Launch of DQI Online, 1 October 2003

Posted: 24th September 2003

CIC will be launching the new interactive web version of the Design Quality Indicators – ‘DQI Online’ on 1 October 2003, held at the Treasury, London. Speakers will include Peter Gershon CBE, Chief Executive of the Office of Government Commerce.

The DQI has been successfully trialed by 86 organisations including design firms, public and private clients and contractors in a “The Trailblazing” pilot scheme which has been operational since July 2002. DQI Online will allow assessments to be managed on the web through a database tool and provide respondents with instant feedback on their views of the design and collective DQI output. The interface for users has been designed to be as approachable and user friendly as possible requiring just an 8 digit key to coordinate the responses.

CABE, Rethinking Construction/Constructing Excellence and OGC have all reaffirmed their support to the DQI for this next phase in its development. Use of the DQI is one of the six headline targets of the Strategic Forum for Construction.
