Welcome to the Connect & Construct Information Portal. The aim of Connect & Construct is to increase the competitiveness of SMEs in the construction industry through ICT. Through smart use of ICT, companies can exchange information faster, waste less time on coordination and reduce failure costs.
However, smart use of ICT is easier said than done. There is plenty of information available on smart use of ICT in the construction sector. Moreover, there are a lot of initiatives that promote it and can help you become 'more digital'. What is more difficult is finding the right information. Often the path that leads to the optimal use of ICT is unclear and vague for a lot of organisations, and especially for the less mature. The end-result is that the complexity of exchanging digital information in the construction industry means that the average digital maturity of construction companies in Europe is still low.
This tool helps you increase your organisation's digital maturity. It will provide you with direction in the maze of ICT standards, communication protocols, initiatives, and everything else you need to know in the world of digital information exchange. The starting point of this journey is to assess your digital maturity.
By clicking on 'Measure your digital maturity!' you can assess your digital maturity based on four indicators:
The assessment consists of 22 statements and only takes a few minutes. After the assessment you will receive personal tips and information on how to make better use of ICT and improve your market position.
By clicking on 'Main information portal' you gain access to a general overview of information you need to exchange information digitally, listing among others the main standards for Building Information Modelling (BIM), communication protocols, data dictionaries, ICT tools and eLearning within Europe.
