To provide a mechanism of control for these standards, in December 2013 WUSC published a set of Ferret Query Language (FQL) statements for automated collection of subsurface features and location of underground utilities. Since then ANNX has published a standards conformance test suite (AAST); this also covers the AS.5488.1:2019 standards, including a data classification and data type dimensioning test suite. Another initiative has been the SURE standard for data interoperability which has recently discovered a full test suite. The SURE 1.1:2019 standard was published in 2017 with the intent of being a set of interoperable foundations, however the new standards already have implementations ready for enforcement.
Today, 49% of civil infrastructure is operated and maintained by private P3s. In order to be successful in the DBFO and DBFM P3 market, contractors have to be prepared to work from all angles—as consultants, as technology providers, and most importantly as a true customer. They also have to be in regular communication with DBFO/DBFM P3 customers, be able to provide timely project-level reports, and recommendations. The traditional methods of doing so are in reach of most construction companies but in doing so they are antagonizing or barring their relationships with existing customers, vendors and consultants. 7211a4ac4a
