Existing Delivery Mechanisms Failing


Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

Existing mechanisms for delivering planning, design and constrcution services - both in the government and private sectors - are badly broken and need to be replaced.  Integrated project delivery, building information models are two innovative delivery mechanisms that should be studied more closely.  Though innovative new business processes are required to successfully achieve IPD and BIM the benefits associated with these new delivery mechanisms far out weigh the costs of imlementing them.

Existing mechanisms for governing - both in the government and private sectors - may benefit from an overhaul similar to the one being considered by the AECO industry.  The article linked below, from which the following excerpts are taken, expands on this thought.

There were problems with the blue model. It abided systematic discrimination against women and minorities, and a case can be made that it depended on that discrimination to some degree. Consumers had little leverage: If you didn’t like the way the phone company treated you, you were free to do without phone service, and if you didn’t like poorly made Detroit gas guzzlers that fell apart in a few years, you could get a horse. The system slowed innovation, too; AT&T discouraged investments in new telecommunications technologies. Rival companies and upstart firms were barred from controlled markets by explicit laws and regulations intended to stabilize the position of leading companies. By some accounts, too, the quarter century after World War II was a period of stultifying cultural conformity. In this prologue to the end of History, some “last men”, from the Beatniks to Lennie Bruce to Andy Warhol to Lou Reed, were already bored, resenting the pressure to conform that the mass consumption, Fordist era entailed.



The blue model began to decay in the 1970s. Foreign manufacturers recovered from the devastation of World War II and in many cases had more efficient and advanced factories than lazy, sclerotic American firms. German and Japanese goods challenged American automobile and electronic companies. The growth of offshore financial markets forced the U.S. financial services industry to become more flexible as both borrowers and lenders were increasingly able to work around the regulations and the oligopolies of the domestic market. Demand for new communications services created an appetite for competition against Ma Bell. The consumer movement attacked regulations designed to protect big companies. As a sign of the times, Ted Kennedy, of all people, cosponsored a bill to deregulate the airlines. Anti-corporate liberals rebelled at the way government power and regulation allowed corporations to give consumers the shaft. The new environmental movement pointed to the problem of privately caused but publicly paid-for externalities like air and water pollution.

Fracking Technology Evolving


Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

With billions of barrels of oil trapped in shale formations around the world - not to mention trillions of cubic fee to natural gas - its no wonder the energy industry has developed innovative new ways to get at those trapped reserves.  The latest developments on the fracking front are detailed in the article linked below.

I am presenting at the Western Canadian Construction Superconference this week and I will be in contact with a lot of folks in the energy sector.  I will gather information on where these folks are with IPD, BIM and lean processes and report my findings. I anticipate there being some opportunities for advocates of these processes to positively influence the process and the environment.  Especially when it comes to water use and re-use.  I'll keep everyone posted.

Keystone Pipeline Rejected... to protected the environment


Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

Jobs?  We don't need no stinking JOBS.  We're all GREEN now.

Anybody else think a pipeline to the Pacific that ships the oil in tankers to China will be MORE environmentally friendly than a pipeline from Alberta to Gulf Coast?

Drill baby drill.... says Obama's Job Council?


Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

Not sure how to square this report with the aggressive effort to strangle oil production in the Gulf, prevent drilling off the east and west coasts, in Alaska and in the mountain west.  Maybe the Obama Administration is turning over a new leaf.  We shall see.

Oil Refinery on Island of St. Croix Shuttered - More jobs circle the drain


Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

Oil refineries?  We don't need no stinkin oil refineries.  We're all GREEN now.


“This is a blow in the gut,” Senator Terrence Nelson told The Associated Press. “We have to organize an economic plan, and it might involve assistance from the federal government.”
Nelson accused Hovensa of violating a long-term agreement with the government to continue refinery operations on the island. Nelson said it is unclear what Hovensa will need to do to compensate the government for breaching the agreement.
“It’s devastating,” Senator Samuel Sanes said. “It was something I suspected was going to happen, but of course it took me by surprise. On a personal level it affects many people in my family. I have many in my family working for Hovensa.”
In January, Hovensa entered into a consent decree with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Justice Department in which the company agreed to invest $700 million on pollution controls after a series of chemical releases affected people living downwind from the refinery. Hovensa also agreed to pay a $5.4 million penalty for violating the Clean Air Act.

