By managing building information properly in one place, it is possible for every employee within the organisation to use the same documents and construction drawings.
Housing associations and property managers can also make good use of this information and even give it to their tenants.
Searching for and sharing building information and documents often costs property managers a lot of time. What’s more, the lack of up-to-date information can lead to unnecessary costs and irritation. Using Building Information Management and Digital Twins makes it all a lot simpler.
Building Information Management, or BIM for short, is the structured recording of all the building information and making it accessible via cloud software.

We can help you organise this, in order for you to always have the right building information and documents at your disposal. Our partners Bryder and Hitech/Luxs have an online environment in which all your building information can be accessed in digitally.
In essence, our approach revolves around three things:
- Source: which information sources lead to which building information?
- Organisation: who has access to which building information in which way?
- Platform: how do we distribute and control the building information?
An important source of information within building information is the construction drawing. In the past it was a drawing on paper in a paper archive, but this has slowly transitioned to a digital archive. Digital versions have been made of the construction drawings on paper that we call Digital Twins. It is possible to store an unlimited amount of information in these Digital Twins, the choice is yours.
SOCOTEC has two partners that it collaborates with, namely Bryder and Hitech / Luxs. Both partners have a digital environment in which building information can be made accessible. Depending on your wishes and the type of information you want at your disposal on the platform, we look at which partner we can carry out your assignment with.
The Digital Twin serves as the basis to quickly and simply draw up a NEN2580 measurement certificate of a building. It is used to calculate the various surface areas and present them in a complete NEN2580 measurement certificate. It also states the various different surface areas such as the gross floor area (BVO) and the lettable floor surface (VVO) that are supported by the drawings of the building’s floorplans.
