This article describes a field trip to a construction site to see robots from Dusty Robotics marking up a multi-trade site layout. The robots are used by construction workers in conjunction with software on a tablet and a laser tracker to guide the movement and track the location of the robots respectively.
This article captures the highlights of three customer presentations — Enzyme, 3LHD Architects, and Maber Architects — at Graphisoft’s recent Building Together Learn event, focused on data-driven design, design collaboration, and the use of VR respectively.
This case study shows how the integration of BIM design through 4M FineHVAC software revolutionized the design process for the HVAC system within a hospital in Sydney, Australia, yielding significant time savings and a marked improvement in quality.
An overview of some user implementations presented at Esri’s 2023 User Conference, including PCL Construction, Foster + Partners, the City of Cambridge in Massachusetts, the Netherlands’ Kadaster mapping agency, and the PG&E utility from California.
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 describes the research that was conducted by a team at the Technical University of Denmark to study the impact of COVID-19 on the passenger flow in the Copenhagen Metro, using passenger flow data and station floorplan drawings as well as Bentley Legion software for simulation of pedestrian flow.
