The productivity time machine: How to bring the AECO industry up-to-speed

From the outside, the AECO industry may look futuristic. We are starting to use tablets in the field, there are 3D design tools that display and predict data, and we are on the brink of utilizing drones to make models from little more than photographs. While it is true that we have some amazing tools at our disposal that enable us to be more productive than in the past, the reality is that compared to progress made in other industries, we are advancing at a snail’s pace.

The Future of Design with Building Information Modeling

Prepare for change to the building design process. Design documentation underwent a shift when CAD came along, and improvedagain when BIM started being adopted as a documentation tool, but BIM is readyfor its next period of growth.  As BIM tools for documentation have becomemore common, we all must now look to understand how this new platform canimpact the actual design process.  BIM tools will bring real timesimulation and experimentation to building designers, which will enable betterdesigns, faster.
