Deltek Releases the Trends and Benchmarks from its EMEA and APAC Deltek Clarity Architecture & Engineering Industry Study

Deltek | May 25, 2021

Deltek, the leading global provider of software and solutions for project-based businesses, has unveiled the 2nd annual Deltek Clarity industry study results for A&E firms within Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), and Asia Pacific (APAC) regions. The results, based on a survey of over 600 architecture and engineering firms, identify the key challenges impacting the industry, also highlighting bright spots and forecasting future trends. The Deltek study, conducted in collaboration with Longitude, majority-owned by the Financial Times Group, is a roadmap for firms to know the state of the A&E marketplace and provides detailed insight and analysis into financial management, business development, project management, human capital management, and technology trends. The 2021 report revealed that four out of 5 projects within the A&E industry were forced to pivot as a result of the global pandemic – yet most weathered the storm well. While 65% of firms struggled to deliver projects remotely, track projects, or manage dispersed resources, there's a silver lining: A&E organizations across EMEA and APAC now have a chance to emerge from the crisis stronger. Commenting on the research findings, Neil Davidson, Regional vice chairman of EMEA & APAC at Deltek, said, "COVID-19 had a widespread impact on the architecture and engineering industry across the U.K. However, we have seen some firms demonstrate how technology-led strategies have brought the adaptability and agility they have to emerge from the pandemic during a strong position. "U.K. firms have an unprecedented opportunity to create on the momentum for change. Our research reveals a desire for digital transformation as businesses seek to deal with the operational shortfalls that were uncovered over the last 12 months, but there's uncertainty about the simplest way forward. By making strategic technology investments, organizations can drive positive change to create on the chance in 2021 and beyond." Key insights during this year's report include: Emerging technologies: instead of one dominant technology, a variety of emerging technologies are seen as important including data science, big data, and machine learning, which all rise to the highest of the list this year, replacing the web of Things (IoT), geolocation and large data. Competition: handling industry competitors is predicted to stay a big challenge – it's the highest business challenge firms face within the next three years. Business analytics: Firms recognize the worth of technology and analytics to drive business development – it's the most-cited initiative to deal with business development challenges over the subsequent three years. Talent acquisition: Business leaders are setting their sights on new skills to compete within the crowded marketplace. About one in four shall hire additional business development staff over the subsequent three years. About Deltek Better software means better projects.

Vita Inclinata Announces Distribution Partnership with Trident Construction

Trident Construction | August 27, 2021

Vita Inclinata (Vita), developer and producer of helicopter and crane load stabilization and precision hardware, today announced Trident Construction (Trident) will be an exclusive reseller of the Vita Load Navigator — included in the Vita Lifting System family. Trident will represent New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Like the Vita Load Pilot, the Vita Load Navigator attaches under the crane and uses the Load Stability System technology to provide heavy duty control and precision to place loads up to 40 tons on construction sites. Even in adverse weather conditions — like high winds from Manhattan's wind tunnels — the system automatically adjusts to keep the load stable and in a precise orientation. The technology operates to keep workers safe while simultaneously increasing efficiency on job sites; it's a safer alternative to using taglines. "When it comes to crane safety, there are no second chances. Those are the things that keep me up at night," said Trident CEO, Patrick Murphy. Trident, a high-rise and super-structure contractor in the city, owns and operates their own fleet of cranes; thus, sees a huge opportunity for the Vita Load Navigator to keep the project safer and increase efficiency on the job. "Having an automatic system on there that will hold that setting even if winds are acting on it, and a pendant that lets you change the orientation of the load quickly, it doesn't exist right now. It's a piece of rope [tagline] hanging off a load." "This relationship with Trident is exciting for Vita, and to me on a personal level. Patrick and I share a connection as Naval Aviators, where safety and precision are mission requirements. That connection brought us together for a technology demonstration on one of Trident's high rise construction projects in Manhattan. Seeing the innovation and precision that Vita's products bring to high risk construction sites launched this relationship. We can't wait to get Vita's Load Systems onsite and make a difference with Trident," said Chief Commercial Officer, Shelby Mounts. About Trident Construction Trident General Contracting, founded in December 2017 is an Open-Shop Concrete Foundation and Concrete Super-Structure contractor based in Bronx, New York. Trident was formed through the purchase of Advanced Contracting Solutions' assets, contracts, and operates with many of the professionals that gave ACS a stellar reputation. With more than 50 years of combined industry experience and a team of professionals with over $600 million in completed construction work, Trident strives to be on-time and on-budget, high-quality performance.Trident uses leading-edge construction technology combined with good old-fashioned hard work to realize clients' goals and expectations. About Vita Inclinata A friend's death during a rescue operation—with a helicopter close but unable to stabilize due to weather and terrain—was the genesis of Vita Inclinata. Founded in 2015 as a way to solve a real problem, Vita today controls chaotic swinging and spin, and adds safety and precision for rotor wing and fixed wing aircraft and cranes. With the mission of "Bring them home, every time," Vita's technology changes the narrative while saving lives, time and money across industries, including search and rescue, military, firefighting, public safety, construction, wind energy, and oil and gas. The company is headquartered in Broomfield, Colorado, with offices in Washington, DC and Huntsville, Alabama.

The Importance of Digital Transformation for the Construction Industry

PBC Today | September 28, 2020

With SMEs accounting for the vast majority of the construction supply chain, adopting digital transformation could bring significant benefits for the whole industry, yet the evidence suggests they are being left behind. What needs to change? Industry 4.0 is a general term that refers to a range of emerging technologies that many believe mark the fourth industrial revolution. Underpinned by data and analytics, these new technologies are heavily focused on interconnectivity, automation and machine learning. For the construction industry, they represent a world where seamless technology platforms will help improve productivity, promote flexible production capability, create high-value jobs, aid competitiveness and, ultimately, drive growth to support national economic success. However, for the digital transformation of the construction industry to be successful, we need to see adoption not just by large enterprises but in small and medium enterprises (SMEs), which make up a significant percentage of the industry.
