THE
WORLD’s first cloud based COBie-compliant
building asset database software will today be unveiled by
developer eRDS Solutions
and Services.

The
innovative new software, eRDS Cloud,
enables construction industry professionals to better manage and handover
detailed information of thousands of building assets.

The
software will support operations, maintenance and asset management once a built
project is in service.

eRDS Cloud
combines assets defined in Revit BIM models with furniture,
fixtures and equipment and
room data and enriches them with COBie information
including manufacturer, serial numbers and warranty details.

Building
assets are stored in a SQL database in eRDS Cloud
which provides a multi-user collaborative common data environment conforming to
ISO 19650-1:2018.

By
establishing a structured COBie database
at an early stage of a project, the asset information in eRDS Cloud
becomes the single point of truth which is used to populate other project IT
software.

As
a result, users obtain faster and better integration with BMS and BIM-FM systems
and a shortened CMMS implementation programme.

Paul
Goodman-Simpson, eRDS Solutions
and Services Chief Executive Officer, said: “It is becoming more commonplace
for COBie to
be used as the contractual means of handover on government and commercial
projects using BIM, yet the software to deliver this hasn’t progressed past
excel spreadsheets.

“We
believe significant cost and man-hour savings are possible when the large
amounts of asset information required by COBie are
handled in a searchable cloud database. More visible and reliable information
results in improved briefings of subcontractors and leads to better management
decisions.

“An eRDS Cloud
database can be interrogated by construction teams, building owners, estate
managers and their FM teams. With this approach considerable time savings are
achieved by increasing the efficiency of the management of project from start to
finish and post construction.”
