In Italy the field of’building It is one of the economic sectors less computerized, but to overcome the crisis of recent years will find new dimensions of efficiency and the process of computerization and digitization It will probably be one of the inevitable step. This is one of the main themes to be discussed during REbuild 2015, the convention of the Italian innovation upgrading and management of real estate to be held on 25 and 26 June in Riva del Garda.
The debate focused on the different ways in which the digital is already transforming the way we design and operate buildings: from thermostats that become points of digital power management for the entire house, new models design not only in 3D but in five other sizes, up to the possibility to use digital infrastructure that allow to realize processes urban regeneration otherwise impossible.
Already today the BIM, Building Information Modelling, It is transforming the way we design, plan, build and manage buildings, bringing together data and views in a multidimensional model that allows us to understand how it will look, the function and the process of construction of a building and the associated costs and operating modes before they have built.
As well as allowing you to identify the solutions more 'intelligent’ already in the preliminary stage, BIM also represents a new ways of working together Built between professionals (architects, engineers and builders) increasing communication and cooperation between the different actors, improving the project and work with huge benefits in terms of time & Speeds.
While many operators are wondering what will be the effects This "digital wave" on construction and, at the same time, They are questioning the roles and skills needed to meet this challenge, some other companies in the construction industry have already embraced this "revolution".
A case in forefront’application of new technologies He comes from Mexico, especially in Guadalajara a center of audiovisual production, Digital and interactive are proposed as economic development model, city and environmental. The project, developed by architect Carlo Ratti and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (WITH) along with other international partners (Metropolis Foundation, Arub, Mobility in Chain e Accenture), It includes several areas of intervention that aim to make this a hub model smart city.
To enable this experience will be the 'operating system', a platform where users can interact with information and digital services. The system will be formed by sensors placed in strategic points of the city can monitor in real time, among other things, car traffic, parking lots and homes. These data, properly handled and analyzed, They will be posted and shared with users through wifi, mobile networks and Cable.
Of this project and other case histories on the application of digital technologies in the building sector will be discussed in depth during rebuild 2015.
