The Fohlio Podcast

We quickly run through the different phases of building construction and the data involved. Plus: why it's important to keep, manage, and organize construction lifecycle data.

Show Notes

David Fouché gives us a high-level guide to the different phases involved in constructing a building. He also answers the following questions: Which bits of data are involved in each phase? What's the difference between lifecycle and phase-specific data? Why does this matter to designers? Why does it matter to project owners? How does data increase a building's value? 

This episode is best suited for professionals who are new to the industry, and firms that want to expand their services to other phases of the construction cycle.
