DLUHC says Golden Thread of Information can be stored on multiple systems
The ‘golden thread’ digital record of a building’s information required to be kept under the Building Safety Act (BSA) can be stored on multiple systems, the government has decided.
Under the Government’s building safety reforms, duty holders, defined as clients, principle contractors and principle designers, will be required to maintain a Golden Thread of Information about a building throughout its lifecycle. This digital record is a single source of truth about a building, such as how it is constructed, how it is maintained and how safety has been designed into it. Upon further consideration the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) has decided that to deliver a single source of truth it is not necessary for all the Golden Thread Information to be stored on a single system. The decision was made after receiving feedback from stakeholders about their use of multiple systems and how this can deliver effective outcomes.
