One of Idun’s founders Erik Wallin is presenting at BuildingSmart in Oslo, on the 5th of March. BuildingSmart is Norway’s open BIM association, which is a neutral arena for innovation and digitization of the building, construction, and real estate industries. 

BuildingSmart recommends all solutions to be based on open standards to achieve user-driven development in free competition. To enable the free flow of information during the life of a building, and effective interaction between all actors. 

Erik Wallin, one of the founders of RealEstateCore and Idun Real Estate Solutions will be discussing the common language that makes buildings understand each other and unlocking the potential of a real estate portfolio based on open standards.

Like many other industries, the construction industry faces major challenges in an increasingly competitive market. To meet these challenges, it will be crucial to increase companies’ competitiveness through increased efficiency, flexibility and product quality. This requires good internal IT management tools, as well as national and international standards, which are the basis for improved information and transaction flows.

At the same time, new requirements for less energy use in buildings are coming, the material consumption is being tightened and environmental requirements are being increased. Much of the information we share and communicate in the construction process is via paper or static documents, (word, pdf, etc.). To meet tomorrow’s demands, we must have a more information-centric approach. To get there, we need to work with digital building information models and increase the use of data interaction. 

RealEstateCore is a common language that will enable control over buildings and the development of new services – the facilitator of the promises of a digital transformation. RealEstateCore is a domain ontology preparing buildings to interact with the Smart City.
