Entry description

Using “blockchains”, the Building Passport project intends to record contracts between various parties involved in a build. And, in addition to this, perhaps even make it possible to consolidate any relevant data amongst authorised parties, by adding pointers to that data. Think of a passport – all the metaphorical places your construction has gone will be recorded, with the precise details being held by the relevant agencies.
