Part of RICS’s global professional network, the Tech Partner Programme is a collaboration platform for innovative data and technology.
Partners of the programme seek to produce thought leadership, content, and market insight for the profession.
Commenting on the move, Asite CEO Nathan Doughty said: “We are delighted to join RICS Tech Partner Programme and to extend the umbrella of the Asite Ecosystem to include RICS.
“As we at Asite continue our rich history of digital innovation for the built environment into our third decade, we look forward to working ever more closely with RICS and ensuring our platforms and services are incorporating the latest global industry standards.
“Through this work we will bring a focus on data and open data platforms for our customers so they can remain at the forefront of change in the built environment for years to come.”
RICS’ Andrew Knight added: “It’s tremendous to have Asite on the Programme and we look forward to working with them on joint thought leadership and supporting their work to integrate the RICS Data Standard (RDS) that supports our international standards in the digital world.”
The RICS-managed Tech Affiliate Partner Programme aims to ensure that global providers of technology and data in the built environment follow appropriate international standards whilst proving professional assurance to their customers.
RICS says the programme provides an opportunity for organisations across the built environment sector to come together and collaborate on these operating standards.
The programme also seeks to encourage the continued collaboration and mutually beneficial learning between innovators from outside the property sector and the profession itself.
As part of the partnership, Asite says it will develop and rollout support for the RICS Data Standards (RDS) into the Asite Platform.
Asite’s implementation of the RDS references will support a range of RICS and international standards covering property measurement, construction cost measurement, life-cycle costing, embodied carbon, and key performance metrics for construction and building operations.
