Envision expanding capabilities

Australia’s Envision has developed into a powerful data hub well-suited to mega-projects. It’s almost five years since I was first contacted by Ennova’s Hugh Hofmeister to talk about the Brisbane, Australia-based company’s Envision construction project management platform (see May 2011 post). Then, a mobile-first approach to cloud-based construction management was relatively new, as was applying lean thinking, …

Dwindling construction week

Digital Construction Week 2015 has ended. DCW15 officially opened with a (for some) Guinness-fuelled flourish at a packed Irish Embassy reception on Tuesday evening and petered out at London’s Business Design Centre at 4pm yesterday afternoon. Autumn is a difficult time to run any event – perhaps doubly so for an ambitious new multi-day event and its attempt …

Just over six months after its December 2014 IPO on the Melbourne Stock Exchange, and some four months on from a rosy financial update, Australian-based Software-as-a-Service collaboration vendor Aconex is benefitting from the currently weak Australian dollar, according to various reports (eg: AFR). According to Aconex, full-year revenue for the year to 30 June 2015 should rise to …

Latista adds mobile business intelligence

Latista says its BI toolset will help users quickly identify and resolve issues by highlighting key indicators and trends, and BIM seems to be firmly on the roadmap. I have mentioned US-based mobile construction solution provider Latista only occasionally since 2010, most recently in connection with its now parent Textura, who acquired the Virginia-based business in November …

I have a BuildingSMART contact, Brok Howard (he’s @Brokhoward on Twitter), at HOK in the USA, who was looking for some designers’ views on how the UK AEC sector is moving from paper to full digital model delivery. He asked me about views expressed by speakers at recent conferences (for example, I attended ThinkBIM in …

Trimble acquires SketchUp from Google

My mind is still a bit boggled with today’s news that US-based IT giant Trimble is acquiring SketchUp from the search giant Google (normally, we hear lots of stories about the latter buying businesses – it’s less common for us to read about it disposing of technologies). This moves the simple-to-use modelling software to the …

COMIT–where BIM meets augmented reality, point clouds and QR Codes (among other things)

Two weeks ago, I mentioned COMIT, Construction Opportunities for Mobile IT, and its forthcoming conference on how smart mobile devices can be used to add value to BIM. Since then (last week), I have attended the COMIT community day and AGM (held at BSRIA, Bracknell) and, from the round-table discussions, it was clear that some …
