Four reasons why CodeBook is a ‘must’ for any large building project:
Boosts economic viability
Understanding the origins, structure and life of a building is key to its efficient functionality and economic viability. And as the technology of complex buildings becomes more ambitious, environmental sustainability is also becoming non-negotiable. CodeBook captures, stores and allows full interaction with all relevant information across the life cycle of a building, from the initial brief, through feasibility, design, procurement, construction, to long-term operational management.
Links everything to the brief
Going beyond building information modelling (BIM) and COBie, CodeBook starts from the brief (or program). This is a key difference: existing design and modelling software applications do not address what happens inside the building. They store extensive amounts of information, but only once the design has been started. With CodeBook, the brief can be developed from the earliest stages by different team members. The result: one consistent project model — accessible to all in real time.
Validates design changes
A building – say, a hospital, airport terminal, school or office block – can be made complex by permutations of room types, equipment and core services. Apparently simple changes can have a profound impact on overall design and revision time. CodeBook lets designers cascade changes through all design elements. Teams can test ideas based on the original brief, resolving functional problems before committing to building usage definition, procurement and construction.
CodeBook has been trusted by designers, commissioning agencies and building owners and operators worldwide since the 1990s. Interoperable with all leading architectural applications, it has been one of the industry’s best kept secrets.
