AEC trends

Why the construction industry is embracing prefabrication

The construction industry is using digital fabrication methods, robotics, 3D printing and drones. Learn why.

An era of connection for builders, designers and engineers

Find out how the AEC industry may be affected by major changes revolutionising the means of production and the nature of demand.

3 technology disruptors to the AEC industry

Technology is changing quickly in design, engineering and construction. Find out how to better embrace these changes to create more value and competitive differentiation.

Make more informed design decisions, build more efficiently and cost-effectively and manage and maintain buildings with greater ease using BIM.

Reduce waste and increase profit margins with tools that help contractors and subcontractors plan better, produce results faster and finish projects on budget.

Use BIM in any type of civil infrastructure project to create visualisations for stakeholder approval, develop 3D models to identify problems before hand-off and deliver projects on time and on budget.

Use intelligent data to improve operational efficiencies and meet compliance requirements. Minimise design and construction cost, shorten schedules and enhance project quality for Engineering, Procurement, Construction (EPC).

Improve the performance, efficiency and data quality of your utility infrastructure projects throughout their lifecycle with BIM. Improve service through better stakeholder collaboration, process efficiency and access to data for safety and reliability.

Start projects faster, collaborate across disciplines and develop intelligent 3D models for both the inside and outside of industrial buildings and plants.

What is BIM?

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that equips architecture, engineering and construction professionals with the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct and manage buildings and infrastructure.

Why BIM matters to your business

Whether you're looking to comply with government and commercial BIM mandates, or you simply want to improve your firm's productivity and quality of work, BIM is worth a closer look.

With BIM, you can spin buildings around; you can turn them upside down; and you can understand, in ways we never could, how buildings will be going together.

— Mike Beckett MCIOB, Director, Hill

Implementing BIM and digital workflows has allowed us to stay competitive and it allows us to offer the best service to clients. We’re now able to win more tenders and offer a better, more engaging service that our clients want. We wouldn’t be winning the work we’re winning now if we hadn’t embraced BIM and technology in this way.

— Johnathan Munkley, BIM Director, WYG

A few years ago BIM had not been considered; today BIM is integral to our strategies for improving project delivery and ongoing asset management performance.

— Karen Alford FCCA, BIM/GSL Programme Manager, Environment Agency

In order to maintain competitive advantage around the world, we have implemented a BIM first strategy, to ensure that all projects can be delivered in the most accurate, timely and cost effective manners, for all clients.

— Graeme Padgham, Global Head of IT and BIM, Cundall
