Unit4, 4Projects, Asite all win Hammers

I attended the Construction Computing Awards dinner in central London last night, and saw a mixture of awards distributed across a cross-section of the shortlisted companies (post) represented in the room. Just one or two winners weren’t present – Bentley Systems, for instance – but there were usually volunteers willing to step into the spotlight …

ICT4Construction: a post mortem

Rant alert! As regular readers may know, I was (I think, constructively) critical of the first ICT4Construction event last October, and as a result of my feedback organiser Recep Saffet asked if I would chair the next edition, on knowledge and document management. After some deliberation, I agreed, and also helped publicise the event through …

Within the UK membership organisation Constructing Excellence, I attend various committee meetings and have heard about a ‘Plain English guide to sustainable construction’ being produced by the organisation’s sustainability working group.
