Avanti – latest

As a recently appointed member of steering group of Constructing Excellence‘s Building and Estates Forum, I am now well-placed to keep up with developments regarding the Avanti programme (see previous post). A recent meeting heard a presentation from CWC (CE’s training and consultancy arm). It appears a distinction is now being drawn between “the narrow Avanti …

Collaborative BIM – wow! or what?!

After my ‘extranet’ predictions post earlier this week, I had a think about  Asite‘s Collaborative BIM product, and whether the industry is yet ready for such a thing. Regular readers may recall (see my 10 October 2006 post) that Asite first announced its ‘forthcoming’ collaborative BIM product at a London conference on 4 October. Just over a fortnight …

Outdated claims on document management

Sometimes you read things that are just plain wrong. Take today, for instance. I spotted a potentially interesting headline at AECcafe.com: Managing Your AEC Content – Part I, so I click on the link and, scanning the opening paragraph, see the words ‘document management’. So far, so good, but then I read the piece…. The opening …
