Data Templates in Construction – Lars Fredenlund

Published by Will Needham on

On this week’s show, I take a deep-dive on Data Templates in the Construction industry with Lars Fredenlund. 

Lars has been right at the forefront of the industry push towards to use of data templates on projects.

As the lines between design, manufacturing and construction are blurred more than ever, it’s clear that data templates play a really key role in making the exchange of information between these phases efficient and scalable. 

To make this happen, in 2020 Lars is part of the working group that will launch the CEN/ ISO standards on Data Templates.

In this episode, we’ll be answering some big question like:  

  • What does the future hold of data templates within the construction industry?
  • How can a new CEN/ ISO Standard provide the backbone for consistent data sharing and international collaboration on construction projects.
  • Which are the most advanced countries in Europe on the digitalisation journey and the reasons for this?  

As you will hear, Lars isn’t afraid of telling it like it is and has some really interesting perspectives to share.

I believe in a future built environment that is safe, sustainable, healthy, efficient & productive. Actually, I believe pockets of excellence in each of these things already exist; they are just distributed geographically in different parts of the world. My mission is to go out there and find these pockets of excellence and tell the stories of the people, projects, policies that are responsible for such positive steps.
