The category for Best Use of Tech in Property looks for companies who are embracing, investing, and creating new technologies to improve efficiency, speed up production and bring sector-wide benefits.
With a bold vision for organising the world’s building information to enable the creation of more efficient environments for everyone, Operance is fusing award-winning industry building information modelling expertise with ground-breaking technology.
“We’ve been developing our own pioneering software to define, curate, audit and maintain building operations and maintenance (O&M) information,” says Scott Pilgrim, Chief Product Officer at Operance.
“Our vision to create a digital ‘golden thread’ of lifecycle information is completely aligned to that of new building and fire safety legislation aimed at preventing another disaster like Grenfell, it’s imperative leading industry professionals come together in this way to drive fundamental and lasting change.”
Operance’s new information management platform, Operance O&M, is a purpose-built desktop application designed to help estates teams, developers and operators request operations and maintenance information to help manage new facilities and assets. It enables designers, contractors and project managers to semi-automate the coordination and checking of the data, making it easier to hand over. End-users can then search, share, edit and update the information from the palm of their hand thanks to their Operance FM mobile application.
The solution provides an immutable ‘quantum ledger’, built on blockchain technology, to produce a secure lifecycle record of high-quality building safety and asset information, the ‘golden thread’.
Operance’s Digital Transformation Lead, Tom Oulton, one of the country’s leading BIM professionals said: “We’re on the cusp of revolutionary change to the design, construction and management of our built environment.
“Following Grenfell, we must take this opportunity to work collectively to ensure it’s never repeated. This is a chance to affect change that we must not let pass us by.”
“The whole team is thrilled to be shortlisted for Best Use of Tech in Property by Insider Yorkshire,” Scott adds.
“We can’t wait to celebrate with all those shortlisted across the various categories in September, they are some of the most exciting property companies in our region.”
Insider Yorkshire Property Industry Awards 2021 takes place on Thursday 30 September 2021 at New Dock Hall, Leeds.
