Description / Abstract:

This Information Paper explores approaches to the asset management of concrete components and structures using data from sensor and wireless communication technology (ICT). As well as providing a short description of the emerging technology and its potential uses, the paper also examines the potential business cases for use of data capture and management technology and specific areas (including supply chain and through-life management), where its potential value may spur early adoption.

The research underpinning this Information Paper was jointly funded by BRE Trust and a Technology Strategy Board project that examined the use of sensor and radio-frequency identification (RFID) technologies in the aviation and construction sectors.

Construction projects are undertaken to fulfil the business and service objectives of the owners and users and the success of a built asset depends on how well it meets these needs. ICT-enabled technology can help in: improving manufacturing, supply chain and construction management of the structure and its component parts; and providing data and analysis capabilities to facilitate the through-life management of the structure.
