The Construction Industry Council (CIC) is the representative forum for the professional bodies, research organisations and specialist business associations in the construction industry.

CIC Digital Strategy Board

A CIC Digital Strategy Group was established to consider how best to engage with members on a variety of digital topics. It was acknowledged that the rate of change likely in the future will require a constant and consistent approach to communicating how new tools are being embraced, adopted and rolled out. It was muted that a series of Guidance Notes might be the best way of disseminating emerging best practice and knowledge. For example, these guides might cover:

  • Point Cloud surveys: How they add value and how to specify requirements
  • How the use of handheld devices is transforming the construction site
  • The use of modern survey techniques to generate real-time as-built

The Digital Strategy Group is to be formed to develop and discuss these ideas and to consider the best way to take them forward.
