CDE Data Standard

The successful management of timely, accurate and complete information based on a set of data standards can affect a project’s outcome. 
A Common Data Environment allows project teams to create, organise and share information to foster collaboration, make timely decisions and take early interventions during the project’s delivery and building maintenance lifecycle. 
Data Standards specify what information is required for a building project and how it can be structured to facilitate sharing and collaboration among project team members using a Common Data Environment.
The Emerging Stronger Taskforce (‘EST’)’s Alliance for Action (‘AfA’) on Digitalising Built Environment has identified these data standards as a key to accelerate digitalisation in the value chain.

Digitalising Built Environment Alliance for Actions (AfA)

The Digitalising Built Environment Alliance for Action (AfA), led by Mr Lim Ming Yan, Chairman of the Singapore Business Federation, was convened in June 2020 under the Emerging Stronger Taskforce (EST) to accelerate digitalisation of our built environment sector, and emerge stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic. The AfA will focus on two work-streams: 
  1. establishing industry-wide CDE Data Standards, and;
  2. securing the commitment of 300 industry firms to adopt interoperable digital platforms based on the established Data Standard.

How to pilot and adopt CDE Data Standards?
