Over the past 20 to 30 years, BIM has been revolutionising construction industry, shaking the very grounds of a very traditional area of business which is manifestly slow in adopting new technologies and materials and where delivery delays and cost overruns are frequent.
BIM has indeed been making a massive contribution to a timely and smooth delivery of a construction project, however the process has meant that staggering amounts of digital data are now being created to capture all areas of a Construction project: from designers to contractors to supply chain. Hence the need of a role able to handle such data requiring a high level of control and accuracy, making sure it is appropriately interpreted and that it reaches the right people at the right time.
A Government Construction Strategy was published in 2011 in the UK. The strategy set a minimum requirement for Level 2 BIM on centrally-procured public projects incorporating the absolute requirement for all documentation and project information to be electronic. In an effort to respond to these governmental challenges, the construction industry drafted a number of BIM protocols, i.e. Construction Industry Council (CIC) BIM protocol, which sets out the requirement to appoint an information manager.
BIM generates huge amounts of digital data that is continuously managed and exchanged throughout the construction project lifecycle. Exceptional care is required to capture and reuse accurate data at different project stages and among various stakeholders within the project – be they the Design Team, Contractors and Subcontractors, or supply chain. Majenta are here to help you manage complex BIM digital data, acting as an information gatekeeper and streamlining the timely and efficient exchange of secure project information.
Majenta possess the right mix of knowledge, expertise, tools and manpower to not only deliver on standard construction industry requirements, but to exceed your construction project information management expectations. Our specialists are here to assess each project on a case by case basis and to identify and implement the best solution with the least amount of risk to you as the client.
We will be in constant communication with you to make sure we accommodate any requests or queries that you might have and to keep you constantly informed throughout the project lifecycle.
We have experience in dealing with high-profile clients, such as Airedale and the University of Cambridge, but we have also worked with numerous middle- and small- size stakeholders.
We offer a tailored range of services that have been specifically designed to help improve your digital information management, processes and workflow.
As your trusted Information Manager, we will be able to provide inter alia:
Please note this is not a comprehensive list, our offer is much more varied and customisable, so please contact us for more information.
As part of our Information Manager service offering, we are able to provide full COBie support.
A construction project involves different types of data, e.g. drawings, bills of quantities, etc, which are put together by architects, designers and builders and then provided to the client in a format that is not of great use to them. COBie was designed to contain standardised information in a standardised format that is then shared between construction professionals at set stages within the project.
The Construction Operations Building Information Exchange or simply, COBie is an international standard for the capture and delivery of BIM-related data. It was put together by a number of US public agencies and it is generally a spreadsheet offering a consistent format for construction data.
In 2017, Majenta became the first UK provider certified to teach the COBie Academy, after the great privilege of being approached by Bill East, the founder and designer of COBie.
In association with the ‘Center for Advanced Construction Information Modeling’ at The University of Florida, we can provide three courses that specialize in BIM workflow management, including: “COBie – As Designed”, “COBie – As-Built”, “COBie Quality Control”.
The most important reason is that COBie accreditations are essential for anyone working in a BIM environment. As a result, the COBie Academy is designed to provide contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, information managers and project owners with the essential knowledge and hands-on techniques needed to work effectively within a BIM workflow.
Majenta are not only here to provide accredited COBie training in an efficient and structured manner for optimal learning results, but we also offer you all the necessary support and guidance for the delivery of data, including compliance assessment and consultancy services.
Our experts are here to thoroughly support you throughout your construction project lifecycle in managing your digital information safely and accurately.

"Their professional, efficient and successful approach from start to finish makes Majenta a pleasure to work with."
"As opposed to other client's internal FTP, Majenta is quick. The notifications have helped me and my team mates to track the right information which in-turn has saved time on both ends on various occasions. This feature is not available in internal FTP servers.
"The technical guys at Majenta Solutions have become our user-friendly interface; they really understand both Jaguar, our major client, and Ford."
