Robots and automation are an integral part of the manufacturing industry today, enhancing human intervention to process control, coordination, and higher order decision making. Automation is not a new age concept in Business Process Management (BPM) either; in fact, it has existed alongside several transformational point solutions, ERP's, and business solutions.

IoT and BIM for automatic performance recording

Article | May 14, 2021

As part of a Digipro project, ALLPLAN is working with three partners to research a system for automatic performance measurement using IoT and BIM. DigiPro focuses on the digitalisation of products, processes and business models in companies. As part of the German-Dutch INTERREG program Digipro, a project is currently underway that aims to automate performance recording on the construction site using IoT (Internet of Things) and BIM (Building Information Modelling). A consortium of four companies - BuildersMind, mangineers, Nijhuis Bouw B.V. and ALLPLAN - is working on a solution for automated construction site monitoring that documents construction progress in near real time. Promising results have already been achieved in an alpha test phase on two construction sites of Nijhuis Bouw in Enschede 2020.

Evolving how strategic infrastructure projects secure planning approval in the UK

Article | May 14, 2021

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has recently launched an operational review of the Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIP) regime. This regime, established in 2008, was put in place to bypass local planning approval for projects that had a predominately national rather than a local impact. Over the last few years, the regime has taken a significant battering with ‘development consent’ (the granting of planning approval) for major infrastructure programmes being brought before court due to the corresponding National Policy Statement (used to determine if a project is in line with government ambition) being out of date with latest government policy. The most notable example being a third runway at Heathrow. This highlights that something is wrong with turning strategic policy intent into decisions on granting development consent.

7 Ways to control construction project costs

Article | May 14, 2021

Construction engineers are driven to look for ways to improve everything from construction methods, the materials used, to the systems used to develop new building designs with lower cost margins and thin financing costs. Under those circumstances, there is a lot of pressure on contractors and designers to find more effective ways to reduce construction costs. BIM is being used by a growing number of engineers, architects, and contractors to make the design and development of structures faster, better, and more cost-efficient. BIM has been proven to help reduce costs and increase efficiency throughout the project lifecycle ranging from design and construction to facility management.

How UK and Ireland Construction Companies Create Higher Trust - and Higher Profitability

Article | May 14, 2021

Trust has always been at the heart of the construction industry. Whether you’re turning up for a day at work at the Gherkin in London, enjoying a rugby match at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium or catching a train at Amsterdam Centraal, you need to trust that the infrastructure around you is well-constructed and safe. And of course, as a construction professional, you need to trust that your colleagues and collaborators can fulfil their commitments – so that projects are completed and everyone is rewarded.
