A North East-based risk management company is partnering with Northumbria University to develop a new digital approach to building information systems.
Construction sector safety specialist Lucion Services is partnering with Northumbria University to develop the new NexGen app to directly connect building plans and drawings with data from asbestos surveys and laboratory analysis information.
Lucion Services has seconded developer Alexei Holgate to work on the project, providing a new and technically advanced way of completing safety and risk management assessments in buildings.
The new software will present users with a 3D image of a building, including floor by floor and room by room representations, allowing users and surveyors to flag-up the presence of asbestos or other safety hazards more accurately and efficiently.
The new app design aims to reduce human error, eliminating the risk of mistakes made with traditional paper-based plans and subsequent problems associated with the inspection of buildings.
