Show Notes

In this BimTube podcast episode, we speak with Matthew Lever, Global GIS Platform Director for Arcadis, about the crucial role of information management (IM) in Architecture, Engineering and construction (AEC) projects. Matthew highlights how IM enhances collaboration, communication, and decision-making. He also offers guidance on implementing effective IM practices, which cover Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Digital Construction, BIM, and 'Digital Twins'.

Matthew asserts that IM is vital for the success of any project, whether it's a single initiative, an organisation-wide strategy, or an industry-level approach. Properly managed information ensures that team members have timely access to essential data, thereby improving project outcomes.

To implement effective IM, Matthew stresses the need for a clear plan and appropriate tools. He also emphasises the importance of involving all stakeholders in the IM process.

Note: The views expressed are Matthew's personal opinions and not those of his employer.
