Tech and Business Innovations From the AEC Giants: A Research Project
In the commercial construction industry, the nation’s largest architecture, engineering, and construction firms–the AEC Giants–are responsible for 60-80% of all new construction and renovation projects in any given building sector. These firms, in most cases, are also leading the way in testing and adopting alternative, tech-based approaches to design and construction. In this session, BD+C’s Editorial Director will present the latest findings and trends from the publication’s ongoing research effort to identify novel tech and business innovations (with proof of ROI) at the AEC Giant firms. The research efforts spans more than 485 firms and covers everything from offsite construction to AEC tech tools to AI and machine learning, and much more.
