Project Profile: Jewel Changi Airport

Jewel Changi Airport is a new, 1.4 million-square-foot mixed-use hub and lifestyle destination at Singapore’s Changi Airport, one of the world’s busiest aviation facilities. The project opened this spring and has drawn acclaim for its unique design, highlighted by the world’s tallest indoor waterfall and a translucent, ovoid-shaped gridshell roof spanning 650 feet across. Cristobal Correa, Principal of Structures at BuroHappold and director of this project describes the implementation of AEC technology on it.

The Flexibility of BIM and Benefits for MEP Engineers

In this article, Michael Tobias of New York Engineers, lists the many benefits of BIM for MEP engineers in addition to the primary advantages of saving time and money, reducing errors, improving productivity and quality, and being able to work as a key part of a multi-disciplinary team.

Visicon: Model Review and Validation

This review explores Visicon, a new solution with a fresh take on model viewing, data visualization, model interrogation, and design coordination in AEC. It also includes some additional functionality for structural engineers.

Business Process Integration in Construction

Daniel Bévort, CEO of ADEACA, describes how Project Business Automation (PBA) can be used to integrate the fragmented array of business applications used by construction companies, giving them better insight and allowing them to manage their business in real time.

From the AECbytes Archives

  • Now that BIM has conquered the building industry and is here to stay, this article explores the application of the same "information modeling" concept to infrastructure.
  • While the "Internet of Things" can be used to make buildings with smarter controls and sensors once they are built, and inhabited, can it also be applied in the design and construction phases?
  • A broad overview of the IFC model without delving too deeply into its technicalities, intended to provide a better understanding of it to the AEC practitioner interested in interoperability.
