Our Partners

          The industry is on the cusp of a digital revolution. Where technology has previously been challenging to access or unspecialised, we are embarking into an era of significant investment into technologies for the global construction sector. As a result of this investment, we have seen a ‘boom’ in specifically designed digital tools which help to improve financial visibility, measure sustainability metrics, improve profitability, improve on-site health & safety and increase productivity across the build cycle.

          With the support of Procore, Build UK, RICS and SEKTOR, we have created four distinct papers which focus on different areas of the RIBA asset cycle. Each paper provides a thorough list of technology providers within each section of the asset cycle, a list of industry “trailblazers” which have been independently judged on accessibility and advice for leaders on which products will best suit their organisation’s needs.


          The RIBA design stages are the most widely recognised steps throughout all areas of the asset cycle. Consequently, we have decided to use these as the framework to base our 4 papers. As some technology providers span multiple stages, we have grouped the design stages into 4 critical areas: Briefing and Design (RIBA stages 0-2); Pre-construction (RIBA stages 3-4); Manufacture and Construction (RIBA stage 5); and Operations and Maintenance (RIBA stages 6-7).

          The RIBA Plan of Work organises the process of briefing, designing, constructing and operating building projects into eight stages and explains the stage outcomes, core tasks and information exchanges required at each stage. Guidance in the RIBA Plan of Work is based on nearly seven years of feedback, gathered by the RIBA, from the construction industry. We can therefore confidently use this framework to inform our own EcoSystem.
