AEC Delta Mobility
The “AEC Delta Mobility” project has received funding from InnovateUK under the competition “Increase Productivity, Performance and Quality in UK Construction” (proj. no. 104799), and runs from February 2019 to July 2020. At the Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management, the AEC Delta Mobility project is investigated by Dr Eleni Papadonikolaki, Principal Investigator and Lecturer in Building Information Modelling (BIM), Dimitrie Stefanescu, Co-Investigator and initiator of the open-source platform Speckle, and Paul Poinet, Research Fellow in web-based collaboration in construction. AEC Delta Mobility aims to increase productivity, performance and quality in the construction industry via a £1m innovation grant. The consortium set out to address two industrial issues with their project entitled “AEC Delta Mobility”. Firstly, to help engage manufacturers in the early design stages and result in the increased pre-manufactured value of build assets across the construction sector, and secondly, to increase the productivity of construction projects by over 15%. Even though open standards such as the Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) or the BIM Collaboration Format (BCF) paved the way for collaboration, they are neither suitable for manufacturing nor scalable to large architectural and infrastructure projects. To address such shortcomings, the consortium proposes a novel open source micro-services web framework that will enable the industry to exchange individual object-level changes across various applications regardless of the underlying data format. Instead of exporting a whole file, the aim is to stream individual design changes (a.k.a. deltas) to whichever application is conformant with our newly proposed “AEC Delta Mobility” specification. The project aims to deliver open specifications and an open source reference implementation will to streamline the design processes for manufacturing, reduce delays and thus directly increase productivity on a wide variety of projects.
