Kickstarting the digital journey of your business is never easy. Heavy resource management, bold initiatives and continuous effort are required in order to convince everyone in your organisation to go digital. Both field teams and people in the office can sometimes be resistant to change as a result of their unwillingness to alter the way they work on a day to day basis or due to the lack of trust on the newly-implemented tools.

How can we design better for Buildability?

Article | March 31, 2020

The use of highly sophisticated building models – as a result of BIM – has transformed how we design the built environment. However, although the digital models used by architects and engineers during design enable impressive visualization and documentation of the designer’s intent, the data and considerations required to construct it are often considered separately. We typically use the design model to communicate the final state of the project – not how it is constructed, even though such considerations result in a more accurate estimate on both project time and cost. Of course, different flavors of BIM tools exist that do consider such topics during manufacturing and construction, but how often do we truly consider the impact of the construction process as part of making the right initial design decisions?

Three years on from the UK's National Infrastructure Assessment - how should we evolve strategic infrastructure planning?

Article | March 31, 2020

Major infrastructure interventions come with significant uncertainty – this is something explored before before. Provision of high quality infrastructure is a challenge faced by every government around the world, and there are many uncertainties around the planning and funding of these schemes that have to be weighed up and balanced. The Enabling Better Infrastructure (EBI) programme encapsulated best practice principles from around the world. We have dipped into this best practice toolkit to underpin our review of the UK’s strategic infrastructure planning system led by the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC), the results of which we have published today.
