Web 2.0, sustainability and sharing AEC data

1,665 views

Published on

Presentation prepared for Be2camp@WorkingBuildings2009, London, 7 October 2009. This focuses on issues surrounding "Green IT", adoption of IT by the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) sector, and how people and processes need to be adapted to accompany changes in technologies.

  • hardware production and disposal can be polluting often over-specified and under-utilised A UN study found that manufacturing a PC consumes 10 times the machine&apos;s weight in fossil fuels and chemicals. UK companies pour around 1.5 million PCs, equal to 125,000 tonnes of IT equipment, into landfill sites every year.
  • uses a lot of power – data centres, IT depts, office, home often require substantial human resources to support and maintain
  • has often encouraged, not reduced, use of paper enormous data duplication poor use (and re-use) of data spiralling demand for more, better, and richer, data often require substantial human resources to support and maintain
  • Again, hardware production and disposal can be polluting Again, often over-specified and under-utilised huge waste of other disposables (toner/ink cartridges, etc) A billion printer and toner cartridges are thrown out worldwide every year (many printer manufacturers’ still practice techniques that make it uneconomic to refill, rather than replace proprietary toner cartridges). Buildings created just to hold paper!
  • Simplified No regulators, end-users/occupiers
  • Sustainability – ICT can play a critical role, yet is largely ignored in many government and industry documents
  • But, of course, IT can also contribute through: improving communications reducing paper production/transport/storage costs reducing meeting travel requirements automating manual processes (eg: CAD, logistics, tendering, etc) cost modelling, energy modelling assessment tools (eg: BREEAM), performance indicators (eg: EPIs) ‘ intelligent buildings’ (ie: IT-enabled BMS) Worthy exception PW involved in working party Also: BIM initiatives – UK contractors and CE BuildLondonLive
  • Look at why collaboration technologies became popular But note: they are still far from universal!
  • Only 20% technologies, 80% people and processes Technophobic? – probably not Conservative and risk averse, reluctant to change - yes
  • Could also say the same about email, perhaps?
  • 80% people and processes, only 20% technologies PLM – Project Lifecycle Management (Newforma) – taking lead from manufacturing where Product Lifecycle Management already has some traction
  • Web 2.0, sustainability and sharing AEC data
