CodeBook - The Company
Working on major projects in the 1980s, Chartered Architect Peter Mann was eager to use computers to help ensure consistency of output and to reduce time spent manually drawing repetitive room designs. Initially, using some of the then latest computing technology he created a library of furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E) and detailed 1:50 layouts for hospital projects.
The arrival of personal computers, spreadsheets, databases and the compound increase in computer power and capacity meant that now textual elements could be linked to graphics and designs could be automatically checked against project requirements.
In 1993, Peter launched the first version of CodeBook – a model for a building that would contain all its information, from the originating brief to the day-to-day operational management of the completed, occupied structure. Since then, and benefitting from customer feedback and from the inputs of fellow architects and other industry professionals, CodeBook has evolved into the sophisticated whole-life solution it is today.
