The new route to the future of the built environment

acumen7 members were treated to a fascinating presentation by Bryden Wood’s Head of Global Systems, Jaimie Johnston, at the October meeting. Jaimie spoke about automated construction and how the learning from other sectors is being applied to vastly increase productivity in the design and delivery of assets. Jaimie highlighted the fact that digital design is accelerating due to sophisticated, data-driven tools that go beyond BIM. Algorithmic simulation, machine learning, and generative design massively accelerate the process. Better still, they generate far more possible solutions, resulting in better outcomes. This session covered two open source design apps, one for housing: Prism and one

Leveraging the experience of the past to transform the future

acumen7 members were joined by Martin Paver of Projecting Success at the October meeting. Martin explained that as projects progress through their life cycle, they create a huge exhaust plume of data. This data contains insights on a range of topics, including predisposition of a project to variance, duration estimates, cost estimates, risk, compensation events and logistics. When a project concludes, this data is either archived or deleted, yet it has the potential to disrupt how we deliver. There is an opportunity to move project delivery beyond a process heavy, bureaucratic process to one centred around automation and using data to pre-empt emerging challenges. Projecting Success can redu
