The Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) sector is changing rapidly, with technology influencing how firms design, collaborate and communicate. The continuing need for professionals to be able to work productively away from the office—whether from home, a client’s location, a construction site or anywhere else—is a focus for many firms, and technology needs to meet their needs.

 

We see a hybrid future for these industries, and here are some technology trends that will make it possible: 

 

Establishing seamless connections

Hybrid work models are becoming the norm in AEC firms, so these businesses are implementing new technology and processes to allow their staff and contractors to work from anywhere, with the same experience as working in the office.  

 

This isn’t always an easy task when working with Building Information Modelling (BIM), which many AEC firms use. This collaborative process requires BIM authoring tools, powerful desktop workstations, and highly graphics-intensive 3D applications. These firms are finding an efficient solution in Teradici CAS and the secure PCoIP® protocol.

PCoIP solutions help create seamless connections, providing high-computing power and centralized data stations for efficient collaboration.

 

Real-time collaborative BIM workflows and data centralization 

Having a centralized data system is essential for productivity and collaboration with teams working remotely. Working collaboratively with the typical High Dynamic Range Imagery (HDRi) and complex datasets isn’t possible with traditional VPN connections or home workstations that may not be as advanced as in-office computers.  

 

PCoIP solutions will be necessary here too. With centrally located computers, and all data streaming to team member computers using only pixels, all team members can work confidently knowing their work is secure and that they’re working on the latest version of these collaborative files. 

 

Meeting demand for high-fidelity graphics

With hybrid working models, support for everyday computing functions (like word processing and email) and high-fidelity graphics file collaborations need to work in unison. Teradici CAS-powered virtual workstations give AEC firms the flexibility to provide users access to powerful GPUs as required.

 

PCoIP solutions for AEC

While many protocols exist, only PCoIP is specifically designed for demanding graphics-intensive workflows like those used by BIM workflows in AEC firms. PCoIP Ultra® provides the most advanced features—all available with the Teradici CAS remote desktop solution.  

 

It’s well-suited for applications on Windows, macOS, and Linux and is compatible with nearly any device, including home PCs, laptops, thin/zero clients, and mobile devices on construction sites. It helps companies centralize their data sources and provide their team, whether from home, the office, or a construction site, with a full RGB color space to help minimize any errors in design, just as if sitting in the office.  

 

PCoIP technology ensures accessible, remote access to a wide array of architecture, engineering and construction software, such as BIM and CAD applications through all project phases.
