built asset information from their key suppliers provide downstream dividends to their operational teams.”
