City-Insights = asset insights

City-Insights potentially does more than ‘tell stories about places’ – as a mobile web tool, it could be used by construction and property professionals for a host of hyper-local internal and external communication purposes. The recent COMIT* community day, as usual, welcomed some new members and a few guests. Among the former was City-Insights, a young (c. …

Could an app improve the image of construction?

Could a construction app, helping improve project communications, help change the image of construction? Last week’s Constructing Excellence national members convention attracted about 90 people to talk about “The Image of Construction“. The event was curated by CE’s early career movement, G4C, and they invited speakers from the Considerate Constructors Scheme, the Construction Clients Group, …

Take care with those AEC IT surveys

On my PR blog, I’ve just been ranting about poorly executed market research surveys, perhaps ill-targeted, resulting in unrepresentative samples, and maybe asking leading or ambiguous questions. Unfortunately, the outcome of some research can be news releases, reports and white papers that are tailored to support a company’s public relations rather than to genuinely inform …

DesigningBuildings: a wiki in progress

I have been interested in the potential use of wikis in the construction industry since the early 2000s, and have long regarded them as collaborative tools, with people collectively creating and improving content. Wikipedia is, of course, the most well-known wiki project (one of several from the Wikimedia Foundation). I am a long-time Wikipedian, and …

Barbour ABI hypes Conject

After 25 years in UK construction public relations, I sometimes wince when I see news announcements packed with marketing hype rather than neutral and ideally verifiable journalistic descriptions. So, which company… is “Globally renowned” “has managed to excel in the AEC market on a global scale”, and “are masters at their own craft”? According to …

TeamBinder selected for $8.5bn Sydney mega-project

The project’s first stage is scheduled for completion …
