The Digital Construction Cluster focuses on the value chain of the entire construction lifespan – from design to utilisation. Strategically the objective is to develop an innovative digital construction environment that includes the entire construction lifecycle, along with new VDCM products, Grid and e-construction portal, and thereby significantly increase the sales revenues and international competitiveness of the cluster partners.
The cluster is focused on the development of knowledge-based construction, whereby the common goal of the construction sector would be to increase added value; with the technical equivalent being resources, incl. the reduction of energy costs per unit of production.
Based thereon, the specific goals include:
- the development of the market for intelligent construction solutions;
- the greater digitalisation and automation of construction activities.
The Digital Construction Cluster welcomes all offers of cooperation that will help to enliven cooperation between Estonian companies involved with the construction lifespan and to internationalise it.
The cluster is mainly focused on:
the analysis and systematisation of the best experiences in the digital construction field;
the development, description and marketing of new VDCM products;
the development and description for the e-construction portal, and Grid structure, as well as all the parts of the construction lifecycle, incl. creating prototypes for a digital construction information exchange environment in order to manage the construction lifespan.
The initiators and implementers of the Digital Construction Cluster are 22 organisations in the field: 18 companies, two research institutions (Tallinn University of Applied Sciences, Tallinn University of Technology), one competence centre (Smart House Competence Centre) and one local government (Väätsa Rural Municipality Government).
