These days the cloud is the common denominator: the platform for project work across corporations and government alike. The UK government is part way through a four-year program for construction sector modernization with the key objective of: reducing capital cost and the carbon burden from the construction and operation of the built environment by 20%.

To this end, the UK government is part way through a four-year program for construction sector modernization. What’s the core aim? It’s reducing capital cost and the carbon burden from the construction and operation of the built environment by 20%. It’s a simple fact: adoption of information rich BIM technologies, process and collaborative behaviors will unlock more efficient ways of working at all stages of the project lifecycle by 2016.

ELECO, www.eleco.com, London, is now making available two solutions: Asta Powerproject BIM and its ELECO BIMCloud collaboration solution. These programs showcase the face that ELECO is committed to providing innovative BIM solutions to assist construction industry participants to work more collaboratively and with greater efficiency.

As an extension of ELECO’s current market-leading project-planning solution, Asta Powerproject BIM allows 3D building models to be connected and to interact with project-management schedules in one application. This capability is currently unique to Asta Powerproject BIM, and gives users of the software a competitive edge in 4D planning (3D+time) – with greater efficiency and less margin for error.

Ideal for the secure storage of building project information ELECO, BIMCloud also enables architects, estimators, project managers and other project participants, on a controlled and authorised basis, to access and share information and thereby to facilitate collaboration on the project.

Central to these objectives is the adoption of information rich BIM technologies, process and collaborative behaviors with to drive more efficient ways of working at all stages of the project life-cycle by 2016.
