Life Cycle Data Management (LCDM)

Optimise real estate operations with Life Cycle Data Management (LCDM) and lay the foundation for automating building operations processes

A holistic view of the real estate lifecycle, a target-oriented data strategy and digital ordering skills are crucial for the target-oriented integration and automation of building data in real estate operations. We ensure the seamless aggregation, analysis and application of your data throughout the entire lifecycle.

Our Services

  • Identification of the relevant processes and roles
  • Formulation of data requirements for building operations (e.g. based on ProLeMo, GEFMA, etc.)
  • Development of Data Strategies across the entire real estate life cycle
  • Development of Data Governance and BIMtoFM-Strategies
  • Selection and implementation of a suitable Common Data Environment (CDE)
  • Implementation of a project database
  • Development of BIM standards and processes
  • Design of IoT solutions for Smart Offices
  • Development of Low Code Apps to support data collection
  • Development of concepts for data mutation
  • Ensuring the information flow of relevant data from project planning to operation

The development and maintenance of modern data structures and organisations will become a key factor for the construction and real estate industry in the networked, sustainable world of tomorrow. Because data is the key to a better environmental balance: only if we collect values in a targeted manner, record them in a standardised manner and report them in a structured manner, can we assess multi-year comparisons, check legal requirements in the first place and improve insufficient data quality. The prerequisites for this are data management at the organisational level and Life Cycle Data Management (LCDM) at the property level.

The cross-project LCDM comprises all necessary processes, measures and procedures with the aim of ensuring the structuring, recording, management and quality assurance of property-specific data over the entire life cycle and always providing consistent, accurate and up-to-date data to all roles involved. LCDM is not a one-off event, but an ongoing process over the entire life cycle of an object. BIM is used as a tool for data acquisition, consolidation and storage, and also for structuring, communication and collaboration.

LCDM lays the foundation for end-to-end sustainability management and for process automation in real estate operations. It thus plays a supporting role for portfolio owners and managers in particular: only the ongoing analysis, interpretation and documentation of creation, development and consumer data in building operations enable transparent decision-making processes that can still be traced years later in the event of further optimisation measures, legal regulations or personnel departures.

Common Data Environments (CDE)

We support you in integrating digital requirements into your construction projects or your real estate portfolio by defining the necessary data for the utilisation and management phase with you and creating the corresponding ordering, testing and acceptance documents. We also define the functional scope of a suitable Common Data Environment (CDE) and support you in the selection and evaluation of the appropriate solution. Data from BIM models are prepared in such a way that they can be read directly into your CAFM, ERP or management software. With a Building Information Dashboard, we also visualise the qualitative status of your data.

Agile Design Management

Agile design management is a project management approach from software development and aims to integrate flexibility and agility into the work process. For this purpose, tasks are divided into short iterations, so-called "sprints". Within a sprint, a certain number of functions or requirements are developed, tested and validated before the process moves on to the next iteration. In this way, for example, mandatory and requirement specifications, but also design concepts can be adapted more quickly to changing needs.

The construction industry can thus react better to changing framework conditions or changing user requirements and integrate them more easily into planning and execution than is the case with classic project phases. Agile planning methods can therefore be used to integrate technological developments or new regulatory requirements into planning without conflict, for example.
