How we collaborate in the Danish Construction Industry

We’re not there to replace you, we’re there to support you.

One of the things I’d like to talk about is collaboration
and collaboration as I mentioned earlier is a very important part of
how we deliver projects.

But it’s not just about the projects – it’s collaboration with
other specialist companies.

For example architects and engineers who deliver very specialized architectural and engineering services.
They might not have the in-house capability and that’s where we come in to collaborate with these type of companies.

So the way we see the Industry going actually is very small specialized groups like KOSMOS and like many other companies, and those groups coming together in partnerships to deliver projects
And maybe repeating again on the next project or maybe disbanding and coming back in the future again.
That’s how we see the Industry, at least for the small to medium sized business.

And I think that’s an important aspect of what we are as KOSMOS, we’re not there to replace you.

Commercial management in Denmark and the need of an specific local education

Last week, the founder of KOSMOS, Ross Griffin, was interviewed by Berlingske for their Ejendomme section, to talk about commercial management in Denmark and the need of an specific local education to bring more Danish professionals to the industry. Access to the full interview:

BIM maturity: 5D Cost

BIM in relation the 3D aspect seems to be well established and strong processes are implemented in almost every single construction firm in the country. Now, we need to begin thinking on what is next, and in the case of BIM, the development will need to focus on 4D (time) and 5D (cost), but not just in the execution phase.

In order to build good standards and grow maturity around these areas, it is necessary to involve the planners and commercial specialists in the BIM strategy development process. Only in this way will the process take into account the output required by these 2 disciplines. This is necessary in order to take full advantage of the information produced and incorporate it in the project design.

IKT agreements must include minimum requirements and conditions on how to produce the project material, not only for the final delivery, but also along the design process to facilitate the control around these 2 specialist discipline deliveries.
