A CDE is a digital information platform that centralizes project data storage and access, typically related to a construction project and building information modelling (BIM) workflows. The benefit of using a common data environment (or CDE) is that all project stakeholders have access to the same secure portal, allowing them to collaborate on BIM models, drawings, and documents as well as digitising internal processes and tracking cost and programme.
