CICA annual convention

No posts yesterday; I was at the CICA annual convention in London. The turnout wasn’t great – around 30 or so, including speakers – but most attendees managed to stay to the very end of the day. This was no mean achievement for an all-day event on a Friday, and a lot of credit must …

Avanti reality check for extranets (2)

Towards the end of yesterday’s CICA annual convention, I met Mervyn Richards, one of the leading figures on the Avanti project (see 22 September post). He gave me a bit of background to the somewhat negative comment (about extranets and their workflow handling capabilities) made at last month’s CE members convention. Apparently, the comment was …

Construction Computing Show

The Construction Computing Show at the Barbican in London is now less than a month away. I will be co-presenting a seminar on the first day (9 November at 12.45pm) with an NCCTP colleague, Duncan Mactear from 4Projects, on the topic "Making Collaboration Pay". The NCCTP will also have a stand at the event as …

Do exhibitions work? (2)

Following my 22 September post, I visited the PropIT show at London’s Olympia this morning. It wasn’t very busy. I spoke to four different exhibitors and they all told roughly the same story: it was busy first thing yesterday but then tailed off, while today had started like yesterday afternoon…. I commiserated with the organiser …

Avanti reality check for extranets

One of the sessions at yesterday’s Constructing Excellence conference was an update on the DTI-funded Avanti programme. I have watched this initiative with some interest, particularly as it has incorporated the PIX Protocol into its outputs. I contributed to the Protocol on BIW’s behalf, but I haven’t (yet) become directly involved with the Avanti project. …

Do exhibitions work?

Two Asite guys were at the CE conference yesterday and we had a chat over coffee. I learned Asite will be at the PropIT show at London’s Olympia in early October (the second year they have attended the exhibition) – the other vendors from last year (including BIW, 4projects and Aconex) decided the event’s low …

Constructing Excellence

I attended Constructing Excellence‘s members convention in London yesterday – the first major event for members of the former "Collaborating for the Built Environment" (or BE) organisation since it merged with CE (it is now known as the Building and Estates Forum so at least it retains its BE abbreviation). The event was a joint …
