KIRA-digi has granted funding our research project "C4". C4 aims to raise the stakes in timber construction by broadening the scope of the information communicated by the architectural model. Doing so, the possibilities of the timber product factories' milling machines could be fully enabled and construction details significantly improved both in performance and process efficiency. The project is a collaboration between &' and the fine carpenters at Wooden Research.

KIRA-digi implements the Finnish government's key project concerning the digitalisation of public services. The total funding for the project, planned to end at the end of 2018, is about 16 million euros, to be paid in equal halves by the state and the built environment and construction sector.The aim is to make public construction and zoning information readily accessible to everyone, develop smoothly interoperable systems and harmonised practices, and initiate a host of experimental projects to create new innovations and business. Legislation must be developed to support digitalisation in the sector. Through this, we can create a fertile soil for a digital business ecosystem in the Finnish built environment and construction sector.
