Almost since we first started to use mobile phones on construction sites, we have sought to use them to manage defects and conduct inspections (I was at BIW, later Conject, when it launched its Windows app in 2006).

Viewpoint restructured and growing

Viewpoint CEO Manolis Kotzabasakis says construction needs to change, and believes his company is well-placed to lead industry adoption of SaaS-based ‘field to back office information on the go’. Following Aconex’s recent acquisition of SaaS construction collaboration rival Conject, there was – as usual – some debate about the implications of the deal for other vendors …

Being able to extract data held across multiple CDEs will be increasingly important.  Yesterday, I attended the final ThinkBIM conference of 2015 (“BIM outside the Building”, organised by Leeds Beckett University’s CKE); …