I wonder if the need to invest an additional $700 million in the plant could be part of the problem with keeping the enterprise afloat?  I wonder, also, why we have 60+ year old oil refining facilities and no permits for construction of new oil refineries have been issued in 30+ years?  I wonder if Obama's promise that "electricity prices will necessarily sky rocket" and his assurance that we would be paying higher prices for gasoline were part of a bigger plan?

It's almost as if the Obama Administration WANTS higher energy prices or something isn't it?

What if the doers went on strike?


Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

Society pays an inordinate amount of attention to whether and to what degree things are "equal".  Conservatives clamour for "equal opportunity" while liberals - or is the politically correct term now "proggressives"? - insist the government support "equal distribution" of material things.  Both camps ignore a disparity that really matters and is universally present.  The disparity, in all societies, between those capable of creating wealth and those who are not.  Throughout the centuries risk takers and dreamers have led innovative revolutions and reaped the rewards.  I call these folks the "doers".

There are a lot of "doers" among those who advocate the use of IPD, BIM and lean processes in the BUILT environment.  And those "doers" exist on every continent, in every racial group and come in every political stripe. 

Lately, society has been highly critical of the "doers", with many calling for the "doers" to "pay their fair share" - whatever that means - and generally lamenting the fact that the "doers" have more stuff than others.  The article below, by Thomas Sowell, addresses disparities in the ability to create wealth in an insightful way.  Sowell says, in part:

It is a phenomenon among particular racial, ethnic or other groups in countries around the world — the Ibos in Nigeria, the Parsees in India, the Armenians in the Ottoman Empire, Germans in Brazil, Chinese in Malaysia, Lebanese in West Africa, Tamils in Sri Lanka. The list goes on and on.


Gross inequalities in skills and achievements have been the rule, not the exception, on every inhabited continent and for centuries on end. Yet our laws and government policies act as if any significant statistical difference between racial or ethnic groups in employment or income can only be a result of their being treated differently by others.

Googlize My Body; Googlize My BIM


Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

Readers familiar with the Functional Digital Asset series and the Wicked Solutions series I authored for AUGIWorld Magazine last year know one mantra in my world is mastery of the information rich data stream that flows through the BUILT environment.  BIM enables us to visualize and manage that data more effectively.  Below I'm linking to two thought provoking items.  The first is what I refer to as the Googlization of our bodies and the second is a link to a blog post by WPS that lists 10 "Truths About BIM."

Virtual design and construction tools are "Googlizing BIM" - hat tip to Gregory Arkin, author of the bimboom blog and the Director of BIM Strategy at ACAI & Associates in Florida for that phrase and apologize to others who may used it before out of earshot - just as scientists are "Googlizing" our bodies.  The ramifications of routine and easy access to vast swaths of information rich data are mind boggling.




While not as compelling visually as the video above, the blog post below, by WSP's Bridget Kennerely, is insightful and mentions a study commissioned by WSP that I have ordered and will review upon receipt.  Truth No. 10, which proclaims BIM to be the DNA of construction ties the video above to the post title nicely.

Central Planning Fails

Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

The article linked below strikes another blow to the "urban renewal" myth that permeates the planning community.  Given the decay, decadence and decline rampant in our own city centers its hard to imagine planning more of the same, but that's exactly what Vietnam seems to have done.  Planning itself is not bad, but there needs to be some recognition of what the folks in the area want.

I'm reminded of the excellent book by Rick Harrison, Preferbia, in which he details the America's love of the suburb.  This highlights the theme of loving your monsters and performing a little sustainable ju-jit-su on the processes.

BIM Enabled Firms Enter Strategic Alliance


Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

BRICSNET and MABEC join forces to leverage geo-spacial data in the FM world and round trip it to and from the BIM world.  It's almost as if they had recently talked to somebody who edits the BUILT - BIM to FM section of AUGIWorld Magazine isn't it?  Actually, I've got business cards from BRICSNET's Fuhrman and MABEC's Ghere laying on my desk and I kicked some of ideas around with each of them after the DC BIMStorm.

Glad to see these kind of collaborative efforts taking place.

