DEDICATE is an AHRC funded project led by Dr Ruggero Lancia and supervised by Dr Ian Anderson. This investigation is aimed at investigating, defining and testing policies, requirements and procedures to build a common sustainable framework for the curation of Built Environment related data. In the DEDICATE project we collaborate with a select group of Scottish project partners from the communities of the main actors in the management and production of Built Environment, that is Architecture practices, Engineering consultancies and Building Control Authorities. Recent national and international regulations enforcing the digital documentation of public works in BIM formats and the rising needs for authoritative and legal digital data management for the building elements manufacturing are going to be especially addressed by the researched framework. In particular, the scope of this investigation project coincides with the present research in Digital Curation on the interoperability of information units and their preservation requirements in specific communities of practice.
