Once again, building information modelling practitioners from around the world are invited to demonstrate their …

Guest post by Nathan Doughty: BIM-as-a-Service

(My blog post about disruptive ideas stimulated Nathan Doughty, chief operating officer of London-based construction collaboration technology vendor Asite to contact me with his own views, which I suggested he write as a guest post on ExtranetEvolution.com.) Paul’s recent blog post about disruptive ideas in the construction collaboration space prompted some contemplation for me – …

Design by Many

One of those interesting coincidences…. Yesterday, the Institution of Civil Engineers, with the Advanced Institute of Management, hosted an event, “Engineering Management in a Digital Economy” in London which, despite the wintry weather and the associated transport difficulties, still drew around 40 people from both industry and academia. They assembled to discuss issues such as …

Asite Autumn 09 release

UK construction collaboration vendor Asite has issued its Autumn 09 Release, says a website notice dated 6 November 2009. Three hightlights I picked out: New maps “mash-ups” – using either a Google Maps portlet or a Microsoft Virtual Earth / Bing Maps portlet. The Virtual Earth portlet supports 3D visualisation, meaning users can render their …

Another good BIM viewpoint

The latest AECbytes viewpoint is from Stuart Carroll of US IT provider Beck Technology. In BIM: When Will It Enter “The Ours” Zone?, he responds to an earlier article on Building Information Modelling (BIM) by John Tobin (Proto-Building: To BIM is to Build), and echoes my own, often-repeated view (see post, for example) that it’s …

Charrette’s offline

I’ve finally got round to reading last week’s Building magazine and, for me, the most interesting article (We did it our way) concerned an “intensive collaborative planning exercise that brings people together and asks them to come up with a development plan for an area” – also known as a charrette. Apparently, the charrette process, …

Reviewing BuildingSMART 2008

I have now had a couple of days to reflect on Wednesday’s BuildingSMART conference in London (see my live-blog posts here and here). My thoughts…. UK lagging behind – Given that it’s an organisation’s annual event, you would expect a lot of the same people to turn up each year, and there were a lot …

BuildingSMART Conference, RIBA, London

0940am BST: This is the first of (hopefully) several updates from the BuildingSMART one-day conference at the RIBA in London (the main auditorium has wi-fi (hurray!), but few power connections (boo!), but by topping up the battery from time to time, I hope to get by). Only about 40 delegates in the room as the …

How web 2.0 friendly is AEC ICT?

I have thinking a lot about Web 2.0 stuff today. Over and above my day job and my usual background Tweets, RSS and blog-watching, I have been trying to help move the proposed BE2camp event along (we now have a potential central London venue for the October event, with interest from contributors in the US …

BuildLondonLive embracing Web 2.0

I have just registered to attend this year’s BuildingSMART conference, taking place this Wednesday, 25 June, at the RIBA in London (see previous post), and have also registered as an observer for this week’s parallel BuildLondonLive event (see BuildLondonLive – update). BuildLondonLive is embracing some Web 2.0 tools; it looks like Asite‘s Nathan Doughty – …
