KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden to Establish Trimble Technology Lab for Architecture, Engineering and Construction

Trimble ,KTH | June 04, 2021

Sweden'sKTH Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) has received a gift from Trimble to establish a state-of-the-art Technology Lab for architecture, engineering and construction (AEC). The lab will expand the university's leadership in training and research in 3D building design, digital fabrication and the sustainable built environment. Trimble's broadConnected Constructionportfolio enables all professionals along the project lifecycle to accelerate project processes—improving productivity, quality, transparency, safety and sustainability, while reducing waste. The Trimble Technology Lab will provide students enrolled in KTH's School of Architecture and the Built Environment hands-on experience with Trimble solutions. Applications of these solutions range from scanning buildings or sites, design and 3D printing of architectural building models and digital fabrication to implementing construction cost estimating and scheduling to improve productivity and reduce costs. Partnering with Trimble allows KTH to more fully integrate across its curricula the technological tools that are rapidly transforming how buildings and living environments are designed and constructed. "The School of Architecture and the Built Environment is very happy to establish this exciting, innovative collaboration with Trimble," saidMuriel Beser Hugosson, head of the School of Architecture and the Built Environment, KTH. "The new Trimble Technology Lab will support us in offering applied experience of cutting edge technologies to the next generation of civil engineers and architects during their studies. We look forward to many exciting developments in both education and research through our collaboration." "Sweden'sKTH Royal Institute of Technology is an outstanding addition to our network of labs around the world," saidTove Lindbland, business development manager, Trimble Sweden. "We believe the lab can play a significant role in providing students with greater opportunities to acquire hands-on knowledge and skills of advanced technologies that will allow them to make an impact in the future for construction in the region."

TOPTAL LAUNCHES NEW E-BOOK AIMED AT HELPING ENGINEERING LEADERS NAVIGATE THE CHALLENGES OF BUILDING, SCALING THEIR TEAMS

Toptal | January 20, 2022

Toptal, which operates a curated network of highly-skilled freelance talent with business, design, and technology expertise that allows companies to scale their teams on-demand, released its latest e-book, Architecting Scalable Engineering Teams. The publication features insights from engineering leaders at five fast-growing companies into how they structure, manage, and grow their teams. For many CTOs and directors of engineering, building scalable and successful software engineering teams can be difficult, due in large part to competing pressures and responsibilities. In addition to managing a growing team, they are tasked with keeping an eye on overall business objectives and navigating the pressures of their leadership roles—overcoming technical challenges, motivating the team, planning for scale, settling disputes, tracking key metrics, and reporting to executive management—all of which require them to make countless vital decisions daily. "The structure of a team goes well beyond simply covering new tasks. It can actually help alleviate many management challenges," The experts we talked to agree that a singular 'perfect' engineering team structure doesn't exist, but each of their stories illustrates a common thread: maintaining flexibility to weather organizational or product changes and solve problems as they arise." -Taso Du Val, Founder and CEO of Toptal. The e-book highlights five different team models, acknowledging that any given structure for success rests largely on an organization's size, industry, and product: Three-in-a-box team leadership. ActiveCampaign, a customer experience automation software company, uses this model to increase team autonomy as its business scales. Stakeholder-focused squads. At Toptal, these squads are integral in building strong relationships between engineers and business stakeholders to ensure consistent delivery of business value. Front-end/Back-end split structure. Cube, a financial analysis and planning platform, employs two different leaders—one to helm the front-end team, and another focused on the back-end team. Satellite teams. At Cohesion, a cloud-based IoT company for smart buildings, satellite teams ensure rapid scale and eliminate the complexity of hiring, onboarding, paying, and managing each team. Function-centric engineering hierarchy. Valence, a community for the next generation of minority leaders, utilizes this model in which each engineering team reports directly to the CTO, who acts as both the engineering leader and the product leader. Across all five models, engineering leaders recognize the value of temporary help—whether it's to build their teams or to add expertise that they may not have in house. "Sometimes, a project needs to get done, but the leadership team isn't sure if the increased capacity will be necessary in the long run,That is why so many startups rely on talent networks like ours to augment their teams. When you have an extra load, it's really nice to have an amazing network of talent that can help scale up." -Marco Santos, Director of Engineering at Toptal. As the stories in the e-book illustrate, engineering teams differ from company to company and can change over time. Learning from other engineering leaders about what has worked and adapting those options to a specific organization or product situation can help ensure a smoother journey and deliver better business outcomes. About Toptal Toptal operates a curated network of highly skilled freelance talent with business, design, and technology expertise that enables companies to scale their teams on demand. Founded in 2010 and now the world's largest fully remote workforce, Toptal has served more than 10,000 clients and with a global network of talent numbering over 10,000 people in 100+ countries.
