Fire & The Golden Thread
Virtual Event | 12th November 2020 9:00AM
What we learned from the Grenfell tower fire was that, as an industry, we are not good at keeping and using records. Before digital processes, records were written and filed never to be looked at again. In an impermanent workforce as is common in construction, the information can get lost or is not adequately completed. If we are using the records as a means of compliance only, the industry misses out on value of the records. Having everything recorded shows the progress through the job, which means manufacturers can learn from the information as real time data enables correction of design and strategy early on.
Dame Judith Hackitt clearly identified that record keeping is a serious issue in this industry. “This industry sector stands out from every other I have looked at in its slow adoption of traceability and quality assurance techniques. These are in widespread use elsewhere and the technology is readily available.” (Hackitt, 2018)
We seek to explore the role the “Golden Thread” of information has on reducing fire risk through effective traceability and a consistent thread of up-to-date information to bridge the gap between design and construction.
