IC Digital

The need for embedding a digital culture and making information-driven decisions in construction and asset management has never been greater. Our team provide strategic and project services to support digital transformation and construction across all sectors.

At Identity Consult we are continually improving the way we work to provide the most dynamic and sustainable services to our clients. IC Digital provides that missing link which allows us to offer a full lifecycle service.

IC Digital is a one-stop shop for digital transformation and construction services which builds upon our well-established BIM Leader and Assurance service roles to better facilitate and support wider project teams and delivery.

It is our target to simplify the digitisation of construction and demonstrate how we will help make your business and projects more efficient and successful. We have advised many clients how to adopt new methodologies which drive resilience from within and show how the integration of forward-thinking strategies and industry leading technology and processes delivers consistent, measurable, and sustainable benefits.

Piecing the puzzle

We provide varying levels of support and guidance which are tailored to the needs of your business and your team. We work with all construction stakeholders from owner / operators to manufacturers, at both strategic and project level, to ensure that the information requirements are defined, managed and validated during the design and construction phases before working with the facilities teams to optimise outputs for ongoing operational management of the asset.

Our People

Guiding your digital transformation

A quickly evolving industry requires a forward-thinking approach. We work with our clients to understand their core values to ensure the digital transformation we develop exudes the same principles and ambition.

A digital strategy is a holistic approach enabled through definition of your information requirements, and their subsequent monitoring and auditing throughout project delivery, to ensure your essential information outputs are accurate and allow you to draw on this intelligence to improve future project and business performance.

We provide advice and guidance on how your business will use information and data to plan for the future and produce technical documentation to support your growth through upskilling and empowering of your people.

We advise how you will integrate information management protocols driven by the information important to you, and decisions you always make, which will deliver greater outturn predictability, better visibility and clarity, and a more structured way of working which will stand the test of time.

Digital Benefits

Managing your BIM requirements

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a whole-life building process underpinned by technology, collaborative processes and structured information management. BIM enables better-informed decisions to be made and outcomes predicted ahead of time throughout all stages of a project.

BIM fosters collaborative relationships between all project stakeholders, via shared outcomes, and positively impacts project delivery throughout the lifecycle by ensuring the deliverable is defined sufficiently early for the project team to structure the way in which project data (drawings, reports, models, etc) is created, shared and approved.

Our team provide robust implementation and management of the BIM process, ensuring stakeholder responsibilities are understood and information is structured, shared and validated, in accordance with relevant standards and governance, resulting in reduced project risk, greater cost certainty, better quality deliverable and enhanced asset management potential.

Securing your information

Information management is the cornerstone of effective project management. Understanding the answers to 4 key questions surrounding project information fundamentally improves efficiency and drives a consistent, responsible method of information exchange. Common data environments (CDE), or online documentation suites, provide a level of structure and a defined workflow which ensures your information is accurate, reliable and secure.

We advise our clients and project stakeholders which CDE best suits the needs of the project and advise and guide them in the procurement, administration and management processes to guarantee the validity of project information.

Getting Information

What we do for our clients

We advise our clients how to get maximum benefit from digital transformation through:

Understanding your assets

Using industry-leading technology, we can create a digital twin of your assets and provide a platform for teams to view a project within an immersive and realistic 3D environment, accessible any time. Utilising the reality capture, our work will help your business make faster, more-efficient decisions and significantly reduce the resource and time required to understand the scope of a piece of work particularly when reviewing existing assets. As shown in The Malhamdale Showhome, we also provide this service to our housing clients which has proven to significantly increase the likelihood of consumer sales whilst also reducing the work required during handover.

Digitising the Shopping Experience

Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, footfall on our high streets is at a record low, making it very hard for retailers to generate sales and remain operational. Attracting customers therefore requires new, innovative ideas. Our solution ensures that restrictions and compliance with regulations can be demonstrated but which also introduces an immersive shopping experience to virtually allow customers to browse and purchase in-store.

Digitising the Shopping Experience

Instead of trying to lure in shoppers by lowering prices or holding big sales events, innovative companies from around the world are utilising immersive 3D virtual tours alongside eCommerce to reinvent and improve the shopping experience. As we move into the winter season, all businesses should consider this as an opportunity to push sales through a different platform which offers a dynamic new market presence.
