Build-to-Rent: Helping the UK Build Back Better

whitePaper | June 19, 2022

The private rental market is playing an increasingly vital role in meeting the nation’s housing needs. Over four million households currently rent their homes, which is doublethe two million who rented at the turn of the century.1 In London alone, it is predicted that by 2025 just under 40% of households in the capital will be renting.2 The Montague Report, which was published by the Government in 2012, considered how to encourage investment into the private rented sector, and recognised the opportunity for the rental market to accelerate the delivery of homes, whilst setting the standards for accommodation, and seeking to attract institutional investment into the market.

Engineering Data Management and Document Control

whitePaper | February 20, 2020

Engineering Data Management is all about the creation, version control and fast retrieval of documents. It has little or nothing to do with formal change management, or building a reliable audit trail. Engineering Data Management Systems should make life for the engineer as simple as possible without introducing too much complexity. Document control on the other hand, is the management of documents through their life cycle with a much higher degree of reliability for security, version control, review cycle, visibility, availability and, most importantly, for a controlled and reliable audit trail.

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.

A Seamless and Successful Transition from Quality Assurance to Quality Engineering

whitePaper | July 1, 2022

Quality Engineering has gained prominence with the shift to agile and DevOps. Companies are shifting from Quality Assurance process for an agile and scalable application development process. QE brings software development and IT operations teams together, removes silos, and embedding security in every step of the application development process. But this is just the tip of the iceberg among the reasons to shift from Quality Assurance to Quality Engineering. The move towards QE over QA is a cultural shift within the organizations and the development teams.

Digital Twin Cities: Framework and Global Practices

whitePaper | April 20, 2022

The continued growth and success of cities is one of the great triumphs of modern civilization. Cities are home to the majority of the world’s population and generate more than 80% of GDP. Rapid urbanization has also brought about new challenges as cities have struggled with congestion, pollution, increased carbon emissions, inequity and exposure to natural disasters such as floods and storms. The COVID-19 pandemic and climate change have further intensified these issues. The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development sets out the goal of “building inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities and communities”. Whereas these goals may be universally accepted, the path to get there is not as clear. Innovation and empowerment of digital technology are critical to transforming our cities. Policy support and institutional change are also essential.
