Network FOuNTAIN is the Network For ONTologies And Information maNagement in Digital Built Britain. The Network is supported by the Centre for Digital Built Britain. The vision of the Network is for all stakeholders in Digital Built Britain (DBB) to be able to meet their information needs. With the establishment of concepts such as Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Common Data Environments (CDE), built environment design, construction and operation are becoming increasingly information-intensive. The Network undertook five workshop activities between July and December 2018. This report summarises the proceedings of these workshops, and in particular establishes future capabilities needed to realise the vision of DBB.
