Enhancing the quality of life for all Queensland communities

As Designed as Constructed (ADAC)

What is ADAC?

ADAC is a data specification platform which enables the efficient capture and storage of civil infrastructure asset data. It is open source and adopted widely by councils and utilities across Australia. ADAC is the industry standard for public works infrastructure.

Why adopt ADAC?

ADAC is the national Standard and recognised ‘source of truth’ for automated asset data management. ADAC data can be checked for errors, transformed and electronically transferred into asset management systems, efficiently and reliably and then used to populate asset databases and Geographical Information Systems (GIS). The ADAC framework offers consistent and accurate results, saving time and costs for the owners, recipients and constructors of civil infrastructure assets.

Why ADAC is better than any alternative

ADAC has been developed by industry for industry incorporating the knowledge and expertise of asset experts actively involved with public works. It is open source offering subscribers the freedom to utilise their preferred software systems and ADAC is versatile - it can be adapted to the processes already in place. It has a broad scope with more detailed asset classes than any other options.

Benefits of ADAC

ADAC saves all stakeholders time and resources in processing their infrastructure data. The process ensures accuracy with data integrity and transparency improving corporate governance. The asset data can be round-tripped so that data with integrity can be transferred back to developers. Asset owners, property developers and consulting engineers can reasonably expect a high level of consistency.

Benefits of joining the Consortium

Consortium members are able to influence the development of the ADAC schema participating on the various technical working groups to ensure the schema is developed and tailored to meet their particular needs for example including new attributes.
