The Value Propositions for Owners & Built Industry Professionals 

Integrated digital assets create SMART buildings that may empower planners, designers and constructors to reduce the initial cost of construction by 33%. Those assets may also empower owners to reduce operations & maintain costs by 33% throughout the life cycle of a facility. SMART Built Cultures create work that is more profitable & more rewarding for all built industry stakeholders.

Urban planning completed in a Smart Built Culture enables stakeholders to understand existing facilities, infrastructure and residential assets VISUALLY, and empowers decision makers to VIRTUALLY adjust while planning and as demographic and economic realities unfold in the community over time.

Topics to Explore Include:

Convincing Owners to Demand BIM & IPD & SMART Buildings
Motivating Specialty Trade Contractors to Utilize BIM & IPD in SMART Buildings
Adopting, Adapting to and Deploying Value Add Business Models in a SMART Built Industry
(aka Creating a Smart Build Culture to Increase Production, Productivity, Safety & Quality)

Tools Used to Encourage Use of BIM & IPD:

Charitable Doll House Exercises – A Low Cost, Low Risk Introduction to Smart Built Cultures
Smart Built Cultures Courses: The Cultural and Legal Implications of BIM & IPD
Katy’s Castle Workshop – A Smart Built Culture Exercise

Another Nanotechnology Update - Teslaphoresis




Don't sleep on Rice University out of Houston.

The video and article linked below describe the use a Tesla Coil to induce nanotubes to self-assemble at a distance into carbon wires / fibers. Pretty cool research. Cannot wait to see the nanotechnologies that emerge over the next few years.



Check out the video too.
