The building industry in the world today is at large, far behind the rest of the world, technically. Alongside this, it is at threat of being dominated by a small selection of software vendors. These vendors push specific software solutions to the technically unskilled consumers in the AEC industry. The software they provide however is monolithic, native and heavy. Containers, distributed computing, and open source microservices and applications offer a solution to turn the construction industries future on its head. When computing is ubiquitous in our buildings with the internet of things, the whole way we think about building design has to change. We need to think in advance about how our applications which will run our buildings are developed. Each building is bespoke and the offers currently on the software market simply wont fit the bill in the near future. We are trying to develop a kubernetes based platform to lay the foundations for the future of lightweight bespoke apps developed for our built environment.
