From the AECbytes Archives

  • Now that BIM has conquered the building industry and is here to stay, this article explores the application of the same "information modeling" concept to infrastructure.
  • While the "Internet of Things" can be used to make buildings with smarter controls and sensors once they are built, and inhabited, can it also be applied in the design and construction phases?
  • A broad overview of the IFC model without delving too deeply into its technicalities, intended to provide a better understanding of it to the AEC practitioner interested in interoperability.
