Now what do I think about this? Well if anyone can shake the tree of AEC then google could. There access to data and their aggressive approach to the application of technology would seem to be just what you would want to challenge the status quo. But how far will they go? Are they looking purely at design or the potential for whole lifecycle management with the potential of internet facing open data? Only time will tell but one to watch.

About Shaun Farrell

I have been involved in the construction sector since 1986 and over the years I have seen things change dramatically. Much of the change has been directly as a result of technology. This blog will be about the key combinations of People, Process and Technology. Any views expressed here are strictly my own.
