In the construction industry, building handover is a critical process that requires the transfer of comprehensive information about the building from the contractor to the owner or operator. This process involves creating and maintaining a digital O&M (operation and maintenance) manual containing all the essential information about the building and its components. However, managing this documentation can be a challenging and time-consuming task, particularly for large-scale projects. Fortunately, the Operance platform offers an efficient and effective solution to this problem.
The Operance Platform
Operance is a cloud-based platform that simplifies the process of building handover by providing a user-friendly interface for creating and managing digital O&M manuals. The platform lets contractors input information on the building’s design, construction, and operational procedures. The information can be added throughout the project lifecycle, making it easier to keep the O&M manual up to date.
One of the unique features of Operance is it’s ability to capture the golden thread of information. The golden thread refers to information critical for building safety, such as fire safety plans, maintenance schedules, and certification documents. The Operance platform ensures that this information is captured and made easily accessible to building operators, reducing the risk of safety incidents.
