We couldn't be more thrilled about the mention of our work by James Benham, Josh Bone and Rob McKinney in Episode 47 of the ConTechTrio. Listen to the entire episode for great insights into the latest construction technology, and listen at 28 minutes for their take on ClashMEP.
Thanks ConTechTrio for spreading the word!Listen to "ConTechTrio 47 Elizabeth Bigler from McCarthy Building Companies" on Spreaker.
2017 has finally arrived and, as is the case for many this time of year, we felt the need to take a momentary pause to reflect on the year that has just passed. It was a big year for Building SP, with the release of GenMEP and ClashMEP. We've been inspired by the many advancements in automation, virtual reality technology and other tech that we feel will reshape the way we work in the architecture, engineering and construction space. Here's a quick look back at our top 5 posts from 2016.

It's the last Friday before Christmas... Is your shopping done? If it's likely you'll face at least one check-out line today, why not squeeze in some reading? Here's a quick look at some of our favorite pieces from around the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) world from this past week.
Obviously, building information modeling (BIM) is a hot topic around our office. It's our goal to make its adoption easier and make workflows seamless. We're happy to announce that we've come one step closer to that goal with the introduction of ClashMEP! ClashMEP is a Revit add-in that brings dynamic, real-time clash detection to the Revit platform. It allows you to see clashes as you model (yes, for real!); compute clashes along a machine, engineering, and plumbing (MEP) route; and find all clashes through a bounding selection. Clash detection is done against other Revit objects, linked models, IFCs, and point clouds. It even works in C4R environments. For more information, check out our website or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Winter storms are raging across the country, but at least we've made it to another weekend! There's been a lot going on this week. Let's take a look back at the tech news that grabbed our attention in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) space.
It's been mentioned on more than one occasion that the AEC industry as a whole is slow to embrace new technology. But as technology continues to advance at an ever-increasing pace, the construction sector is going to have to keep up. Fortunately, the ConAppGuru (a.k.a. Rob McKinney) and Caterpillar put together some handy guidelines for how to run a tech-focused job site. With everything from digitizing paperwork to "smart" wearables for safety to machine automation, the guide details how the proper implementation of new technology can transform the construction site, ultimately making projects smoother, safer, and far more cost effective.
See BuildingSP's webinar "Getting Started with Dynamo and GenMEP." We will show you how GenMEP can be used with Dynamo to improve mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) workflows through advanced automation.
View this webinar to:
- Learn about GenMEP, a powerful clash-free auto-routing tool for Autodesk Revit
- Learn how Dynamo can be used to automate your MEP workflows with GenMEP
- Learn about upcoming functions for GenMEP in Dynamo, like automated hanger and seismic bracing placement
Their recent podcast was focused on laser scanning and you can hear their impressions of our work! BuildingSP is mentioned at 35:20 on the podcast but we highly recommend you listen to the entire piece!
