Which AEC collaboration platform will win the 2013 Be2Award?

The 2013 Be2Awards are coming soon. Nominations for categories, including best AEC collaboration application, close on 6 September It’s that time of year again. In August last year, I wrote about the second running of the Be2awards: the world’s first awards for social media in the built environment (which I organise). The third Be2Awards are being held …

COMIT #MobiBIM conference pushes cloud-based data and tools

I attended COMIT‘s latest conference, on BIM and Mobility, at London’s Building Centre on Thursday, and tweeted a lot of the event highlights (my ‘co-tweeter’ Su Butcher helpfully created a great Storify stream where you can see the event unfold). As usual with COMIT events, the conference was a healthy mix of construction people and technology …

Woobius pushing the self-service SaaS offer

From its April 2009 launch, Woobius* has been looking to differentiate itself from competitors by virtue of its simplicity (see posts 1, 2). It still believes this is the right approach (albeit less overtly) and while most of its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) construction collaboration competitors, UK and overseas, still employ conventional sales and deployment consultants, Woobius has …

The state of (construction) collaboration

I spoke at the Collaboration Cafe symposium held at London’s Building Centre on Tuesday, 30 March. I was third speaker on, following StickyWorld and Slider Studio founder Michael Kohn and Axis Design architect Rob Annable, and my brief from Michael was straightforward: to expand on the blog post, The end of the construction collaboration era?, …

Now honoured with its own website, the latest stage of Woobius Eye’s development was the …

StickyWorld and the ‘Collaboration Cafe’

About 18 months ago I met Slider Studio architect Michael Kohn when he presented at the first Be2camp event I co-organised, at London’s Building Centre. I have remained in contact with him ever since (he spoke about principles of democratic design to another Be2camp event in Birmingham last August) and have just received an invitation …

Let’s make construction more ‘social’

[This is a re-post of a blog article I wrote for Building Sustainable Design, which launched this week.] I have spent more than half my career in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) and property industry looking at issues relating to collaboration, and since 2000 have been focused on how to use internet-based technologies to …
