 Digital twins

The construction industry has the possibility to provide a virtual representation of projects with information and design with an innovative tool like Digital twin. A greater collaboration from engineers, data and other stakeholders to create an integrated way for every stakeholder to be informed of the progression of the project with everyone input at the correct timing.


Aerial visions are perfect for surveys and also remote monitoring. Moreover, the site can be supervised from remote and also undetected geological elements are discovered on site.

Augmented reality

Augmented reality (AR) is that it means a partially rendered environment, not a fully virtual one. Projects can be marketed well in advance with possibilities of viewing the design and any other aspect of the building well before the project starts. Detailing tasks, safety alerts and other support can be decided in advance as well to minimize accidents and reduce the risk of inefficiency.

 New materials

Development of new materials is a necessity for many industries, with increasing demand for low-carbon and sustainable operations. To be in term with sustainable goals and standards. A  liquid form of titanium dioxide and its natural reaction to ultraviolet light, the material can remove free radicals and other pollutants from surfaces, air and water. Therefore, reversing pollution, dramatically improving air quality and enabling the slabs to stay cleaner for longer.


For many of us, robotics is a thing of fiction and film, They are already in use today though, in a range of sizes and niches. Robots can reduce tremendous workload and take an intelligent decision at the right time without being bias.

3D scanning a valuable tool for construction projects

Construction projects need accuracy, perfect measurement and quality designs to match the client requirements. 3D Scanning is a valuable tool for the construction industry to accomplish challenging projects and reducing reworks to keep the project on schedule and within budgets. With the possibility of detecting issues and faults before its work, 3D scanning helps to tackle wastage and saves money in your construction projects.

The benefits of 3d scanning for construction te sector

  • Reduced Rework: On a typical construction project, rework can account for up to 15 per cent of the cost of construction, but frequent 3D scanning can highlight any potential issues before they turn into change orders, reducing the risk for the main contractor.
  • Better Information Management During a Project: Scanning at set intervals makes it possible to document critical milestones, such as hand-offs between different trades, to compare work delivered with as-designed models and drawings for quality assurance.
  • Lower Overall Risk: The precise information reduces the scope of error which diminishes the chances of miscalculations, which further prevents unprecedented accidents from occurring. This implies the prevention of collision because the contractors can even plan the building material movement in the construction area.
  • Capture Existing Conditions in High Resolution: The technology, particularly, comes in handy during renovation projects wherein understanding what is to be done at the initial stage saves both time and money. Because of the technology, contractors can scan and preserve the image of a structure as it was during the initial phase.
  • Fewer Physical Site Visits: Datasets are accurate, measurable, and shareable, eliminating the need for any guesswork when not on site.
  • Speed, accuracy, and consistency: This technology provides a means of collecting millions of measurable data points, accurate to within 2mm, in just seconds.

Artificial Intelligence for better design of buildings through generative design

Artificial Intelligence (AI) provides many potential openings and benefits for the construction sector. Among various benefits, AI brings in for construction the plan and design of a building for a 3D model-based process. Machine learning algorithms backed by AI enables to explore all the variations of a solution and generates design alternatives to match perfectly mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems while simultaneously making sure that the entire routes do not clash with the building architecture.

About Generative Design

Generative design is about designing a building by taking into consideration spatial requirements, materials, manufacturing methods, plumbing structuring, engineering aspects, electrical systems and cost constraints as well. Under generative design is about exploring all possible permutations to create the perfect building structure.

To create a perfect building structure while taking into consideration various aspects from the design to the cost involved in the construction of many data and testing as well as other aspects. Juggling with data and sourcing data from different sources can be perfectly managed and done by Artificial Intelligence technology. To derive a perfect generative design , AI helps in to cater more inputs as well as bias decision at the end together by taking into consideration loads of external data from third parties as well to come up to the optimal generative design proposal for the best of the building structure for the long run and sustainability of the building. 

When Generative Design is backed with Artificial Intelligence

With machine learning and  AI-like algorithms, the optimal design shape can be reached based on the parameters and data of the user input.  AI enables smart product tools to loops in information for building design. A combination of engineering aspect and designers approach will deliver more innovation and efficient building structures. Ultimately, this shortens the design and prototyping process and speeds up the time it takes for innovative building structures to hit the construction industry.

Moreover, the generative design takes into consideration the goals set by the designer for the building structure as well as looking at the best possible costs involved in producing the design. Embedding initial prototypes with sensors take this one-step further – the feeding back of data essentially allows the building to co-design itself.

AI system has the potential to generate conceptual building structures based on cross-referencing as well with various existing models and using object recognition to generate more innovative, efficient and sustainable structures. The set goals of parameters are well taken into consideration to meets clients requirements as well as cost constraints. WIth AI an optimal design structure is proposed meeting all the requirements.


Architecture goes beyond space and visual, to Architectural acoustic

In Architecture, the visual experience is always regarded as a dominant perception and remains the main concern to designers. The tool of visualization probably came out first and becomes the primary mode of design thinking in practice. However, all individuals give form and definition to the world through multiple senses. Acoustics in architectural impacts many things in a building, from employee productivity in office settings, the performance quality in an auditorium, the market value of apartments, and much more impacts. Let,`s discover the other underlying of architecture.

Understanding Acoustics in Architectural Design

The process about how airborne impact on sound transmitted and controlled within a building depends on the structure design of the building. In a room, every material has an impact on the sound level be it the furniture to the floorcoverings. Elements such as the ceiling system and the wall partitions are the primary factors that designers use to control the sound within a building. Taking all the elements that impact on sound transmission within a building is Architectural acoustic.

Sound is transmitted through the air in a building in various ways, depending on the spaces. The primary elements such as the wall partitions and the ceiling transmit both the airborne sound and impact sound. Airborne sound is sound related to human voices and projected sounds such as phones ringing and impact sound relates to the flooring that footstep and falling objects.

There to have the perfect management of sound within a building Architectural important to be taken into consideration. Depending on the utility of the building being an office, a hall, an auditorium or apartments, the requirements of sound movement is different. To be able to have the required acoustic as per the building and customer requirement the structure of the ceiling, the flooring, as well as the partitioning, are the primary elements to be considered. Different surface projects and transmits different sounds; for instance, concave surfaces tend to concentrate sound in one area, while convex surfaces tend to disperse sound in various directions.

Why the consideration for Architectural Acoustic Design

Taking the science of sound into consideration while designing a building enable to minimise noise transmission from another and control sound within space itself. Can you imagine that building acoustic is important as it impacts productivity and communication in an office space, health and wellbeing in apartments? An employment office, for example, may require all-confidential private offices, while a bank may warrant varying levels of speech privacy. In-office settings, conference rooms and executive offices usually require high levels of acoustical control, but other areas may require only moderate measures.

Going further a concert can be more enjoyable and successful in a hall where the building acoustic has been adapted for concert halls, recording studios. In the education space, a lecture theatre where the quality of sound is intelligibility design is very important in promoting wellness and better transmission of lectures for students. For the health sector, a hospital or daycare centres design with the proper acoustic characteristics promotes wellness of patients and create a more comfortable and relaxing environment.

Proper coordination of acoustics in the design of building with uncomfortable aural sensations and other significant impacts on building occupancies. Considering is important for different sectors it is not only about auditoriums, theatres and religious spaces.
