I managed the collating of information from the Design Team to produce ‘Spatial Data Sheets’ for each room or space in the building which allowed all the specifications about a room to be accessed electronically and interactively in one easy to find location and facilitated the checking of compliance with the brief. This was integrated with a coding system for all materials, systems and finishes used throughout the project.
