Golden Thread for Your Business

Since the term “Golden Thread” appears across many different disciplines, it has more than one specific meaning. In construction, we usually encounter this term in the context of “the golden thread of information”, which means an accurate and up-to-date record of the building data needed to maintain and operate an asset.


“The golden thread should detail how a building was designed, built and maintained, with all project and asset data being held digitally: it acts as a live repository, linking all data about how a building is managed and operated.”
– Rebecca de Cicco, director of Digital Node and founder of Women in BIM.


It is fairly well-known that information concerning construction projects is hardly ever complete and accessible. The fragmented data and the lack of a records trail may threaten safety, potentially leading to a tragic outcome. In order to prevent such events, we need to take precautions by supporting the development and implementation of the golden thread of data.

How Does Golden Thread Work?

Now, you may ask yourself (and rightly so) what precisely is this process going to look like. Besides achieving successful communication across different departments, the main intention of the golden thread is to improve accountability.

In order to do so, it will record who signed off information at every critical point across the design and construction stages, which will guarantee capturing the digital engagement of people by simply registering their decision.

The Golden Thread reflects the BIM process (Building Information Modeling) and information delivery cycle while outlining the responsibilities of those involved in the project. It is clear which responsibilities are assigned to each worker alongside their key roles that will help develop smooth information flow within the project.

It works as a digital description in the form of digitised information models that every person working on the project has unlimited access to and can modify, from the architect to the client. Thanks to this process being held during the operational phase of the project, the latter can be double-checked and verified for execution and safety.
