The Golden Thread principle
The ‘Golden Thread’ was first coined in the UK fire industry by Dame Judith Hackitt, following her interim report of the Grenfell Tower fire review in 2017. In essence, the principle seeks to extend fire safety best practice beyond fire professionals to wider society, ensuring that the right people have the right information at the right time. This will ensure buildings are safe and building safety risks are managed throughout the building’s lifecycle.
Digital job management software as a solution?
The fire safety industry is hugely underserved, yet highly regulated and intricate, creating a unique opportunity to digitise fire safety working methods. Integration into the Building Information Management (BIM) process creates conditions for greater participation and better communication between all stakeholders on a project – from design, through to construction and occupation.
Collaboration leads directly to increased quality and efficiency – a must for both profitability and sustainability within the sector. Digital tools not only improve standards, but they also improve record-keeping and auditing at every stage,
minimising costs and improving quality.
