”Probably the best beer in the world”

The Carlsberg Group Real Estate department have decided to digitise important areas of the maintenance of their building portfolio. The implementation starts with a pilot project to test and verify future processes before the full implementation of MainManager early 2018, and an expected BIM-import of Carlsberg’s new HQ by early 2020.

MainManager has been chosen to deliver the new digital processes for preventive and reactive maintenance at Carlsberg, and a comprehensive space management module has been added to the solution for the 63.000 m2 of office and warehouse facilities in Copenhagen. Carlsberg is updating and digitising all drawings before they are uploaded to MainManager in the early autumn of 2017.

During the implementation process all employees will be key stakeholders and major contributors to the changes and new processes to be implemented at Carlsberg.  Here at MainManager we are extremely proud to be included in these changes.

Finn Chabert, Real Estate Manager, explains: “In the evaluation of the different IWMS-solutions in the market, it was important that the digitisation of our workspace should make the daily execution of our work much smarter and more agile. We believe that MainManager supports simplicity and that they understand how to make the processes tangible and easy to understand for our employees and colleagues.  Long term, we are also very excited to see how the build of data in MainManager will support informed/smart decision-making in the future.”

EPD and BIM – MainManager shows the way

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has initiated an international project with the goal to make Environmental Product Declaration(EPD) data available through Building Information Modeling (BIM).

The project will be based on a joint case study conducted by MainManager in close co-operation with Standard Norway, Standard Danmark, Catenda (Norway), Framkvæmdasýslan (Iceland) and Statsbygg (Norway).

At the ISO commitee meeting for constuction (ISO/TC 59) on October 9th, the decision was made to launch a new international standardization project to make EPD data available in BIM.

An EPD is a concise document which summarizes the environmental profile of a component, a finished product or a service in a standardized manner.

The case study work was made possible by a grant from the Nordic Innovation fund. The group worked diligently for two years on theoretical proposals on how future standards can comply to the digital world within the building industry.

A particular standard was used as a pilot and our findings are now being used as a foundation for the new ISO standard by the ISO commitee.

We are really looking forward participating in the project ahead. Watch the video and learn more about the project.
