Free (Your Mind) | AEC-ST Virtual Expo 2015

AEC-ST Virtual | Opening [EDIT as of 07/10/2015:  The 24/7/365 beginning of July 14, 2015 has been rescheduled to be: September, 22nd 2015. END EDIT]

Immerse in a digital BIM event at this free peer-to-peer interaction which is a promising idea! Free to attend, simply sign up here and virtually see you 'there'. -The gauntlet is now set, next we'll see if this proves out to be of value transforming ideas from the virtual to the real-world(s) ;)


I am looking forward to finding if there are only marketing encounters or if it also has content-rich opportunities...

"Until now, there has not been a virtual event that addresses the IT needs of the entire facilities and construction team…how information and electronic data are used and exchanged; how resources and assets are leveraged throughout the lifecycle of the facility; how information standards are defined and shared. Whether a building, a roadway, a bridge, or a power plant, designers, engineers, owners and operators are faced with the ever-growing challenges to work more efficiently together.
While other events target only a niche or two within the lifecycle, AEC—ST Virtual is the only event that brings the entire team together to focus on the important issues of interoperability for effective facility planning, accurate design, improved construction and efficient maintenance and operations.
A simple statement, but so many specialized areas of knowledge are needed to make it happen:

  • Building Information Modeling (BIM)
  • Energy-Efficiency
  • Facility Management & Performance
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
  • GreenBuilding, Design & Construction
  • Sustainable Infrastructure
  • and more!"

Selected Photos From My First Day Out In(dia)

Several years ago I traveled to Bangalore for a month to teach Revit and BIM to a group of Architects... well, seems I never posted these images so I will now :) FWIW, the number of people that can fit on a scooter is truly impressive and clearly varied ;) Necessity, the mother of...
