BIM meets Wiki at DesigningBuildings

Construction’s own wiki, DesigningBuildings has launched a free online guide to BIM Level 2 compliance. On 4 April 2016, Level 2 Building Information Modelling (BIM) became mandatory on centrally-procured UK public projects, with far-reaching implications for those involved. Clients, consultants, contractors and suppliers are all required to understand the finer details of the Level 2 process. …

OpenBuildings now on Android

OpenBuildings.com, the crowd-sourced building directory I wrote about last month, is now available on multiple mobile devices. Just ahead of the launch of its Buildings Android app, I met up with the business’s two founders, COO Tom Mallory (left) and CEO Adel Zakout (right), in London last week. As previously described, OpenBuildings is a social media application …

OpenBuildings.com: crowd-sourcing a building directory

When I discovered the crowd-sourced building directory OpenBuildings.com I was immediately intrigued, not least because of its ambitious strapline: “Archiving the world’s built environment.” I have been a long-time editor of Wikipedia and am interested in how social media can be used in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) field to share and develop information and …

Asite community revisited

Back in June, I wrote about construction collaboration vendor Asite‘s revamped website and its new social media features. Three months later, I had a quick look to see how the Asite community has been developing…. Blog posts have been a bit slow in coming. Three in June, one in July, none in August and one …

From PLM and social media, to AEC design

I have been monitoring conversations about social media among some manufacturing and product lifecycle management (PLM) commentators, and a post by Desktop Engineering‘s Kenneth Wong – What PLM Can Learn from Social Media – has lingered in a browser tab for most of the past two days as I’ve re-read it and pondered it. Kenneth …

Reviewing 2008

Just as I did last year (see Reviewing 2007), I have been looking back at my five predictions for 2008 (see one, two, three, four and five for more detail). 1. Further polarisation of the UK construction collaboration marketplace. I do think the UK market has polarised a little further, though the trend may have …

Construction, ICT, marketing and web 2.0

“The day a computer can lay bricks, is the day I f*** off out of the industry!” The above words (or a rough approximation of them) were repeated at a meeting of construction marketing people (CIMCIG) I attended on Tuesday evening. The story-teller was agreeing with Construction News editor Nick Edwards that some construction people …

RIBA wiki

The Royal Institute of British Architects has its own wiki: the RIBAPedia: a “collaborative, free source of information relating to architectural research”. The initiative has been led by the RIBA’s Research & Development Department, funded by the Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning through Design. I was unaware of this until Mel Starrs brought …

A bit of a Web 2.0 day

I spent a fair chunk of yesterday looking at and talking about various Web 2.0 applications, mash-ups and events. It was all started by reading an article on the BBC website, Government launches data mash-up. This led me to look at FixMyStreet.com, an officially-sanctioned project from MySociety.org that allows UK residents to report vandalism, abandoned …

Reviewing BuildingSMART 2008

I have now had a couple of days to reflect on Wednesday’s BuildingSMART conference in London (see my live-blog posts here and here). My thoughts…. UK lagging behind – Given that it’s an organisation’s annual event, you would expect a lot of the same people to turn up each year, and there were a lot …