Below is an excerpt from the press release.
Bricsnet FM America, Inc. and MABEC Group, Inc. today formalized a strategic alliance to create a bi-directional data exchange between cloud-based BIM databases and Bricsnet, the corporate real estate/facilities management tool.

30 Story Hotel Built in China in 15 Days


Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

Can you say IPD, BIM and lean processes?  The Chinese got way out in front of us when they leveraged virtual design and construction tools, processes and software to build out infrastructure for the Olympics.  And they haven't looked back since.  One big difference is the government is, for all practical purposes, the client in China and the government stays out of the way while planners plan, designers design and builders build.  Regardless, the results are impressive.

We can continue to shackle our innovators and fall further and further behind in the US or we gain put our innovators back to work.  My preference is we put our innovators back to work.

Hank Rearden Lectures Wesley Mouch


Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!


The EU Innovation Convention in Brussels invited Michael O'Leary, CEO of Ryanair, to their meeting in December to discuss innovation.  Ryanair is, essentially, the Southwest Airline of Europe offering no frills flights at low low prices all across Europe.  O'Leary explained the basics of a free market economy to his captive audience of Wesley Mouch acolytes

O'Leary struck me as the Hank Reardon of Ireland.  The video is linked below for those interested in seeing what he had to say.

Love Your Monsters - Postenvironmentalism and the Anthropocene


Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

The collection of essays set forth in "Love Your Monsters - Postenvironmentalism and the Anthropocene" by Environmentalists Michael Shellenberger and Ted Nordhaus looks like it will be a great read for those of us seeking to increase the efficiency with which facilities and infrastructure are delivered in the BUILT environment.  Nordhaus has taken on traditional environmentalists in the past, arguing against the "humans are the problem" crowd for some time now.  The latest collection of essays appears to continue the tradition.

Ron Bailey at Reason.com provides an Excellent Review from which the excerpt below was taken.

A devastating critique of Malthusian environmentalism is offered by Daniel Sarewitz in his essay "Liberalism’s Modest Proposal, Or the Tyranny of Scientific Rationality." He begins by citing Jonathan Swift’s famous satirical essay, "A Modest Proposal," in which Swift suggested that the problem of Irish famine might simply be dealt with by eating Irish babies. Sarewitz argues that Swift’s goal was to show that “pretty much any position, however repulsive, could be advanced on the back of rationality.” Sarewitz argues with regard to the problem of climate change modern environmentalists have adopted a form of scientific rationality in which the fact that burning fossil fuels to produce cheap energy harms the climate suggests that solution is to “make energy more expensive.” Sarewitz then points out that the access to cheap energy is, in fact, “a basic requirement for human development and dignity.” He adds, “This fact is so blindingly obvious that nearly any large developing country has treated the idea of a global agreement to raise the price of energy as a joke of Swiftean character. The difference being, of course, that it was not a joke.”
Sarewitz then identifies the political incoherence that lies at the heart of environmentalism. On the one hand, environmentalists want to avoid the risks of new technologies and on the other Malthusian hand they worry about declining stocks of natural resources. Consequently, environmentalists “find themselves, for reasons of risk, opposing new technologies that could help resolve issues of scarcity.” As an example of this political and scientific incoherence, Sarewitz cites the case of genetically enhanced crops which environmentalists oppose because of their alleged risks to human health although such crops would ameliorate environmentalist concerns about soil and water depletion, pesticide residues, and population growth. Sarewitz cuts through the current incoherence by rejecting the environmentalist scheme to raise energy prices by means of a global cap-and-trade regime on fossil fuels. Sarewitz instead argues for an intensive research effort aimed at developing cheap low-carbon energy sources.
The Swiftean tale advocating the Irish eat their babies during the famine compares favorably with the anology of cinching a tourniquet around our collective necks to stop the nose bleed that is global warming.  To the extent global warming is a problem and can be controlled we have many options short of shutting off the flow of blood and oxygen to the world's economies which is exactly what policies that "necessarily cause the cost of electricity [aka energy] to skyrocket" do.

