Paolo will present on Implementing the Gold Standard in construction procurement: a focus on the Integrated Information Management Contract (IIMC)
Starting from the analysis of the independent review of construction framework “constructing the Gold Standard”, the presentation will focus on the recommendation 12 on how to embed digital technologies through frameworks. In particular, as answer to such a goal, Paolo will focus on the new released Integrated Information Management Contract (IIMC) and the benefits of such an approach to reach the need of collaboration that is the foundation of ISO 19650 principles
The use of collaborative approaches to drive digitalization can provide many benefits to the construction industry in terms of performance, safety, sustainability and value for money over the whole life of built assets.
Paulo is looking forward to learning from worldwide experts and sharing this new approach that could improve the contractual mechanisms in the construction industry.
