Innovative architecture meets modern IT

The handwriting has been on the wall for the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry for at least a decade. Tasked with providing solutions for aging civic infrastructure, designing more energy-efficient buildings, and improving productivity, AEC firms must evolve and adopt new standards and technologies. To stay competitive, many AEC firms are switching from paper-based processes and 2D software to powerful 3D digital-modelling applications.
Meanwhile, globalisation has resulted in a proliferation of branch offices, and collaboration across multiple countries and time zones is now commonplace. A mobile global workforce, together with increasingly sophisticated software, has solved some business problems — but it has also created more headaches with each terabyte of data produced.
