The Golden Thread Report

The golden thread of accurate information on building design, construction and operations.

The Golden Thread Report


What we did: 
Branding, Creative and Design

The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), in collaboration with i3PT Certification, conducted a Golden Thread Survey, the results of which have been published in The Golden Thread Report.


Costello Palmer worked with the CIOB and i3PT in the design of the report document, which presents the findings of the in-depth survey undertaken in 2020 that looked at how prepared the UK’s built environment industry is to deliver a digital golden thread of information. 

The survey found that 85% of built environment professionals believe that a digital golden thread of information will enable better decision making and create a clearer chain of accountability across the built environment.

We needed to create a recognisable branding style for the report, and worked with the two organisations to perfect the creative concepts for the styling of the survey findings. The result was an elegantly presented document which cleverly leads the reader through the survey results.

Our innovative use of charts and tables to present the survey results ensures the findings are easy to access and digest, with the perfect ratio of text and visuals to allow the reader to connect with the subject matter – keeping them engaged from the first to the last page.

It has been a pleasure working with the Costello Palmer team, they made it look so easy and effortless in coming up with the design of the report and setting out the survey findings, we are extremely pleased with the result.Vicki Reynolds, Chief Technology Officer, i3PT
