Engineering isn’t just physics and mathematics. It’s a discipline that covers almost every aspect of modern life and every industry: sports, medicine, architecture, theme parks and anything you can think of in between. So reach for your set-rulers as we present to you six tasty engineering nuggets of truth.

IMI Flow Design

Hydronic Balancing = a necessity for good building control. In theory, new control technologies can satisfy the most demanding requirements for indoor climate and operating costs. In practice, however, not even the most sophisticated controllers always perform as promised. As a result, comfort is compromised and operational costs are higher than expected.

Since the early days of the personal computer the construction industry has been slow to adopt digital technology. As a result, increases in construction productivity have lagged virtually every other major industry, such as automotive and aircraft manufacturing. It’s true that every construction project is different, unlike automobiles and planes, but we can do more to improve the future of construction.

Sustainable Construction and its Role in Making a Better Modern World

Article | March 12, 2020

Green and sustainable – these have become the main objectives of most construction projects being made today. And why not when they offer a lot of benefits not just to the environment but to the building owner and occupants too. When we hear of sustainability, the first context that comes to mind is that of the environment. But since the EIA U.S. Energy Information Administration reports that almost 50% of CO2 is emitted by buildings, it’s about time sustainability is spoken widely also in the context of architecture.

Requirements volatility is the core problem of software engineering

Article | February 20, 2020

It's now been more than 50 years since the first IFIP Conference on Software Engineering, and in that time there have been many different software engineering methodologies, processes, and models proposed to help software developers achieve that predictable and cost-effective process. But 50 years later, we still seem to see the same kinds of problems we always have: late delivery, unsatisfactory results, and complete project failures.

Where Are You in Your Additive Manufacturing Automation Journey?

Article | May 12, 2021

Somewhat ironically, many processes in additive manufacturing – which is often defined as a digital manufacturing technology – remain manual and siloed. Automation is still not widely deployed in additive manufacturing. The vast majority of companies adopting 3D printing remain dependent on human labour and access to physical inventories. Below we’ll be exploring the stages of maturity in additive manufacturing IT automation; areas companies should consider automating and software solutions available to help you digitise and streamline your additive manufacturing operations.