Love Your Monsters invokes the moral hazards Frankenstein cautions against.  Frankenstein only went rogue after he was rejected, shunned and abused by his creator.  This fits the theme I advocate here which is to embrace cheap energy, the innovatiion and technologies required to exploit it and the development that results from it.  If those who favor sustainable development leave the field to others - i.e. reject, shun and abuse shale gas, fracking, nuclear power plants etc. - we will have no positive influnce.  Further, the desperate masses of the world, and the governments beholden to them, have ZERO interest in continuing to burn dung, plow with oxen and live hand to mouth.  Resources, like the 6.6 Tcf of accessible shale gas reseves mentioned in the earlier post, will be devoloped and used to improve the lives of billions.

It's time to rethink sustainability and the path forward.

Fruits of our Taxes - Venture Socialism Fails Again


Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

The government has no business picking winners and losers.  Venture capitilists are supposed bet with their own money, not ours.  Venture Socialism, on the other hand, is much more attractive to the "investors" because they are betting with other peoples money and buying votes at the same time.  Of course, the problem with Venture Socialism - as with old fashion Socialism - is that you eventually run out of other people's money!

The story excerpted and linked below highlights to folley of allowing government beauracrats to stay over night at a Holiday Inn Express.  They wake up thinking they are Venture Capitalists when they are not.
Range cost U.S. taxpayers $64 million and Georgia taxpayers another $6.2 million. Tuesday’s sale netted $5.1 million, which will help offset losses suffered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Georgia’s money, which paid for some of the ethanol-making equipment, won’t be recouped outright, but state officials expect LanzaTech to use the machinery.

Global Energy Chess Board in Flux


Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

Regular readers of this blog will not be surprised to learn that globally there are 6.6 trillion cubic feet of shale gas deemed recoverable by the Energy Information Administration (EIA). 

That is in addition to the 6.6 trillion cubic feet of regular proven gas reserves found mostly in Russia.  Shale gas resources are widely - and strategically - disbursed.  Winners of the shale gas sweepstakes include China, the United States and Argentina along with South Africa, Australia, Poland, France, Chile, Sweden, Paraguay, Pakistan and India.

These vast reserves protend an energy boom of historical proportions.  US energy companies are fighing tooth and nail to develop these resources, inspite of the best efforts of the Obama Administration to curtail those efforts.  China has partnered with US energy companies to develop shale gas resources in the US with the clear intention of learning the best processes which it will then deploy to develop its own vast reserves.  Africa, India, Pakistan, Argentina and Poland sit on large reserves of their own that hold the promise of energy independence.

The development of the technologies required to extract shale gas, and the identification of these vast reserves, have combined to reset the global geo-political chess board.  OPEC and Russia will lose a significant amount of leverage if these shale gas reserves are developed.  The potential for economic growth, freedom and geo-political leverage in countries sitting on these reseves should not be under estimated.



"The global energy chessboard is changing, and markets will be realigned. Countries that have never had so much available energy will become self-sufficient, and perhaps even exporters," Luis Alberto Terrero, head of the Venezuelan Gas Processors Association (AVPG), told IPS.
As gas supplies grow, "fossil fuels may become cheaper, the growth of alternative energies will slow down, and new alliances, investments and trade networks will be established," Terrero said.

Global proven reserves of conventional gas total 6,608 trillion cubic feet (Tcf), according to statistics from British-based oil giant BP, and the largest deposits are in Russia (1,580 Tcf), IrĂ¡n (1,045 Tcf), Qatar (894 Tcf) and Saudi Arabia and Turkmenistan (283 Tcf each). 
 
An EIA study published in April 2011 found practically the same volume (6,620 Tcf) of shale gas deemed recoverable in just 32 countries, and the reserves are differently distributed, with China possessing 1,275 Tcf, the United States 862, Argentina 774, Mexico 681, South Africa 485 and Australia 396 Tcf.
Advocates of sustainable development, IPD, BIM and lean processes should embrace the opportunities sure to flow from the energy industries efforts to locate, extract and distribute these resources.  The impact of an energy boom flow far beyond the well site and the pipelines.  New infrastructure is required, demand for housing spikes, supporting industries thrive and new industries emerge.  Opportunities abound for long and short term planning and those who understand IPD, BIM and lean processes will be well positioned to serve the BUILT Professionals who deliver those services and support those efforts.
