Tools leverage the power of people. At BuildingSP, we are at the forefront of the latest trends in AEC technology - Automation, Generative Design, Computational BIM, Machine Learning, and Big Data. But our goal is to revolutionize the building design and construction experience. We are passionate about improving AEC through our unique understanding of people and technology.

Computational BIM is the use of computers to leverage, extend, and improve otherwise manual tasks in BIM. Computational BIM uses the power of algorithms and automation to lower the amount of manual input, increase modeling cadence, and improve quality.

Work faster and work smarter. We're here to help.

Generative Design is the Future of Work

alt-icon

Generative design is the combination of computational methods, form synthesis, and outcome optimization. In GenMEP, generative design occurs at two levels - at each quarter inch of a given infrastructure route and at a system level with multiple routes. Generative design changes how we work - faster, smarter, better.

Lean and Strategic

alt-icon

Our products optimize workflows, which is inherently a lean and strategic solution. The computational power of GenMEP allows for the generative creation of many different outcomes for MEP systems. This means that a lean practitioner can align these outcomes with a client's value system. Read more about our thinking of how GenMEP enables lean thinking.

Hello, everyone.  Time for our weekly roundup of articles at the intersection of BIM; artificial intelligence; and the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) space.  Here goes:

Ben Rossi of Information Age published this article last month exploring the many ways AI is coming of age and how it will ultimately transform the way we do business.  He posits, "AI has evolved to become an extension of how people today are increasingly leveraging their collective conscious and shared experiences in a hyper-connected world."

Similarly, Ahmed Banafa's piece, "How Artificial Intelligence Will Kickstart the Internet of Things," suggests that the use of AI will become critical in sorting through the rapidly increasing amount of data connected to the IoT.  Perhaps the introduction of AI into this space will revitalize what some are seeing as an increasingly lackluster and static environment.

Speaking of lackluster, The Financial Times published a report this week titled "Business schools no longer relevant in the age of automation."  In the report, Pat Chapman-Pincher highlights the disturbing lack of IT and technological knowledge among senior executives around the globe.  He points to the fact that most MBA programs have been teaching the same core curriculum for the last half-century and have largely ignored advances in technology and its impact on business, relegating such concerns to specialized IT departments.  This is a disturbing fact indeed as more and more tools are being designed to embrace the power of automation and AI. 

Line//Shape//Space illustrated this trend perfectly in an article last week covering the potential of generative design as computers gain knowledge that can be applied to multiple projects.

Finally, Chilean President Michelle Bachelet announced that Chile will follow the example of the UK and begin implementing BIM protocol for public projects.  BIM practices are also making moves outside of the AEC realm as the mining sector considers its practices to streamline and bolster an industry facing a downturn.
