Why Design-Assist Should Be Used in Complex Projects

Article | March 13, 2020

Throughout history, construction has always followed the Design-Bid-Build delivery method. This straightforward, 3-step process first involves an owner hiring an architect to design a building, followed by a bidding process that results in a general contractor – typically the lowest bidder – being selected to build the project. Finally, the winning contractor takes the architect’s design drawings and begins construction.

Thoughts on Security Engineering - How to Secure Systems in Real World

Article | April 27, 2020

Software Engineering is about building systems that behave the way it is meant to. Security Engineering on the other hand, is about ensuring a given system DO NOT behave in a way it is not meant to. Consider the example of a Adobe Reader - A software which is meant to process and visualize the contents of a PDF Document.

The Efficiency of BIM for Bridges

Article | July 14, 2021

When the Tamina Bridge in the Swiss Alps was first proposed, the engineers were uncertain how they would create a bridge that spanned two different heights at each end of the valley, at a height of 220m (772 feet) above ground. Yet despite these challenges, the bridge was completed a year ahead of schedule in just four years – mainly due to the efficiencies that Building Information Modelling (BIM) provided. While the name may inadvertently imply that only buildings can benefit, BIM offers a host of advantages when designing and building bridges as well.
