To automate or not to automate – future time saved > development time

Automating repetitious processes is a significant way to increase productivity, yet a cultural shift in the AEC space is required to eliminate people repeating familiar yet unnecessary manual tasks, time after time, project after project.

We push ourselves to continually assess our workflows and manual tasks to identify automation opportunities; this usually starts with assessing “why are performing this task in the first place” and often results in altering the overall process itself for the better. Use-cases to date include template creation, report production, file configuration, data population and model manipulation.

Following successful implementations, we are striving to embed a company ethos that actively encourages 3D model and BIM-based automation with a simple mission - future time saved > development time
