Information Management for the built environment

Glider was established in April 2016 as a digital solutions provider and BIM consultancy for the built environment.

The construction sector has historically struggled with digitalisation but a number of factors has forced the industry to accelerate their adoption of technology. Glider was formed as a response to a growing industry need for trusted, structured data to support the digitisation of the industry and provide better value for asset owners. 

Glider’s mission is to revolutionise how asset information is managed throughout design, construction and operation of a built asset. Their ground-breaking, data-driven, Common Data Environment (CDE) for full lifecycle information management called gliderbim® provides asset owners with the tools needed to manage the production, approval and delivery of all asset information.
