Strategic leadership for architecture, engineering and construction

Project Technology

Project technology comprises all aspects of the use of computer systems in the design, documentation, building and operational phases of projects in the architecture, engineering and construction industry.

It is becoming a huge challenge for designers and construction professionals to deliver projects successfully whilst having to manage a bewildering array of ever-changing technologies;

The introduction of new working methods utilising intelligent production systems such as Building Information Modelling (BIM) platforms like Revit, Archicad and Bentley AECosim require fresh ways of thinking and working;

BIM is not just a new software platform, it will become a completely new way of working for design practices and their interactions and collaborations with other members of the design team. It is a substantial change management challenge for all elements of a business;

The problem is compounded by the fact that BIM provides just one new albeit substantial element for the design and documentation of building construction. There are many new software applications and methodologies playing a part in the effective exploitation of project technology.
