The main idea


  • The main idea of the Golden Thread is that it's information that allows you to understand a building and the steps needed to keep both the building and people safe, now and in the future

Key takeaways


  • The Golden Thread of Information for property data management is now more than ever key to our workflows in the life cycle of property.
  • The Golden Thread takes process, information management standards and an understanding of what you want to collate to manage an asset.
    Everyone’s Golden Thread will be different. It's about quality over quantity when it comes to the information held on an asset.
  • Implementing digital transformation can start small and grow. Organisations should not be phased by the task in hand but should start
    to take the small steps needed to embrace the changes and build the confidence in their teams that the transition can be made. 
  • How classifying assets from reality capture technology and delivering that into a common data format delivers golden thread compliance.
