We work alongside our clients to build a strategy which fits the project and the user’s requirements, is compliant to Information Management standard PAS1192 and Building Information Modelling (BIM) standard BS1192. We can advise on the best-practice for Common Data Environment (CDE) structure, approvals process and collaborative design production from a single source of truth.
D2 Rail can provide Document Control support both in house and remotely, working with you to provide the best service to suit you and your project. The team manage the transfer and logging of large amounts of electronic data, ensuring full traceability in the design, approval and review processes.
Our team have gained experience from many Rail projects and can provide day to day support in a multitude of systems including; Bentley ProjectWise, Bentley Enterprise Bridge (eB), Connect Tracker, AutoDesk Vault, ASSAI, ASITE, Cab-i-Net, Microsoft SharePoint and Opentext Content Server amongst others.

Consents form a critical part of major infrastructure projects and can demand a huge volume of data to be produced. Controlled and organised management of this data is vital for successful project delivery. A Common Data Environment (CDE) is an essential tool when compiling Consents submissions, allowing teams from various disciplines to work collaboratively and comply with relevant BIM standards.
When working on Consents submissions there is a surplus of data which needs to be managed. This management will be controlled by a designated Information Controller within a CDE. Our Information Controllers maintain tight controls on the quality of the information submitted and process this information promptly to meet project deadlines.
An effective CDE should be able to not only store all required data, but also trace the review and approval processes through the lifecycle of the project. D2 Rail’s Information Management team has a wealth of experience in setting up and managing CDEs. Our teams can provide continued support through the Consents process, from the configuration of the CDE that the information will be stored in, to delivery to external parties and the Department for Transport. Our Information Management team set up project processes prior to the work commencing, producing numbering and naming conventions, guidance notes for the CDE, document templates, drawing borders, Photomontage templates and CAD support. All these points are crucial at the beginning of the works in order to maintain a seamless process when submitting documentation.
