What Is Digitalization? Here Comes the Fourth Transformation in Building Design

Source:Redshift by Autodesk – BY NICOLAS MANGON, AUTODESK VP How does a building take its place in a city’s skyline? In the Hollywood version of the story, owners commission a building, define basic requirements, and stand aside as architects work their magic with pencils and drafting tools. Picture the 1949 movie The Fountainhead, about an innovative yet self-absorbed architect named Howard Roark (allegedly modeled after Frank Lloyd Wright) who refuses to compromise his ideals. Controversial though it is, the film (and the novel before it) has inspired generations of people to become architects. A lot has changed in the 70-plus years since then. About 40 years ago, the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry began an accelerating digital transformation. It started with digitization—the transition from paper drawing and analog processes to digital tools and computer-assisted design. In parallel to digitization, architects …

10 Positive Construction Trends to Come Out of COVID-19

Source: Trimble Constructible by David Burczyk No one can argue that the global COVID-19 pandemic has been a tragedy on many levels. From loss of life to long-term economic impact, this health crisis will be the source of bitter memories for years to come. However, it’s encouraging to recognize that some positive things have come out of our collective response to this difficult situation. Within the construction industry — historically notorious for being slow to change — COVID-19 has actually revealed an impressive level of resilience and adaptability under very challenging circumstances. Following are 10 positive trends we’re seeing in today’s construction industry that accelerated in response to the pandemic: 10 Positive Construction Trends to Come Out of COVID-19 1. Increased use of offsite prefabrication 2. Using AI-based video analysis to keep jobsites safe 3. Using extended reality to help teams …

Digital Twin Concept Spreads into Smart City Environments

Photo by The Lazy Artist Gallery from Pexels According to the latest research from ABI Research, the installed base of digital twin and city modelling deployments is expected to grow from just a handful of early implementations in 2019 to more than 500 by 2025. “Originally developed for industrial systems, the digital twin concept is now spreading to the smart cities environment,” says Dominique Bonte, vice president for End Markets at ABI Research. “However, it won’t be a single Uber-like digital twin for an entire city but rather an aggregation and integration of domain-specific digital twins for systems like smart buildings, traffic infrastructure, energy grids, and water management.” Bonte pointed out that the digital twin concept and the urban modelling paradigm are transforming how cities are designed, monitored, and managed. They allow optimising the holistic performance of cities across verticals …

Going Digital Is No Longer Optional

Cadalyst.com | By: Mark Coates It has now been seven decades since Alan Turing, the pioneer of modern computing and artificial intelligence, wrote, “I propose to consider the question, ‘Can machines think?’” Turing’s question has now been proven beyond doubt in many fields: In chess, the IBM supercomputer Deep Blue beat former chess grand master Garry Kasparov in 1997. In science, the HiSeq X genome-sequencing system can map tens of thousands of human genomes in a year — a task that initially took an army of scientists from 20 universities across the world more than 13 years to complete. In the construction and infrastructure realm, professionals now need to ask these questions: “Do you believe that machines can help you to think better? Do you believe that information and data can help you to work smarter?” What’s the Payoff? As …

7 Amazing Examples of Digital Twin Technology In Practice

Forbes.com | By: Bernard Marr Wouldn’t it be extraordinary to simulate plans or build what-if scenarios for the products, facilities, and processes you wished to change before you actually put real-world resources behind real-world implementation? That’s the promise of digital twins. And, many businesses and industries are taking advantage of this promise as these 7 amazing examples of digital twin technology illustrate. What is a digital twin?  As an exact digital replica of something in the physical world, digital twins are made possible thanks to Internet of Things (IoT) sensors that gather data from the physical world and send it to machines to reconstruct. While the concept of a digital twin has been around since 2002 when Michael Grieves at the University of Michigan first used the terminology, it was IoT technology that made it affordable and accessible to many more …

Construction firms need to up their game to go digital, new research reveals

Infrastructure Intelligence | By: Andy Walker New research has unveiled that almost half (44.3%) of businesses in the construction industry have limited or no insight into company or project performance. Professionals working in the sector are either not collecting data or are collecting it manually instead of digitally, says the report, Unlock the Benefits of Going Digital in Construction. The research conducted by Bentley Systems, the design, construction, and infrastructure software provider, of more than 720 construction professionals across the world also found that less than half (43.5%) of workers said they have no digital capabilities for collaboration or that their information is either paper-based or siloed. The impact of this is significant, as analysis from Mace, a global construction consultancy, recently found that almost 80% of large construction projects experience cost or programme overruns and that if project delivery does …

Going Digital in Construction

CONSTRUCTECH.com | By Peggy Smedley Can machines help construction professionals think better? A recently released study by Bentley Systems implies many in the industry do not believe so—or, at the very least, their actions suggest they don’t. Of the 720 construction business professionals surveyed, just shy of half (44.3%) of the respondents in Bentley’s survey say they have limited or no insight into company or project performance. However, 45.2% say they do recognize the importance of collecting project data, they’re just not doing it or making the most of it. It’s a digital age, and data is a new type of currency. Businesses that aren’t capitalizing on digital processes and data-driven insights are missing out, and chances are their competition won’t make the same mistake for long. In construction, Bentley’s data reflects too many firms aren’t taking advantage of digital construction and the benefits …
