  • A2K Enters Global Services Partnership with ENGworks

    Thursday, 14 May 2020 A2K Global, announced today a global services partnership with ENGworks, an internationally recognised leader in Building Information Modeling (BIM) services and solutions to the Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Owner (AECO) and Building Product Manufacturer (BPM) community. This marks an evolution in the content and service delivery strategy for A2K as it seeks to leverage the RIB Global Alliance Network to bring a more comprehensive and scalable services offering to multinational BPMs and Owners. “This partnership strengthens A2K's long-standing commitment to providing project-ready BIM content that conforms to international industry standards and  expectations. ENGworks brings a proven track record of quality service and technology delivery that can be leveraged by our extended channel of Value Added Resellers (VARs)" said Matthew Sheales of A2K Technologies (matthew.sheales@a2ktechnologies.com.au). Building Information Modeling (BIM) continues to change the way the industry is designing and constructing commercial buildings. Detailed and accurate product information has become a critical input throughout the design-to-construction lifecycle and has become a challenge, especially for BPMs, to deliver consistent and quality data to all of their markets. BPMs must adapt their digital marketing strategy to deliver high quality BIM-ready content to serve the new tools and processes in design, fabrication, construction and ultimately facility and energy management. ENGworks, in this strategic partnership with A2K, is building a Global Content Network focused on establishing much needed standards and quality guidelines for content creation, but also ensuring customers get the local service they need. BPM’s need to create a variety of CAD and BIM formats in support of the increasing pressure by owners for higher efficiency and performance throughout the entire design and construction lifecycle of a BIM project. “We see a need to provide content solutions for the AECO and BPM communities on an international level while supporting local project demands for languages, codes and standards. This can only be accomplished through a network of providers with knowledge of their specific construction market, working within a common framework of quality and consistency”, said Chris Di Iorio, CEO of ENGworks. In its leadership role within the RIB Global Alliance of Companies, A2K sees the creation of this global service delivery capability as core to enabling its VARs and Channel Partners the ability to enhance their service offerings and support multi-national customers with a network of capable providers. “We see a clear path to providing our customers and manufacturers the local project delivery they need with a scalable and adaptable service infrastructure to meet their international requirements” said Matthew Sheales.

  • New prefab prototype to drive tiny home movement in Geelong

    Originally Sourced from Architecture & Design A new prefabricated prototype developed by a Deakin University-led collaboration is expected to make a big impact on the ‘tiny home’ housing segment in Geelong and beyond. Deakin University partnered with Geelong technology company FormFlow, and short-term accommodation provider Samaritan House Geelong to develop a prototype of a prefabricated one-bedroom unit designed to achieve greater affordability for homeowners and people in need of transitional housing. Named Prefab21, the tiny house measures 4m by 10m, and comprises of a living space, bedroom and bathroom. Comfort, sustainability and affordability were the primary objectives of the design process for the tiny home, according to project leader Professor James Doerfler from Deakin’s School of Architecture and Built Environment. “Our architecture students worked closely with our partners to design a prototype Independent Living Unit that will be used at Samaritan House Geelong. “Prefab21 draws on sustainable design principles using strong, durable, recyclable materials, and exploits the potential of FormFlow’s world-first revolutionary bending technology and advanced prefabrication processes.” Samaritan House Geelong will install Prefab21 in the suburb of Moolap as transitional accommodation for homeless men. Seven units will be installed as part of the project, which aims to address the shortage of affordable rental accommodation for single homeless men in Geelong. Samaritan House Geelong board member Brian Sherwell observes that the project has excellent potential for independent living, especially related to social housing needs in regional Victoria and elsewhere across the country. Prefab21 met six-star energy ratings and had a reduced carbon footprint thanks to the use of recyclable materials in its construction, FormFlow chief operating officer Bernard Brussow said. The tiny home incorporates passive solar features such as a north-facing orientation, elevated ceiling, high eaves and a ‘floating’ roof, which accommodates the winter sun and blocks the summer sun. The window positions and high ceilings give the tiny house a sense of spaciousness, eliminating the boxed-in feeling. Brussow notes that the Prefab21 concept has wide potential in prefabricated modular living and tiny house applications. “As well as transitional housing, the design is already being used by conventional homeowners who need extra space, such as families with growing teenagers. It can also be used as emergency accommodation after bushfires or earthquakes and its modularity means it can be expanded for standard housing, with particular value in high density urban areas and developing nations,” he added.

  • Harnessing the data advantage in construction | A2K Technologies AU

    HARNESSING The data advantage IN CONSTRUCTION DOWNLOAD PDF Harnessing the data advantage in construction Forward Today’s construction industry is under more pressure than ever to deliver projects that are on time and on budget—all while dealing with record global labor shortages, supply chain issues, and other challenging external constraints. Factors like accelerated construction schedules mean critical decisions must be made quickly by the project leaders working in the field and in the office. The quality of these decisions often determines a project’s success or failure. Technology adoption in our industry has rapidly accelerated in recent years and we’re on a journey to full-scale digital transformation. As a result, the volume of project data has grown exponentially—with construction leaders identifying that their own data has doubled in just the last three years.
