French journalist Grégoire Noble attended a recent debate between Thomas Albisser, Hop-Cube’s CEO, Marc de Nomazy, HSE Director at TELMMA property group and Andrien Sanchez, head of Environmental Engineering at Bouygues Bâtiment on the building sector at the time of its digital transition.
Here is its article published on December 10th on batiactu.com – Article in French -.
From Big Data to Open Data, the construction industry is literally being swamped by data.
Digital transformation of the construction sector is running. As a result, all the actors involved face a proliferation of sources of information related to buildings and to their operations. What impact will this new connectivity have?
Hop-Cube, Bouygues Construction and Telmma brought elements of answers. Here are a few quotes from the article below (in French):
THOMAS ALBISSER HOP-CUBE
“I believe that gathering data in new buildings is quite easy. Most of them are now fully equiped with connected devices. The real challenge will be to collect this data in already existing buildings. Besides, most of those buildings are isolated from oneanother. Having a more global vision at the neighborhood scale or even at a city scale would be much more interesting.”
MARC DE NOMAZY TELMMA
“We are now starting to think data and most of all, Big Data. Technology is now in line with this new transformation. We are now able to gather data every 10 seconds in order to maximize buildings’ monitoring. And tomorrow, we will not only be able to gather separated data but to combine them all, from the building itself to materials it is made of. The final level will be to put those indicators together in relation with the usage data of each resident.”
ADRIEN SANCHEZ BOUYGUES BÂTIMENT ÎLE DE FRANCE
“Connecting buildings is not only fashionable, it is definitely a deep trend. From a constructor point of view, I can tell you that we are now responding to a strong demand. This fundamentally changes the way we work. We hired 4 people entirely dedicated to Building Information Modeling (BIM).”
