AEC3 is a consulting company specialising in research, development and application of building information modelling (BIM) technologies in building and civil engineering. It works with clients (designers, construction companies, owners and operators) helping them to adopt and implement interoperable open BIM workflows. As part of the overall consultancy services that AEC3 provides for clients it also focuses on new ways of working, including the continuous process improvement and organisational changes to fully adopt for BIM. AEC3 Deutschland GmbH has a sister organisation AEC3 UK.

AEC3 is a leading organisation for developing and using IT standards for the exchange and sharing of building information. AEC3 personnel provide leadership in the development of Industry Foundation Classes IFC, the open BIM standard how in process of becoming a formal ISO standard as ISO 16739. AEC3 has also been instrumental in developing the neighbourhood standards, Information Delivery Manual (ISO 29481), and the Framework for BIM Guidelines (ISO 12911). AEC3 works with and contributes to standardization organisations such as ISO, CEN, buildingSMART, and DIN.

AEC3 has worked in the area of data interoperability between building and construction domain and GIS, and has recently expanding the scope of BIM interoperability to the infrastructure domain. A major task is currently the preparation of the next generation of the IFC standard to include roads, railways, bridges and tunnels.

Royal NL-engineers, Information management Systems Engineering and Asset Management, Daan Alsem

Sept. 20, 2018

Aim is to enhance the information management and information loss at stage-transitions during the life-cycle of a project. NL-engineers see similar issues using Systems Engineering at Asset Management and want to enhance interoperability and information management in the sector together with the stakeholders in a so-called Market-vision meeting. Daan Alsem, projectmanager from Royal HaskoningDHV, present the CEDR-INTERLINK approach using BIM and the existing open BIM standards at Asset Information Management with Linked Data and Semantic Web technology.

IALCCE 2018 Ghent Belgium

Oct. 28, 2018 - Oct. 31, 2018

IALCCE 2018, The Sixth International Symposium on LIfe-Cycle Civil Engineering.

In our contemporary high-level society, civil engineering structures are expected to be designed to meet long-term requirements related to structural safety, robustness, serviceability, durability and sustainability. Life-cycle civil engineering provides the knowledge and tools to accommodate for these requirements and relates to the design, inspection, monitoring, assessment, maintenance and rehabilitation of structures and infrastructures taking into account their lifetime perspective.

The last decades there is a growing awareness of the importance of a life-cycle perspective in civil engineering and challenges exist to tackle the contemporary needs, for example related to the long-term prediction of material behaviour and structural response, the assessment of existing structures, inspection and maintenance strategies, life-cycle optimization, etc. Considering these needs, the objective of the International Association for Life-Cycle Civil Engineering (IALCCE) is to promote international cooperation in this field of expertise.
