Digital construction autumn 2015

Construction IT conferences: are we beginning to move beyond BIM and look at other, related fields, and to do so more affordably?

FIATECH and COMIT to collaborate, but don’t forget the others…

At a Harvard University conference in Boston last year, I briefly met Ric Jackson of FIATECH and talked about the NCCTP‘s efforts to develop a data exchange standard that would allow data to be transferred between different construction collaboration (‘extranet’) platforms.
