Project BEAM is the next subject study project inside the AATEG (Architosh AEC Technology Evaluation Group) and is open to all AEC users whether they have signed up for the AATEG or not. For readers not familiar with AATEG, see our story from back in April (see: Architosh, “Open Invitation: Join Architosh AEC Technology Evaluation Group,” 27 April 2023).
Project BEAM is AATEG’s next open participation group subject, and it begins with an open invitation for AEC readers to take a brief survey about the BIM industry and building cost estimation, take-off, management, and cost data. A brief 11-question survey is open now and serves as an on-ramp to the Project BEAM alpha-level participation group.
For AEC BIM professionals, Project BEAM represents a new software initiative that addresses foundational challenges in the AEC industry involving the critical issues of building costs, their estimation, management, data sources, and the role all of this plays in the design and engineering phases for AE professionals.
To take the survey on Project BEAM, please follow the link and complete all questions. To fully participate in the Project BEAM technology evaluation group, you must first join the AATEG (group) so we can communicate with you as part of a group. Those readers already in the Architoh AEC Technology Evaluation Group (AATEG) will be contacted about this survey separately, but they are free to take it now.
Here is the link to the Project BEAM survey.
