This article by Abdelwahab Krim, an MEP Project Manager, highlights the practical benefits of using BIM software for MEP design for achieving a high-quality result in the shortest possible time, using as reference a project he worked on Oran, Algeria.
An overview of some of the projects presented, including DPR’s use of SNYCHRO for prefabricated construction scheduling, the 3D city model of Perry by Foth, Kokusai Kogyo’s work in Japan’s Project PLATEAU, and ACCONIA’s use of digital construction in Melbourne’s level crossing removal project.
An overview of some of the sessions presented at Graphisoft’s Building Together event by AEC firms around the world, including Enzyme in Hong Kong, Farkasvölgyi Architects in Brazil, Mostostal Warszawa in Poland, and TeCe Architects in Turkey, along with Powerhouse Company, Bond Bryan, and Pita.
This article describes a promising initiative in the application of digital twin technology at the city level: the DUET project, which is focused on creating digital twins — i.e., virtual replicas — of cities in Europe to allow them to be better designed, operated, and managed.
This article explores the cutting-edge AEC technology applications developed by CORE Studio, a dedicated software development group at Thornton Tomasetti. The applications including Konstru, Swarm, Asterisk, Trace, and many more for design, analysis, collaboration and visualization.
Layer is a new AEC application that was launched close to six months ago to address what seems to be an obvious need in the industry—organizing and integrating the vast amount of disparate data that is typically collected on site during the retrofit or construction of a building project.
Fender Katsalidis describes the implementation of AEC technology on the “Merdeka 118” project, a 118-storey, mega-tall skyscraper under construction in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Upon completion, it will become the tallest building in Malaysia and Southeast Asia, and the second-tallest building in the world.
This article questions why we still don’t have a smart building design tool which does not require us to painstakingly model every detail in our buildings, but can automatically create much of it from a conceptual sketch using a rule-based expert system.
