As a recently appointed member of steering group of Constructing Excellence‘s Building and Estates Forum, I am now well-placed to keep up with developments regarding the Avanti programme (see previous post).
A recent meeting heard a presentation from CWC (CE’s training and consultancy arm). It appears a distinction is now being drawn between “the narrow Avanti SMP (Standard Method and Procedure) – which with luck may become an ISO standard for CAD data exchange – and a broader integrated collaborative approach to achieving project and business excellence, now branded CWC Advantage.”
Updated 22 January 2007: The latest BE e-newsletter mentions a CWC-Avanti launch at the House of Lords in London on 30 January 2007. No further information, so I’m not sure who can attend, etc.
