Atmotube: air pollution monitor

Atmotube puts air pollution monitoring in your hands, and enables users to share readings in real-time and via social media. Earlier this year, I participated in a COMIT community day workshop which asked us to think about ways in which air quality might be monitored for construction workers in tunnels. As a cyclist and someone employed at …

FieldLens: “the Facebook of construction”?

Some months ago, a structural engineer friend James Burt alerted me to FieldLens, and we had a long chat about this and related applications before the London launch of BIM4SMEs in April. FieldLens is the work of a New York based development team led by CEO Doug Chambers. It aims to put construction collaboration on …

Vondle becomes Chapoo

Bricsys, the Brussels, Belgium-based CAD software vendor that also provides a Software-as-a-Service project collaboration platform called Vondle (April 2007 post) is renaming the latter Chapoo, and incorporating some social sharing features. I heard about the name change last week during a telephone conversation with one of its executives, and the news was also broken by …

BIM, SaaS and mobile driving Newforma developments

Once scathing of the attractions of Software-as-a-Service, Newforma is now actively embracing the cloud, SaaS, BIM and mobile, and eyeing potential social media ideas for future product development. Last week I learned more about Newforma, developer of the enterprise-based Newforma Project Center application and now a recent entrant to the Software-as-a-Service collaboration space with its …

Does Social Media Belong in CAD Applications?

Via the excellent TenLinks newsletter, I found this Cadalyst article by Robert Green on social media in the CAD workplace. Robert admits he is not a big fan of social media in the workplace: I do see some value in it for CAD managers, as long as it is used judiciously. However, I foresee nothing …

From Asite to Adoddle

London-based Software-as-a-Service construction collaboration technology vendor Asite has a completely new website and has also renamed its platform Adoddle. A hand-drawn cartoon character resembling (to me) a cross between a light-bulb and a rocket is used to personify and represent the offering (previously branded simply Asite). ‘Addodle’ is shown beating the ‘chaos monster’, and, in …

Document control takes a vacation?

For a couple of my clients, I have considering the production of various infographics related to the products or services they provide – these are proving popular online as a simple way to summarise various types of data (surveys, system operations, timelines, etc), and good infographics can become quite ‘viral’ on social networks such as …

New conject UK website taking shape

The new conject website went live earlier today. As noted on 22 March, the old BIW Technologies company name and associated branding is being superseded by group-wide use of the conject name to cover its SaaS project control and related collaborative solutions across all geographic markets (with the “plan-build-operate” life-cycle very much to the fore). Some …

Stiktu: a social app, perhaps with professional potential

Thanks to a transAtlantic Twitter conversation with fellow construction technology fanatic Carol Hagen, I was alerted yesterday to a new mobile augmented reality application, Stiktu. From the people behind augmented reality browser Layar, this has just been released on both iPhone and Android in nine European countries (US to follow, I believe), and its initial …
