A Blueprint for Transformative US Infrastructure

October 30, 2022

A Blueprint for Whitepaper
State governments across the US need to integrate their planning and development of public infrastructure if they are to deploy funds from the new Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) effectively, future-proof their communities, and maximize the value of the capital they employ. The case for integration is strong from both a financial and a social perspective, with the potential to help the country meet a number of infrastructure-related challenges.

Parametric Modeling Innovates Bridge Design

whitePaper | January 6, 2020

Bridge design is no simple matter. While traditional 3D modeling software is useful for buildings, these structures don’t present the same challenges that bridge design does. Jalpesh Patel, Senior Technical Consultant with Allplan explains why: Buildings are mainly linear, vertical structures with minimal to no obstruction. Bridges, on the other hand, are non-linear, horizontal structures that must weave through obstacles, existing structures, and multiple right-ofway restrictions.

Unwrapping Construction Challenges and Private Mobile Networks

whitePaper | December 28, 2021

The construction industry is going through a digital revolution that is changing construction sites and in the future is predicted to look drastically different with autonomous machinery and drones, virtual reality and equipment and other digital innovations a common sight. This is not the introduction of technology for technology’s sake but to help the industry deal with some of its key challenges. Electronic Media Services (EMS) through its long history of working with partners in the construction industry knows it has and continues to find change and in particular digital change difficult.

BIM from A to Z now and into the future

whitePaper | September 16, 2022

Though the construction and engineering industry is infused with high-tech, when we discuss digital transformation, we are primarily referring to the implementation of BIM - Building Information Modeling. BIM is one of the most promising developments in the AEC (architecture, engineering, and construction) industries.

The Top 5 Most Over-Engineered Building Components

whitePaper | November 14, 2019

When specifying the mechanical and electrical equipment for a building, it is easy to assume that extra capacity is a good thing, but it actually can be just as counterproductive as having undersized installations. In the first place, extra capacity comes at a higher upfront cost, which makes the building owner assume unnecessary expenses. There are also many types of equipment that experience performance issues when over-engineered, which can range from low energy efficiency to a diminished service life.

Rules for successful Integrated Planning as part of BIM

whitePaper | May 31, 2021

he digital planning, which can now be found in architecture and design offices, at general contractors or via prefabrication, bricklaying robots and GPS-based excavators already on the building site, is characterized by Building Information Modeling (BIM). Yet, BIM is only really an efficient and commercial option if it is paired with the integrated working method.

Solving the Challenge of a Growing Shortage of Engineering Expertise

whitePaper | January 9, 2020

Trained and experienced designers are your greatest resource. With more employee retirements in the near future, and with complex technologies being implemented, graduate engineers without specific application experience are finding it difficult to step into the shoes of those retirees easily. Companies are having to deal with these situations right now.
